Gangtok, Nov. 1: Indian Idol Prashant Tamang will perform at Palzor Stadium on November 5, forcing the first semi-final of the All India Governor's Gold Cup to be postponed by a day.
At the programme, Sikkim chief minister Pawan Chamling will release Prashant's first music album. Chamling had earlier given a big boost to the Darjeeling boy's chances of winning Indian Idol 3 when he had spoken out in his support.
Sony Entertainment is going to release 30,000 CDs of Prashant's songs and will keep the proceeds of 20,000 CDs, each priced at Rs 150. The remaining 10,000 will be given to the local organisers, who will use the proceeds to pay off their BSNL telephone bills, which ran into lakhs when they had voted en-masse for Prashant to help him win the talent hunt contest.
"We still owe BSNL around Rs 15 lakh," said C.M. Khatiwada, an executive member of the Central Reception Committee for Prashant.
People who want to watch Prashant perform live will have to buy a coupon worth Rs 150, the organisers said, which will get them the CD as well. Apart from Prashant, Idol-contestant Charu Semwal will also be present.
While the news of Prashant's visit will bring cheer to music-lovers here, members of the Sikkim Football Association (SFA) are worried about the potential financial repercussions of hosting two semi-finals on the same day (November 6).
According to SFA sources, this would mean a loss of around Rs 7 lakh from gate receipts alone.
"We are not against the show and will extend full support to the organisers, but it means we will be suffering considerable losses," said SFA president Tempo Bhutia.
Efforts to postpone the Prashant show had failed because Chamling will be unavailable after November 5.
