Pink Floyd Tribute concert with unlimited beer and wine at Gateway Agra on 15th Dec. 2012
Agra, 15th Dec. 2012: The Gateway Hotels & Resorts, part of the Taj Group, are designed for the urban nomad and exemplify comfort, familiarity and flexibility when you travel. Gateway has always represented the spirit of freedom - of expression, of thought and from the mundane. In keeping with this philosophy, Gateway presents Revolutions – the Freedom Series, a movement that celebrates artists that have left an indelible mark on culture and changed the world around us through their contribution to the visual or performing arts and literature. Revolutions was kick-started at Sphyre Bar in Gateway Bangalore with a tribute concert to the original rebel without a cause, Bob Dylan in October, followed by a wine ‘n’ music festival with a Beatles Tribute concert at Gateway Nashik. Gateway now brings Revolutions as a ticketed event and festive package with a tribute concert to the legendary Pink Floyd at The Gateway Hotel Fatehabad Road Agra on 15th December 2012.
Booking the Gateway Revolutions Stay Package at www.thegatewayhotels.com or by calling the hotel on 91 562 660 2000 gets you access to the concert with unlimited beer and wine on Saturday, 15th December 2012, 20% off food and beverage at the Gateway All-day Diner and Jhankar, the specialty restaurant as well as breakfast the next morning. The concert is also available for non-resident guests as ticketed event at Rs. 1250, which can be bought at the hotel and on bookmyshow. In keeping with the theme of Facebook revolutions, Gateway has a host of interactive contests on social media where you can win merchandise and tickets to the event – so log on to thegatewayhotel on facebook and twitter, tweet-a-song to the band and participate in the Revolutions.
Commenting on Revolutions at Gateway Agra, Mr. P K Mohankumar, Chief Operating Officer of The Gateway Hotels & Resorts said, “The Gateway Hotels & Resorts in 21 cities and holiday destinations in South Asia offer a relaxed, refreshing and contemporary experience. Working round the clock and around guests’ schedules with a 24/7 attitude, the Gateway brand is about flexibility and freedom. Revolutions is a contemporary representation of this spirit of freedom that is reflected at Gateway in all its dimensions.”
Revolutions also marks the introduction to the city of Mr. Ahmar Siddiqui, General Manager, The Gateway Hotel Fatehabad Road Agra who added, “We are very proud that Revolutions is coming to Gateway Agra and looking forward to welcoming guests from Delhi, UP, Rajasthan and across the country for the concert. Set amidst six acres of landscaped gardens, Gateway Agra is a tranquil 100-room retreat and offers a magnificent view of The Taj Mahal from many rooms. Revolutions at Gateway Agra will include open bars from the likes of Nine Hills and Kingfisher and a premium selection with the best of Saqui Bar at Gateway Agra during the concert. This will also be an opportunity for many patrons to experience our specialty restaurant Jhankar, re-launched earlier this year with a revamped menu featuring an eclectic mix of authentic delicacies and culinary secrets from the royal kitchens of the Golden Triangle.”
Pink Floyd, having unprecedented success with their unique experimental style, philosophical lyrics and progressive psychedelic music, was a natural extension to the Revolutions series after Dylan and The Beatles, all artists with a strong anti-war sentiment, revolutionary in their music and influence. One of the most commercially successful and influential groups in popular music, a live performance tribute to Pink Floyd is always a promising affair, given their reputation for elaborate stage performances and recognition as pioneers of live music performance. Celebrated by Rolling Stone among the 100 Greatest Artists of All Time, the magazine wrote “experimenting with concept albums and pot-friendly studio effects and breaking free of conventional pop-song formats, Pink Floyd prefigured the progressive rock of the ‘70s and ambient music of the ‘80s”. Which is why, known for its devotion to music, liberal politics and popular culture, Rolling Stone India comes on board as the perfect partner for the event, organising the band Barefaced Liars and the event setup. All in all, Gateway Revolutions at Agra promises an electrifying experience and a trip well-worth making.
