Music maestro Ilayaraja will be performing LIVE in Chennai on December 28, 2011. After almost 6 years, the maestro will be performing again at the Nehru Indoor Stadium, Chennai. The last time he performed, tickets were completely sold out. Incidentally, Jaya TV which broadcasted the previous event, will be hosting it again.
Legendary Ilayaraja has composed over 4500 songs and has provided the scores for over 950 movie albums. A veteran in the film and music industry for over 30 years, Ilayaraja is one of the world's top selling artists. A recipient of the prestigious Padma Bhushan, Ilayaraja has won 4 National Film Awards. His last major performance, in Chennai, is noted for a song which he played with just 3 notes – Sa Re Ga. After October 16, 2005 , this will be Ilayaraja's first major concert. This time Ilayaraja has given an opportunity for his fans to send their list of top 10 favorite songs which they want to see Ilayaraja perform live. This is a difficult task in itself, considering the his vast collection of great songs. Great singers like S.P. Balasubramaniam, Hariharan, Chitra, Susheela, Yesudas, Karthik, Sadhana Sargam, Haricharan etc will be on the stage with Ilayaraja.
