‘November Rain II’ at ICCB Saturday

November Rain Volume 2’, a concert, will be held at the International Convention City Bashundhara (ICCB) Expo Zone in the capital on Saturday.

Brandmyth Experiential, an event management organistion, is hosting the early winter concert for the rock music lovers. 

The concert, scheduled to groove the rock music fans on November 12, is showcasing an ensemble line-up of 10 esteemed bands in the country: Aurthohin, Artcell, Black, Cryptic Fate, Viking, Chirkutt, Indalo, Meghdol, Ashes and Powersurge, reports UNB.

A press conference was held in the capital’s Kawran Bazar area on Tuesday, where the organisers briefed the journalists on the

event details.

“The maiden edition of our ‘November Rain’ concert series, which featured some of the biggest artistes in the nation, was held on the same date the previous year. We have then successfully organised the 25th anniversary concert of the popular band Shironamhin with overwhelmingly positive reception, and now we’re ready to entertain band music fans with the ‘November Rain Volume 2’ this coming Saturday,” the organisers said at the press conference.

It was announced that the Artcell, Black, Cryptic Fate – collectively known as the 'ABC' generation during the golden era of these popular bands between 2000 and 2010 - will once again enthrall their fans on November Rain Volume 2, with some exclusive collaborative performances, including a special song titled ‘Ashirbad.’

Meghdol vocalist Shibu Kumer Shill praised the initiative behind the event, saying, “Our generation has huge expectations for these types of concerts. The band music scene in Bangladesh experienced a severe loss because of the Covid-19 pandemic, and this type of mega concerts can benefit the bands and the artists.”

Brandmyth mentioned that unlike the previous edition of ‘November Rain,’ this year the concert will be an open-air concert to entertain more audiences. The venue has been divided into two separate zones - Myth Zone and Rockers Zone, and two tiers of tickets, worth 1050 tk and 550 tk, are available for the concert at the website.

The venue will be welcoming the concert-goers from 1:00pm, according to the organisers.
