I admire his music, and while I don't disagree with many of the criticisms made by other members, I do dislike the TMK vehement attack mode that can easily erupt here.

Having said that, the film star type advertising seems more than a bit strange. It certainly doesn't attract me to the event.

I am glad on one thing , that he has changed his mind that he will perform in season breaking his long fast.As Nick said if you open The Hindu , the repeated advertisement stating if you come with this ad cutout you will get FREE TICKETS for the first 80 . There will be say 800 who will come to get the 80 OC tickets, in that remaining 720 some will decide to buy a ticket as they have already come.

All said nice of TMK to perform in the season . Some time 2 or 3 years back he had a series of concerts from Jan ist week that is also season for me. I dont know yet if he has some concerts lined up from jan 1st. There is a parallel visaka Hari @ Academy(there is one part of CM world which thinks visakahari harikatha and usual concerts are all CM), [email protected] Thamizh ISai Parrys ..There is also few artists @MFAC and @Partha (these two may not dent that much as they are right now in a different waning popularity trajectory). Both VisakaHari and Sanjay and another bunch of youngsters will eat some crowd of TMK for sure . In The Hindu even today day of concert, the accompanist names are not stated. I am assuming RKSK and ArunPrakash will be likely two coartists.

Of course at near same time we have a maduraveena by [email protected] series . On behalf of Kamalamba I am announcing you can bring the paper cutout of the whole Hindu page 4 and attend all 4 concerts @ alwarpet for free with possible free snacks.

Venkata subba rao hall is the best hall for chennai even better than academy and Ngs, but why the concert start is @ 7pm. All said best wishes for TMK concert.

He'll be performing with Dr. R Hemalatha, Delhi Sairam, Praveen Sparsh and BS Purushotham according to details posted on his website. A bit odd there are two mridangists listed.

Twin Mridangam occasionally tries to be a thing. Don't see the point, personally. It might work if the two have such different styles that they sound like different instruments.

Anyway, both are very talented: I'm sure they'll work something out.

Reason for two mridangams: He sang a couple of pieces at the end of the concert along with Chennai children's choir. They sang two thillanas simultaneously.
