Reynolds, who waved the Tricolour as the crowd grooved through the band’s 90-minute performance, said “this is the first of many more shows to come in India”.

Saba Azad took to the stage as part of Madboy Mink, while Indie pop band Japanese Breakfast led by musician Michelle Zauner also performed.

Indo-Canadian Punjabi singer AP Dhillon sang his hits like Wo Noor, Toxic, Brown Munde, leaving the audience in raptures, the loudest applause coming in for ‘Tareef’, during which he strummed the guitar as well.


“This is why we make music, it brings us together,” Dhillon said amid his stage performance.
