'We will end the celebrations with that mega concert, and we will launch (our own) merchandise'
Miles, one of Bangladesh’s most popular rock bands, is celebrating 40 years in the music business this year.
The band has come a long way and on touching the milestone, the band members are getting ready to celebrate their accomplishments in a grand way – starting with a US tour.
Recently, the band signed a deal with Windmill Advertising Ltd for celebrating its 40th anniversary.
Talking about the celebration plans, Shafin Ahmed, vocalist and bassist of the band, said: “As we mentioned before we are starting the 40-year celebrations with consecutive concert tours, which will begin in the USA, then Canada, and Australia- if everything goes according to plan.
“Afterwards, when we come back to Bangladesh, celebrations will begin from November since that is a good season for outdoor shows.
“By the end of the year we will organize multiple events nationwide and full details will be revealed at a press conference in June.
“There will be a few live events outside Dhaka, and a grand concert in the capital with lots of surprises.
“We will end the celebrations with that mega concert, and we will launch (our own) merchandise.”
