One of Pakistan’s best live pop-rock band MIRAGE, comprising of Saad Hayat, Rehan Nazim, Hasan Mahmud, Ajay Harri, Shane Kerr and Abid Wilson, concluded their Winter Madness Live Tour with a powerhouse live performance in Lahore at an event hosted by Origami and Lotus PR at Peeru’s Café.
MIRAGE performed three back to back live concerts in Azad Kashmir on 13th December at an event managed by Oktopus Media, in Islamabad on 14th December at Face Pakistan and in Lahore in 15th December 2018 at an event by Origami and Lotus PR at Peeru’s Café in collaboration with Radio1FM91, TVOne and NewsOne.
The band, which is credited as the best live act from Karachi and one of the best from across Pakistan, performed over 80 songs for almost 9 hours during their Winter Madness Tour. The highlight of the tour was performing their original upcoming track, Befiker, to much acclaim from the audiences in attendance.
MIRAGE performed their signature live renditions and medleys of popular artists such as Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, U2, A.R. Rahman, Junoon, Backstreet Boys, Bruno Mars, Sajjad Ali, Jason Mraz, The Police, Kishore Kumar, Strings and Noori to name a few.
In January 2019, MIRAGE is all set to introduce a brand new sound with the release its single Befiker from their second album, ‘Doosri Dastak’. The video has been shot at the Lyari Town in Karachi.
MIRAGE had earlier released ‘Barhe Chalo’ and ‘Panchi’ featuring Coke Studio sensation Alycia Dias in 2017, ‘Pyar Hua’ in December 2016, Ker Daalo Pakistan in 2014 and Zara Suniye Tou in 2013 from their second album ‘Doosri Dastak’.
MIRAGE, formed by Saad Hayat on Keyboards & Production, Hasan Mahmud on guitars and Rehan Nazim on vocals in 2003, has been active in the local music scene and has maintained a reputation for its solid, fun & energetic live act. The band’s current live line-up also features Abid Wilson on guitars, Shane Kerr on bass & Ajay Harri on Drums.
Indeed, with 8 music videos (Aarzoo, Jeewan, Kyun Mujhse, Zara Suniye Tou, Ker Daalo Pakistan, Pyar Hua and Panchi) and an album (Aarzoo) release to date, MIRAGE is one the few bands that has been intact and has also managed to survive the long lasting music industry downfall.
