SYDNEY SHOW WRAPS NEPATHYA AUSTRALIA TOUR
Nepathya has returned home after completing its 4 city Australia Tour. They performed to record audiences in all 4 places: Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.
Sydney concert was organised in a very prestigious Sydney Town Hall situated in central Sydney. “Sydney Town hall is a prize heritage possession for Sydney town Council, it has been a dream come true for many Nepalese like me in Sydney to see our favourite band perform here.” Said Mukti Rokka.
Along with Mukti, two thousand people had stormed into Sydney Town Hall to witness the Nepathya experience. “This has been a historic show for Nepali Music.’ Said Kiran Krishna Shrestha of nepa~laya, the management company of Nepathya. “From what I have seen so far while travelling with Nepathay for the past decade, and what I have heard about Nepali shows that happen abroad, this has by far been the best solo concert ever for Nepali music.” He added.
Knowing the concert had been sold out two days before the show, many people still took chances and came to the venue on the concert day. With 2000 ticket holders and more than 500 who came without tickets, the traffic light next to the Sydney Town Hall got disrupted for sometime. People who had bought tickets in advance made their way into the hall while those without tickets had no chances due to heavy security presence at the venue. “We never realised a Nepali show would be sold out and we would have to return from the gate,” commented a Nepali student while leaving the gate. “This is the first time something like this has happened here.”
For people who could make it to the show, it was a mesmerising experience. The venue, the atmosphere and the performances all contributed in making this the best Nepali show in Australia so far. Martyne Ives a TV show producer based in Sydney who was among few westerners in the audience commented, “We had a great time. The band went down a storm, it was crazy.’
“We had expected around thirteen to fifteen hundred people but never thought we would get such overwhelming response.” Said Dhiraj Malla of Myagdi Sewa Saimit, the organisers of the show. “We did our part in coordinating and managing things here, but the credit goes to the Band and its credibility.” He added.
“Nepathya has proved Nepali music is capable for shows of international class, and Sydney show has proved the audience is ready. We now need more performers and organisers to maintain the benchmark created by Nepathya at the Sydney Town Hall.” Said Kiran Shrestha.
