Millennium Masti 2000

London: The show was opened by Maliaka with some dance performance then came Saif (he was looking great), then came Sonali, Raveena and Bobby. After their performance was over a video on Salman Khan was shown on the screen and then THE MAN himself wearing an all white came on the stage and danced to his hit songs, I had a ticket of 20 pounds, when I saw salman I ran and jumped to the 35 pounds stand hiding from the security that was all White and stunned to see the King Of Bollyood perform. I jumped down to the VIP area, and guess what i was stading just 3 feets from the stage and Salman Khan dancing so near me, the best part of all this was that I was the only Male among all girls dancing in the VIP area, I felt really ashamed when he danced on the song "Mujh Se Shadi Karo Ge".

Houston: Well I live in houston and I went to the show at the TSU arena for my birthday ,man, lemme tell you it was the greatest. I got to meet Salman at his hotel room he was really nice and I even got a picture with him but man his body guard was kinda big he scared me a little. The show was off tha hook Salman was great and damn baby's got a back and he can shake it very nicely might I add. Saif was so adorable. The dancers looked good too. I took a ton a ton of pictures i had 6th row center seats so they were good pictures. I promise you I will never forget this birthday . When I'm sad, I'm like oh well look at the brigt side I got to meet salman and I have a picture with him and I actually touched him haha=)

*******

Dallas: Well I saw the Millenium Masti 2000 concert in Dallas...(even though i actually live in Tennessee.. but unfortunately not a lot of concerts come to my city... so i had to do a bit of traveling) let me tell u, it was worth it. The concert started off great.. but it seemed incomplete until Salman came out... and when he did it was awesome!! He is as FINE in reality as he is on screen... it is really amazing.. His performance was great. Unfortunately i did not get to go backstage and meet him. This was very disappointing for me since i am his NO 1 fan. But i am hoping that next time he comes i will have connections to get back stage and meet him in person!!

New York: I was waiting for the concert for 2 months and finally the day came. IT was held a Nassau Coliseum and the stadium was huge but thank god my seats weren't too far from the stage. The Concert was good and everyone did a good job but they really saved the best for last....the lights went off and than u see a guy in all white with sunglasses ..you hear thousands of boys and girls screaming ..more girls than boys .....signs everywhere and it was the one and only SALMAN KHAN!! damn this guy knows how to shake his ass....every song, he did a awesome job...there's no difference between the Salman on screen and off screen...in my opinion Hrithik has a long way to go to meet Salman's level.. can't wait for him to come again.. Salman we luv you here in NYC

*******

Atlanta: I am from Birmingham, Alabama. Its a very small indian community city, so we don't get concerts and stuff here, so we went to Atlanta on May 5th, 2000. It was an awesome show. It started with Malaika. Then she took the host position. She started to introduced Sonali Bendre, Saif Ali Khan, Raveena Tondon, Bobby Deol, and finally the main attration of the Show the king of all the girls............Salman Khan!!! They showed a little video about him before he came to stage. I thought it was so cool. He came on the stage with "hello brother" song. He was wearing white pants, shirt, and a white jacket. He was looking so cool. He had a small beard on his chean. He was looking sooooooooooo good. I just loved watching him. I like Sonali Bendre and Salman Khan in the entire show. The show is worth watching it!!!

*******

Washington: The Millenium Masti 2000 in Washington D.C. was AWSOME! This was my first concert and it was spectacular. The show started with Malaika introducing everyone. Then she did Chaiya Chaiya and one other song. Sonali Bendre came out and did her songs from Hun Saath-Saath Hai. Then came Saif Ali Khan and Raveena Tondon and then Bobby Deol. Then came the handsomest of them all and the most talented....Salman Khan. They showed a little video about him which was so cool! He started with Hello Brother and then did Jab Pyar Kise se Hota Hai. He left then came out again and danced with Sonali Bendre. They did Dulhan Hym Le Jayenge, Chal Pyar Karegi, Munda Kamaal Hai and other songs that were really good. He lifted Sonali Bendre and took her off the stage and them he came back. He sang a song himself from one of his forthcoming movies. I think it was Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega. Then He brought 2 small kids and talked to them which was the CUTEST!!!! The other actors/actresses came then Salman KHan ended the show with a awsome dance! He took off shirt which was the best part. He is soo handsome. I didn't get to go backstage but one of my friends said he is sooo nice and really funny. My dream is to meet him some day!

