Irish pop sensation Ronan Keating performed in Bengaluru on 18 November. The singer-songwriter returned to the city after he last performed with his pop band Boyzone in 2005.
In an interaction with the media just hours before the concert, Keating shared that coming back to India has re-energised him.
“I have had a tough year as I lost my brother. I needed some healing, some time away from the madness. I found that healing in India. I have read, meditated, done yoga…There is a sense of calm here. That’s what I love about India,” Keating shared in a meet and greet held at ZLb23, The Leela Palace, Bengaluru.
An explorative trip
The musician, who came with his wife this time, made sure to explore India. The couple spent a few days in Ranthambore before his shows in Bengaluru and Mumbai.
“The last time I visited India, I couldn’t explore much. But that trip had a lasting impression on all of us,” he shared.
Expressing his wish to work with Indian artistes, Keating said he was ‘blown away’ by the talent that he saw in India and joked that he now knows where Beyonce got the ideas from.
“Indian artistes did it all– the costumes, the choreography– way before Beyonce did,” he quipped.
During the interaction, Keating got candid about his inspirations and why he needs to use his voice for a good cause.
