Indian Solo Star Sonu Nigaam To Perform At Wembley Arena Live

Sonu Nigaam has assured that this performance will going to be a biggest Bollywood concerts the UK has ever seen.

Sonu Nigaam while talking to a reporter said that "The last I came to the UK was for the legendary Rafi Resurrected tour, with the CBSO. People worldwide still talk about that one. But meanwhile my regular live performances have gone to another level! There has been some kind or renaissance! Wherever we have gone, it has been an opening of sorts for following artistes. We have been able to open dead sectors like Australia and New Zealand in the last five years for big tours now. Thus a UK concert is overdue"

Sonu will going to perform for an incredible 3 hours show he said that "For me live performance is a high that's incomparable to anything else musically. For me it’s a three hour-long orgasm - the foreplay being the preparation time for it! You have to be vocally, physically, mentally and spiritually fit and involved for a perfect one. That's the clear test of a true singer. Every other platform can be manipulated with, but not live shows. That's why I get so involved during my performances. And that's why perhaps, we are so loved by the audiences world wide."

Wembley Arena at the end of the ‘rainbow’

Wembley Stadium has become one of the most recognisable of London’s landmarks – or rather its arch has, stretching like a monochrome rainbow over the city’s northern suburbs. But up close, as many football fans know, the urban mish mash that surrounds it is less memorable. The walk from Wembley Central station along the high road is one where pound shops battle for business, moneylenders and pawnbrokers ply their trades and where on match days the pubs, curry houses and betting shops are packed full.
Francis Henry, managing director of Wembley based estate agent Daniels, says: “My office is on the high road and what I look is a run down area, poor people, high unemployment and sub standard living. There is a lot of social housing. There used to be stores here such as C&A and Marks and Spencer. Forty years ago, before the (shopping) centre at Brent Cross was built, it was like the West End. Rates were higher than Oxford Street.”
The new stadium, which opened after much delay in March 2007, was the catalyst for a transformation of the area, with 87 acres nearby being developed into a complex of hotels, flats, shops and restaurants. The entire enterprise has been branded Wembley City.
The local council, Brent, is behind the regeneration plans, along with Quintain Estates, which bought the land in 2003 when work on the stadium was beset by cash-flow problems, and consequently provided most of the financial muscle.
Quintain’s chief executive, Nick Shattock, says: “In 2002, the Greater London Authority’s London Plan, which outlines the strategy for building in the capital, anticipated there should be 146 new homes in the entire 1,000-acre Wembley area. We persuaded the GLA to create 5,000 houses.”
Planning permission was granted in 2003, the year the stadium was originally meant to open, and already the Wembley Arena concert venue has been refurbished at a cost of more than £35m. Another 40 buildings, including a boulevard of bars and restaurants, a 656 room Hilton hotel and a nine screen cinema complex, are on the way, as well as a designer outlet centre that will complement “anchor stores” such as Marks and Spencer. Work has started on a 600-unit block for student accommodation and twin 21-storey towers will stand along Empire Way.
James Saunders, managing director of commercial ventures at Quintain, says: “The old Wembley plc attracted 3.5m people to the stadium a year with 12m coming to the Arena. By broadening its appeal we anticipate 30m visitors a year with 1,000 living here by end of this summer.”
Quintain hold weekly meetings with Brent Council to ensure their aspirations dovetail. Prafula Shah, Brent’s marketing manager, says: “In Wembley City we have apartments in private gated developments which are ideal for young people and families and right on the doorstep of what is set to become a brand new buzzing London destination. In all, the council plans 6,500 new homes within the next 10 years. Wembley has also seen an £85m investment in public transport upgrades at its three train and Tube stations, making it the most connected urban area to central London.”
In a flurry of activity, the council has decided to build a new civic centre opposite the Arena with a community hall for up to 1,000 people, a library and a learning centre; it has approved the development of a shopping and residential block by Wembley Central station with 259 residential flats – 174 private and 85 affordable homes for key workers; a school on the high road is to be torn down and replaced with a 28 storey block with 448 flats, offices and a new school and sports centre.
Low-carbon specialists Zed Homes are to build a 17-storey hotel with 120 beds and 108 timeshares and both the Intercontinental hotel chain and Millennium Hotels have permission to build.
Quintain is undoubtedly in pole position in terms of residential development. Two blocks of flats have been completed. Forum House has 145 private homes with another 160 that are a mix of social and shared cost. Prices range from £217,500 for a one bedroom flat to £499,000 for two-bed duplexes of 1,071 sq ft. Next door, Quadrant Court, with 235 units of which 90 are private, has prices ranging from £175,000 for a 324 sq ft studio to £355,000 for a two-bed, two-bath flat of 753 sq ft.
An appearance by Take That at Wembley Arena in July 2009 was enough to persuade 33 year old management consultant Zoe Guilford to take the plunge. “There were about 80,000 fans trying to get home after the concert,” she says. “As I was stuck in traffic, I passed the new apartments near the stadium and thought how great it would be if I could just walk home right now and not have to drive. When I told my father he suggested looking into buying one as a sort of ‘social base’ – somewhere we could use after concerts and sports events.”
In the event Guilford decided to move to the Isle of Man but bought an apartment in Wembley’s Forum House as a buy-to-let, and reckons she is making a six per cent return on her investment.
Francis Henry of Daniels points to Wembley’s lively property scene, and the rental market in particular. “I was initially concerned that the slump would put an end to further development and there would just be the two new blocks of flats but now the funding has been agreed the place is a hive of activity.
“We thought that Quintain prices would provide a knock-on effect for us. If you are looking at a flat for £300,000 you might consider buying a freehold property for the same price. The new flats are already looking a bit tired so, although there might be a bit more work and maintenance with a house, you can earn a better rent out of it.”
Properties on Daniels’ books at the £300,000 mark include a three-bed, two-reception room town house with off-road parking for up to six cars which “would suit either a DIY enthusiast, builder/investor looking for a refurbishment project or as a buy-to-let.”
Henry echoes the universal lament of the estate agent: “We have buyers lining up but because the banks are reluctant to open the flood gates we have been doing a lot of renting. Prices of properties have dropped so much there is a bigger margin of profit to be made here with buy-to-let.”

