Percept Live’s ‘FLY’ Music Festival is an International Live Music Festival cutting across multiple genres that brings together the biggest and most legendary names in the world of live music entertainment. The very first edition of ‘FLY’ was launched in 2015 in Mumbai and saw the iconic English singer-songwriter and musician Ed Sheeran belt out popular pop, acoustic and folk numbers to crowds that had travelled pan India to witness him live.
The Boyzlife show has already been performed for over 20,000 adoring fans since the pair came together in 2016, and this was their debut performance in India. With Westlife, Brian McFadden enjoyed 12 UK and Ireland number 1 hits whilst with Boyzone’s Keith Duffy enjoyed similar success with five #1 albums that sold over 25 million copies worldwide.
Brian McFadden and Keith Duffy, Boyzlife stated, “As Boyzlife this was our first India tour and we were totally excited for it. But we did not except this small and inexpensive gig to be this AWESOME’.
Following that, the main event was on stage and the masses in attendance went overwrought. A trip back to the pop culture of the 90’s is the best one could describe the exhibition put up by the power pack duo. With other hit numbers performed, the crowd got a taste of the best of both the worlds. The audience, of every age present, had an evening full of melody, memories, love and excitement.
