Nepathya set to embark on four-city-tour

KATHMANDU: Nepal's premier folk-rock band, Nepathya, is all set to embark on a four-city-tour within the country as part of its silver jubilee celebration, the band said.

Issuing a presse today, Nepathya said they will perform in Birtamode on November 20, Dharan on November 23, Butwal on November 26 before wrapping up the tour in Dhangadhi on November 29.

Nepathya concert in all cities will kick off sharp at 5:45 pm and last for 2 hours.

The venues in all four places will be local stadiums namely Domalal Rajbanshi Stadium in Birtamode, Dharan Stadium, Butwal Stadium (ANFA Technical Centre) and Dhangadi Stadium respectively.

“As we plan for a tour in Nepal, my mind travels back in time when we travelled across the country during conflict times. We used to travel surpassing all odds with the aim of spreading the message of peace,” recalls Nepathya front-man Amrit Gurung.

“Our shows used to be organised during the day due to security reasons. It is good to know we are now able to perform during evenings,” Gurung added.

The tour is coordinated by nepa~laya and will be hosted and locally organised by various organisations. Ticket for the show is priced at Rs 1000, according to the statement.

As usual, Amrit Gurung will be accompanied on stage by Dhruba Lama on drums, Suraj Thapa on keyboards, Subin Shakya on bass, Niraj Gurung on guitars, and Shanti Rayamajhi on madal.
