Singapore: After performing in countries like the US and Canada, now Indian-music maestro A.R. Rahman is set to enthrall his fans in Singapore with his `Jai Ho` concert.

Organised by Marina Bay Sands with Base Entertainment here, the four-night gala will be held at the 2,155-seater Marina Bay Sands Grand Theater March 17-20 for which Rahman has teamed up with creative director Amy Tinkham, best known for stage collaborations with Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys and Mariah Carey.

"A.R. Rahman has proved to the world that the Indian entertainment industry has come of age when he took home Academy and Grammy awards. We are proud to deliver what we promised the world, and that is that Marina Bay Sands will be a world-class entertainment destination bringing nothing but the best," Thomas Arasi, Marina Bay Sands president and chief executive officer, said in a statement.

Ticket prices for the event are Singapore dollars 2,600 for 4 seats IN VIP Box; 375 for Jai Ho Seats; 265 for A Reserve; 195 for B Reserve; 145 for C Reserve and 95 for D Reserve.

Called the `A.R. Rahman Jai Ho Concert: The Journey Home World Tour`, it kicked off June 11 last year in New York and has since toured cities like Washington, Texas, Toronto, Johannesburg, Cape Town, London, Zurich and Paris.

The concert in Singapore will include songs from the multiple Oscar-award winning "Slumdog Millionaire" as well as from his Indian blockbusters like "Lagaan", "Jaane Tu...Ya Jaane Na", "Dil Se", "Rang De Basanti" and "Roja".