Toronto: The Millennium Masti 2000 took its time winding through the USA and Canada to find it's way to Toronto. And it received an overwhelming reception when it opened at the Maple Leaf Gardens on April 23. The crowds ebbed and flowed, thick with fans eager to catch a glimpse of the six stars over from Bollywood, no matter that it was Easter.
The big draw sextet consisted of Salman Khan, Raveena Tandon, Sonali Bendre, Bobby Deol, Saif Ali Khan and Malaika Arora. The troupe is part of the concert touring 17 locations in four countries, USA, Canada, Spain and Great Britain.
"I've driven a few hundred miles for the show," averred Ritu Singh of Ottawa, who came to Toronto especially to see Bobby Deol. And she wasn't disappointed.
"He's definitely the cutest and coolest guy around... I just can't wait to see him shake a leg on stage," she said.
Fans held up posters and banners of the stars they were rooting for. And the Gardens, favourite venue for ice hockey games in Toronto, resounded to a roar of a different kind of crowd altogether.
Salman Khan won the popularity contest hands down. One poster read, "We Love You, Salman" and another said, "Toronto Welcomes the King of Khans." There was a solitary jean-clad teenager flashing a big colourful poster of the "Chotte nawab". Saif Ali Khan had at least one supporter.
Though the tickets were cut into the pocket at CA $ 100, 50 and 25 each, the audiences paid up all right. This wasn't the day to complain really. Latecomers scampering into the Gardens came upon the "House Full" board and returned home dolefully.
'Millennium Masti 2000' was promoted by Farath Hussain and organized by the Morani brothers of Bombay and Bunty Surma in collaboration with local Toronto business magnate Nav Bhatia and Esquire Promotions Inc.
The show was preceded by a fashion show, with hip-swinging models displaying the latest fashions and designs -- from Bombay.
But the audiences were chanting, "Salman, Salman," even before the show began. He stole the thunder with solo dance numbers from films like Dulhan Hum Le Jayenge, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and Biwi No.1.
The stars' performances were interspersed with playback singing by new and upcoming singers. Many were disappointed when Malaika Arora preferred to compere the show instead of swinging to the beats of Chaiyyan Chaiyyan. Her vivid description of the stars, however, kept the audiences happy.
The musical song-dance show opened with hit songs of 1999 and 2000. 'Chotte nawab' breezed in from backstage with wife Amrita and the audiences weren't humoured when he came onstage and referred to Toronto as Vancouver. But they soon forgave the faux pas when he charmed them with his unique wit and suave manners.
He endeared the crowd when invited a Toronto girl to dance with him to the beats of Ole Ole; he had them eating from his hand whein he later invited a Sikh to do a bhangra number.
Bobby, new to the game of stage shows, kept in sync with other dancers. His ready smile and good looks won the girls over. Performing in front of a live audience for the first time didn't faze the young Deol who set the stage afire with dances from his recent films, Dillagi and Badal.
And Jugni jugni and Main jat yamla Punjabi, Punjaban meri hole had the audience in a frenzy. He completed the act by dancing like his dad Dharmendra to the seventies' hit song Main Jat Yamala Pagla Deewana. "It's him that's the asli Punjab da putar, not me," Bobby told the audience shyly.
If the guys were a hit, the women received all the attention and some from the males.
Raveena and Sonali took the stage by storm, dancing to numbers from films like Bade Miyan Chhote Miyan, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam, Taal and Hum Saath Saath Hain.
The grand finale included duets performed by star couples on stage.
"I wouldn't miss this show for the world. Seeing them in flesh and blood is a different experience altogether," said Mohnish Bagga of Toronto. Bagga had booked the tickets well in advance so that he could see Sonali, whom he referred to as "the girl of my dreams".
While many returned with a smug paisa vasool look writ large on their faces, others, not yet satisfied, trailed the stars to their hotel.
"Fans were waiting for stars to show up till the wee hours of the morning," said a guard who is part of security arrangement at the Ramada Inn hotel, where the stars had been put up.

