"I’m excited to finally get to play in India. I know my music has been heard and supported for many years, but until now it’s been impossible to get there. This will be a very special tour, I’m sure," Guetta said in a press statement.
The music artist will perform in New Delhi (March 9), Pune (March 10) and Bangalore (March 11).
With chart-topping hits like "When love takes over", ‘Gettin over you’ and ‘Sexy bitch’, Guetta is a hugely popular artist in Europe and America. He has five chart-topping albums to his name – "Just a Little More Love" (2002), "Guetta Blaster" (2004) "Pop Life" (2007), "One Love" (2009) and "Nothing But The Beat" (2011).
His latest album "Nothing But The Beat" features 17 guest artists like Snoop Dogg, Ludacris, Timbaland, Will.I.Am, Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, Usher, Chris Brown and Akon.
His show will be part of the second edition of the Eristoff Invasion tour. The first edition of Eristoff Invasion in January 2011 saw British electro-dance giants The Prodigy headline the festival, which travelled to Bangalore and New Delhi. In its second year, Eristoff Invasion adds Pune to its travel map.
"Eristoff has always been a highly evolved and edgy brand globally, and encouraged people to live life more instinctively. Eristoff Invasion provides the ideal environment for them to do just that, especially with David Guetta on stage," said Arvind Krishnan, director (Marketing), Bacardi India P.Ltd.
"After introducing The Prodigy here last year, we are very excited to now bring in David to India for the first time ever, and can promise the audiences across the three cities the most thrilling and memorable experience of their lives," added Krishnan.
The festival is organised by Only Much Louder in partnership with UKNY Music, a Britain-based music and events company.
