In 2004, Shah Rukh Khan took his Temptation concert tour to the United States and Europe. Performing songs and dance numbers with Arjun Rampal, Priyanka Chopra and other Bollywood stars, this popular concert series evolved into Temptation Reloaded which traveled throughout Europe, Australia and Asia.
Shah Rukh Khan had wanted to do another concert tour, but it was difficult to determine which colleagues would be available for such an event and time commitment.
Ten year later, Shah Rukh Khan is returning to the United States with SLAM The Tour and an all-star cast pulled together by Farah Khan, the director of the upcoming film Happy New Year. The film features some of the biggest Bollywood stars, including Shah Rukh Khan, Deepika Padukone, Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, Sonu Sood, and Vivaan Shah.
Having spent the better part of a year together on Happy New Year - a film that featured characters working together as a team to pull off both a dance competition and a heist - the performers realized the cast and crew had worked so well together they could take their performance on the road and just add a few additional acts.
The performers began the tour on Friday, September 19 in Houston, Texas. On September 20 and 21, we attended the shows in New Jersey and Washington, DC and shared photos and a blog post about the event. We will update the following Storify collection of tweets, photos, videos, and stories about SLAM The Tour as it continues to unfold.
