“This is an honor and a blessing,” he said, “and I can’t begin to put it into words. I’ve always wanted to come and perform in India and this is a full circle moment”

As the show ended on a note of triumph and with multiple encores on the Cardi B - A$AP Rocky starrer track ‘No Limit’, G-Eazy reminded the crowd how happy he is to be playing on this stage, and even went as far as to say, “This is the greatest day of my life.” as he exited the stage in his signature rock and roll fashion.

Karan Singh, CEO, Sunburn states, “The audience's incredible reactions in every city were truly remarkable. From the moment G-Eazy took the stage, the crowd was electrified, their enthusiasm was amazing in every cheer and dance move. It was inspiring to see such genuine excitement and energy from everyone in attendance, making the tour an unforgettable experience for both the artist and the fans alike."

The audience in the palm of his hand, G-Eazy surrendered to the beat jumping around the stage as a series of pyrotechnics and confetti rained down from the ceiling and the stage’s backdrop alighted with sparklers. It was a beautiful sight to behold and a movie-like ending for a wonderfully wild and entertaining night.
