 During his “Dil-Luminati Tour” in North America, Diljit Dosanjh created history by selling out the “biggest ever Punjabi show outside of India”. In front of more than 50,000 spectators at the BC Place stadium in Vancouver, Canada, on the opening night of his tour, Dosanjh sang hits like “5 Taara,” “Lover,” “GOAT,” “Kinni Kinni,” and “Ishq Mitaye,” the hit song from his most recent film “Amar Singh Chamkila.”

About The Show

With excitement building in the air, Dosanjh put on a powerful, electrifying show full of charisma and undeniable star power that easily captivated the record-breaking crowd. It wasn’t ashamed to celebrate Punjabi music and culture. An excited crowd of people of all ages stood in long, rainy lines for hours to see Dosanjh take the stage. 

In the end, the artist has a strong bond with Vancouver. Many of his big hits in Punjabi, like Jatt and Juliet and Honsla Rakh, were filmed in and around Greater Vancouver. This makes the moment even more special for his fans, who have followed him for a long time, even before his recent international successes. Many people felt like they were at a reunion at the show; they stopped to hug old friends and family all over the venue.

When she got the chance, the singer broke into Bhangra while confetti fell around her. The crowd cheered for him and joined in, and his picture was shown on two big screens, one on either side of him. During the whole show, local bhangra dancers stood behind him.