Chicago: Me and a couple of my friends just went to Salman's concert in Chicago and I love him and I was going crazy but the best part was when I went to stand in front of the stage and he pointed to me and said "Hey Sweetheart"! I almost died!! But he is really sweet. I met him after the show, and all the bad things people say about him aren't true! He was very nice and my fav. part of the concert was when I caught the last shirt that he trew out and kissed!!

*******

Miami: The Concert was great! It started off good... but we knew that the main attraction was gonna come in the end....and of course when it did ..it came with a bang..haha.. everyone performed good...saif started..and also was the first one to take of his shirt ...don't ask me why..then came the actresses who were also good and than came bobby..and then finally the lights went off..and they had this screen with little bits of Salman...which i think they did a good job and then Came Salman..he started off with Hello Brother..and it was amazing..
The guy looks excactly the same as he does on the screen... I have seen all his performances and before i had seen all the other khans and honestly he's the best. Before his second and third performance, me and my cuzin went backstage and got a chance to meet him and his brother..we also met Saif, Bobby and Raveena and the nicest out of all them was Salman..i had read so much about him that he's realy rude..he thinks he's all that..but after i met him i dont belive in the media no more, he was very nice and very good looking...just little short but very good looking. It was a concert that i will never forget.
some info...Salman was offered a 2 episodes on Baywatch but he has refused them he said.

*******

Vancouver: Here in Vancouver the concert was on April 9th. It was a good show but I thought it was a little bit short. Salman was simply fabulous in the show. He danced so well! And he looked sooooooo handsome! He doesn't look like he's 34 years old, he looks so much younger.
I had front row seats and usually they do not like selling these to the public because they reserve it for the sponsors. So my sisters and I were the only young people sitting in the front (there was also this girl beside me but I think she knew the promoters). When Salman came out the first time, all the young girls who had floor seats but were at the back, all came to the front of the stage by the gate. They were all going crazy even though Salman was performing toward the other side first and all we could see was his face. I couldn't believe the hysteria. I was wearing an Indian suit and believe me in this hungama my dupatta almost fell off, because everyone (including me) was trying to get his attention. The security guards inside the gate looked so scared because they probably thought all the girls were going to tear down the gate.
My sister and I made two signs, one said "Salman, tu munda kamaal hai" and the other one said "East or West Salman is the Best". Everytime he turned our way we flashed the signs, I think he glanced at the signs once or twice. Even after Salman finished his item, there were so many people still screaming. So he took the mic and he said " I love this type of reaction and I love you guys" And he said "If the audience isn't happy, then I am not happy".
One thing which I really think is UNFAIR is that people who are related to the sponsors or the promoters get to go backstage. I mean real fans don't get a chance and I think it is so UNFAIR!!!!! I could see people coming from behind the gate and getting someone who was related to go backstage. I just didn't like that.
Another thing which I didn't like was Saif dancing to Hrithik's "Ek Pal Ka Jeena". I mean the guy has not even had a chance to come abroad and perform his songs and here is another actor performing his songs. I just think it wasn't right (of course, this is only my personal opinion).

*******

Vancouver: I completely have to agree with everything that was mentioned about the Vancouver Concert. We also had a sign that said "Munda Kamaal Hai" (i know she saw me, cause we waved when we saw each others signs), and i think she forgot to mention the fact that Salman actually commented on our signs. Something along the lines of "I see those signs, Munda Kamaal Hai, thank you...i love you guys" That's what made my day, and i'm pretty sure it made their day as well (the other girls who had the sign).
I could not believe the Salman Khan hysteria myself. Girls rushed to the side of the railing to get a hold of him. It was crazy, they were literally pulling him every which way. Lucky for me, i actually go to hold his hand *sigh* But wow, he looked soo gorgeous, i could not believe it. The color white looked incredibly good on him (but then again, doesn't everything?) =) His dances were awesome, and everything he did just stirred up the crowd even more. Everything was PERFECT, but yah i have to agree that its not fair that the sponsers get to do everything, even go up on stage and DANCE with the actors/actresses. They already got their lunch, isn't that enough? hehe...leave something for us FANS!!!
But overall, Millenium Masti...DEFINITELY go check it out, if you haven't yet...and if you missed your chance, soo sorry! =)
ps - haha thats soo funny, i accidentally DID loose my dupatta in all the hungama.. thank goodness i found it though. hehe
