New York: The world-famous German band Scorpions intoxicated the local and foreign audience at the Golden Jubilee Bangladesh Concert held at the historic Madison Square Garden in New York, USA. According to him, the notes of Bangladesh could not satisfy the expatriate Bangladeshi listeners. This news was reported by the American media Bangla Press.
Junaid Ahmed Palak, Minister of State for Information and Communication Technology, addressed the opening ceremony of the Golden Jubilee Bangladesh Concert on Friday (May 7). His entire speech was in English. Afterwards, renowned Rabindra Sangeet artist Kaderi Kibria along with the ministers and MPs present on the occasion stood on the stage and performed the national anthem. The 20,769-seat auditorium in Madison Square Garden was packed to the rafters. Most of them were foreign visitors, especially Europeans. They came to listen to the songs of the world famous German band Scorpions.
The Scorpions band’s massive campaign across the United States attracted a large number of foreign visitors.
Fans of the Scorpions in the United States sell the new slogan Tickets to See the ‘No One Like You’ Rockers Live and Available Everywhere Tickets and Sold Tickets where tickets for ‘Live No One Like You’ rockers are available. Foreigners buy tickets from the websites of NJ.com, Stabhav, Ticketmaster, SeatGreek, Ticket City and Mega Seats. The expatriate Bangladeshis and the audience did not know that tickets were available on these websites. One week before the event, the expatriates came to know that the ticket is available only on ‘ticketmaster’.
The reason for the large number of spectators at the Golden Jubilee Bangladesh concert is the ICT Ministry of the organizing government. They did not have much publicity. The local event management organization called Mainstream Media did not disclose the details of the event. Out of the 15 weekly newspapers published from New York, only 4/5 of the newspapers published advertisements of Daisara Goche. These advertisements do not mention the schedule of the concert, ticket price, where to get the ticket, who can be contacted if necessary. It’s just a propaganda campaign. The ads did not mention the address of Madison Square Garden.
The time limit for the Bangladesh Band Band was only 30 minutes. The artists were just in a hurry. As a result, almost every song is sung permanently and one by one. He did not sing any song related to the liberation war. Although two patriotic songs were performed, the audience commented that the singer was not very good. Sharmin Sultana Sumi, the vocalist in the notes, spoke more in English than in performing the song, causing annoyance among the listeners. He sings in Bengali and speaks in English, which the listeners could not easily accept.
Among the expatriates in the United States, it has been reported that heroic freedom fighters, eminent personalities, established writers and journalists have got the opportunity to enter the auditorium free of cost. However, the leaders and workers of Awami League did not get any free ticket. For this reason, many have expressed intense anger.
After the program, US Awami League leader Hindal Qadir Bappa wrote on his Facebook status:
He further writes that the 71st Independence Struggle is going on. After 51 years of independence, the Golden Jubilee Bangladesh Concert was held today, May 8, at Medicine Square Garden, New York, to commemorate those emotional moments. Organized by the Ministry of Information Technology, Government of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh. Leaders and activists of the United States Awami League spent several days trying to find the organizers. I moved at the request of the leaders and workers. Three / four days ago, the Consul General was informed by a call, said. Mr. Siddique and Mr. Samad have been given the responsibility. Since he had just joined the Consul’s office, Mr. Siddique was presided over by another person in the presence of Mr. Siddique in the presence of Mr. Siddique’s Almanama i.e. No More Siddique. Could be described. Honorable Kassul Sahib, sincerely requested to send the list and a list of about 70/80 people was sent through Dr. Masood Sahib. I also gave tickets to 4 members of my family, and all of them were dropped. I lost to Vivek, so I gifted 4 tickets to former student leader Masud Mollah. My two daughters are upset, but I have nothing to do. It is against my policy to enjoy a concert in the Garden of Medicine Square, leaving out hundreds of Awami League leaders and activists. Many more like this have made dozens of negative comments on Facebook status. But I have nothing to do.
