TALENTED composer, musician, singer and record producer A.R. Rahman will perform in Leeds.

The Grammy and Academy Award-winning star will step on stage at the First Direct Arena on September 29 as part of his ‘Intimate’ UK tour, which includes a mix of eastern classical music, modern electro, world music and orchestral arrangements.

Mr Rahman said: “After the successful 18-date ‘Intimate’ tour in the US last year, we really wanted to bring it over to the UK.

“The show has all kinds of songs, some are Hindi, some Punjabi – there’s a lot of music to hear!”
