The HBL PSL 2018 Artist Press Conference, held last evening at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, generated a frenzy of excitement about everything and everyone coming together for the third edition of the tournament, which kick-starts with the match between defending champions, Peshawar Zalmis, and sixth new team, the Multan Sultans tonight.
“Ali will fly in the air and his music will fly in the stadium and across the stadium into the world,” Chairman PCB Najam Sethi said, without giving too much away. We know that Ali Zafar will be performing but we just found out that his performance will be bigger and beyond anything that we could have imagined. He will fly around the stadium in some gravity-defying stunts.
PSL now has a three-year tradition of introducing one international artist to the lineup at the opening ceremony and after Sean Paul (2016) and Shaggy (2017) this year that artist is Jason Derulo, who’s definitely a worldwide sensation. We don’t know what he’ll be performing since he hadn’t arrived by the time of the press con, but we do know that he will perform his hit songs and they’ll be enough to make everyone go wild.
Shahzad Roy, of course, will be performing at the ceremony tonight. And the event will be conducted by Hareem Farooq and Bilal Ashraf.
