“I’ve been wanting to return to North America to perform for a while now, and I’m excited to be coming back for a series of concerts this spring,” Rahman said in a statement. “These are going to be very special performances and I’m grateful to have the chance to share them with you.”

With more than 20 years of experience under his belt, Rahman has produced some of India’s finest musical albums from 1990s classics such as the “Roja,” “Dil Se”  and “Taal” to more recent soundtracks including “Jodhaa Akbar,” “Rockstar” and “Highway.” Outside of Bollywood, Rahman has made an incredible impression with his work on the “Slumdog Millionaire,” “Million Dollar Arm” and “The Hundred-Foot Journey” soundtracks. He is currently busy working on the soundtrack for the 2015 Hollywood film “Pele,” a biopic that chronicles the life of one of Brazil’s most legendary soccer players.

Rahman’s “Intimate Concert Tour” will be kicking off in May and its stops include Huntington and New York City, New York; Newark, New Jersey; San Jose, California; Las Vegas, Nevada; Chicago, Illinois; and Toronto, Ontario. Rahman himself has said that this series of concerts will be comprised of “very special performances” and will feature a wide range of some of his greatest hits.
