Chirkutt band performs at Madison Square Garden

News desk: The Golden Jubilee Bangladesh Concert began at 8:00 pm USA time at Madison Square Garden, New York, USA on Friday.

Folk fusion band Chirkutt have created history by performing alongside Scorpions at one of the world's most famous venues, Madison Square Garden in New York.

The event, titled "Let the Music Speak", was arranged in honour of Bangladesh's golden jubilee, arranged by Mainspring Limited and the ICT Division of the Ministry of Information and Technology, Government of Bangladesh.

In a post by the band's official page, they were seen posing for a picture with Scorpions, having given them custom rickshaw-painted sunglasses as gifts.

Chirkutt was also seen posing on Times Square, where the poster for the concert showed up on a billboard. "It is truly an honour for us to perform at this historic venue, alongside a legendary band older than Bangladesh itself!" the band had said in an interview with media, before leaving for NY.

MSG is the same venue where Pandit Ravi Shankar, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Billy Preston, Leon Russell, Ringo Starr, and Joan Baez performed to 40,000 audience members to raise funds for Bangladesh on 1971.
