Kolkata, Dec 18 (IBNS): Arijit Singh, the Bengal-born Bollywood singer is all set to rock Kolkata on Christmas eve with a grand performance, which will roll out his first musical tour of India.

Talking about his first cross country musical tour, Arijit Singh said, “I am extremely excited to begin my first integrated and exclusive India tour in Kolkata.

Be it introducing India to music television to creating the biggest ever music format shows such as MTV Unplugged, Coke Studio@MTV, MTV Spoken Word and many more. This is the one brand that not only understands music but is also the ultimate word on the youth and is always in tune with what they like. A multi-city concert with one of the most celebrated young singers of today, Arijit Singh ticks all the right boxes for us and who better than Wizcraft to execute such a fantastic initiative at such a grand scale. All I can say is, what you see is just the beginning of perhaps a new phenomenon where artist tours are concerned. Just remember MTV brought it to you first!”
