“Just flew over Everest into Katmandu, Nepal. We are the 1st western band to play here. With all the music in the world how is that possible?”
This tweet comes from Bryan Adams after an hour he has landed at TIA in Kathmandu. Amid a huge security, Bryan Adams was taken to the Soaltee Crowne Plaza hotel in Kathmandu from where he will soon be arriving at Dashrath Rangashala to perform for the first international concert in Nepal. We all Nepali’s are as proud of him as he is for Visiting Nepal. All I want to say on this big day “Namaste Bryan Adams, Welcome to Nepal!”
Here are some of his arrival photos that he retweets from twitter. (Thanks Twitter, it has been a great medium both for Byran Adams and fans like us to exchange our feelings.)
Being a passionate photographer, Bryan Adams takes photo as soon as he lands at TIA. He also tweetpics the photo (see below)