Wembley Arena peace conference postponed

Wembley peace conference postponed after Dr Zakir Naik's ban indefinitely after the keynote speaker was banned from entering the UK.
The Al-Khair Peace Convention was due to take place at Wembley Arena tomorrow, with well-known Muslim cleric Dr Zakir Naik due to attend as the star guest.
However, Dr Naik has been banned from the country by Home Secretary Theresa May because of what she described as “unacceptable behaviour”.
The arranger, Croydon based charity the Al-Khair Foundation, has postponed the event as Dr Naik launches a legal challenge to Mrs May's decision.
The conference would have been the focus of a demonstration by the English Defence League (EDL), which claimed Dr Zakir was a “preacher of hate”, an accusation he has strenuously denied.
EDL demonstration threat as a result, Unite Against Fascism activists were planning a counter-demonstration against an organisation they accuse of having links to the British National Party and being supporters of racism and fascism.
However, since Dr Naik's ban, both protests have been relocated to Barking tomorrow.
The Al-Khair Foundation insists the conference will be re-arranged when Dr Naik can enter the country, and both UAF and EDL have indicated they may protest in Wembley if that happens.

In Wembley Arena Mystery over rumours of a right-wing protest

Mystery surrounds a rumour that a controversial organisation are to hold a protest in the borough next Saturday (26). According to anti fascism campaigners, the (EDL) English Defence League are planning to demonstrate outside Wembley Arena while a peace conference organised by Al Khair Foundation, a Muslim charity, takes place. But, the EDL are staying tight lipped over the claims and their website has no announcement. The EDL are a far right organisation who campaign against Islamism, Sharia law and Islamic extremism in England. Since they were established last year they have been involved in a number of protests that have culminated in clashes between its members and its critics. If a rally by EDF does go ahead, Brent and Harrow United Against Fascism (BHUAF) are planning a counter protest at the same time. The borough's 40 Labour councillors, the Bishop of Willesden and the President and Secretary of Brent Trades Union Council have come out in support of BHUAF's plans.Cllr Ann John, leader of Brent Council, said: "Brent is Britain's most diverse multi cultural and multi faith borough and our diversity is our strength. "The planned demonstration is a deliberate provocation aimed at creating fear amongst the Muslim community and undermining community relations."

Badminton England start preparations for World Championships after Wembley nod

Badminton England, the national governing body, will meet world badminton officials in the next three weeks to begin preparations for the World Championships after an agreement was reached last week to host the sport at Wembley Arena in 2012. The 2011 World Championships, to be held in August, will be a test event for the London 2012 Olympics and negotiations will take place with the Badminton World Federation to fathom expectations for the event.

Locog, London 2012's organisers, finally reached an agreement last week for badminton and rhythmic gymnastics to be staged at Wembley Arena after months of prolonged negotiations.

The sports had initially resisted the change to base them in north Greenwich, the original plan, due to the increased travel times from the Olympic Village to north London.

Adrian Christy, Badminton England's chief executive, said: "It has been well known for some time that there have been issues and we have been sympathetic to that with the economic climate in mind.

"The logistical problem has been how to transport the players in a sensible time. No one expected it to last this long but the complexity of the athletes hotel and the training facilities have been a factor."

Badminton's training facility will be at Redbridge Sports Centre in Barkingside, Essex and will herald the sport's Olympic legacy after the Games.

