It promises to be a riot of colour, gloss and glamour, with power-packed performances with over 40 artists, elaborately choreographed dance routines, live singing, stunning retro costumes, innovative production design, aerial acts and a musical score that sees all the classic songs of Bappi da recreated with a brand new sound. The disco era of ’80s will come alive in an exhilarating live two-hour act on stage.