Redbridge is currently completing a £6.3 million redevelopment and the 12-court facility will also host the other competing teams as an Olympic training venue.

Ricky Gervais at Wembley Arena

Forget Cleggy and co for a second - it’s a big week for comedy. In Manchester - at the MEN Arena, where he once worked as a steward - Peter Kay is unveiling his first stand-up show in seven years. In London, Ricky Gervais is back at Wembley Arena . Politicians can but dream of holding rallies of this size, night after night.
It’s hard not to think about all the money flowing into the stars’ bank accounts without going green with envy. And yet one of the main reasons, surely, why people flock to gigs of this magnitude, is tobask in all that unobtainable affluence. There’s something so incongruous about a bloke standing on stage in front of thousands - a blurred speck were it not for the giant screens relaying every move -that the scale of the achievement is as much a part of the experience as the comedy. And few make more of this than Gervais.

The London leg of his Science tour finds the braggart creator of TheOffice and Extras etc, etc largely replicating the show he firstpresented in Edinburgh last August, with the odd tweak and insertion.
Once again, though, he appears content to coast on his reputation, andeven abuse the power that comes with celebrity, rather than push histalents in new directions.
Lookingly weirdly like George Michael, thanks to an unfetching moustache, and dosed up on pain-killers as a result of golfing-related back-strain, Gervais displays characteristic chutzpah by opening with a confession that he’s not bothered about playing Wembley: “I’ve got better things to do than this,” he says, eyeing his watch - this, we’re told, is “a warm-up for Madison Square Garden”.
I laughed at that, but we’re soon enough cast into the re-heated slurry of minor provocation and knowing obnoxiousness. There are over-generous helpings of material about fat people, rounded off with a bilious description of a Ken Dodd fan: “I’m trying to avoid saying 'fat mental bird’,” he tells us, all smirking disingenuousness.
There are playground barbs about Amanda Holden and Susan Boyle - who looks “like a mong” - and contemptuous reflections on repellent autograph-hunters. For the atheists, there’s a caustic deconstruction of a children’s picture-book about Noah. For the bawdy-minded, there are numerous knob-gags.
Gervais has a style that’s at once plaintive and relaxed, which works well, but the substance is missing. The woman in front of me spent the entire show with her head on her partner’s shoulder with a “wake me up when it’s over” look about her. At least she’ll be able to say she was there, though.

Wembley Stadium Twin Towers 'model' for 1.2 billion dollar Dallas Cowboys arena

Jerry Jones, whose Dallas Cowboys Stadium will host the World Boxing Organisation welterweight battle between Manny Pacquiao and Joshua Clottey here on Saturday night, revealed to The Daily Telegraph that aspects of the stadium were modelled on the design of Wembley Stadium.

“I visited Wembley three times while it was being built,” said Jones, who added that he had never contemplated buying an English Premiership club. Instead, he invested 1.2 billion US dollars to build a new Cowboys Stadium which is a breathtaking monolith to sporting indulgence.

Jones revealed to The Daily Telegraph: “Our plazas at either end sees around 60 per cent of our fans coming in, and the glass doors completely go away. It opens straight in, with huge alleyways of greenery. The idea of having people entering the stadium that way came from the train that stops at Wembley. We took that land, beachfront property and made it into an entrance like Wembley.”

John Mayer close to British breakthrough

Guitarist John Mayer is making belated progress in his bid to be known in this country beyond American expats and Heat readers more interested in which starlet he is currently squiring.
As he played a sizeable theatre show last night having just announced a May gig at Wembley Arena, the fact that the 32-year-old still shows no sign of having a hit over here is starting to seem less relevant.

"Thank you for robbing me of my freaky anonymity in the UK," he beamed to a crowd who seemed to know all the words. "We can mark off another country where I cannot visit adult bookstores."

What is it about Mayer's soulful contemporary rock that is taking so long to translate?
On recent fourth album Battle Studies he's not singing about baseball or fannypacks but about the joys of singledom (Perfectly Lonely) and marijuana (Who Says).
Singing with a slight Bryan Adams rasp that rose to a crisp falsetto during a surprise cover of the Jackson Five's I Want You Back, his own full back catalogue proved that delayed fame makes for a better setlist.

There was a shimmer worthy of U2's Edge on his guitar lines on Heartbreak Warfare, while he also handled loose funk on Vultures and acoustic pop on early track Why Georgia.
The solos rained down as the night wore on, especially during an epic Gravity.
Mayer displayed an affinity with his instrument that made it clear why he counts Eric Clapton among his jamming buddies.

But despite an armful of tattoos that hinted at a rock 'n' roll heart, he never really let himself go.
With boy band looks and real technical ability, on paper and over the pond Mayer has got it all.
It seems Britain is coming closer to deciding that we want it too.
