Madonna has many avid fans amongst Indians and we are sure that our connoisseurs, who are fascinated by her genre of music, will enjoy the Madonna Forever Tour.”
What started off with Black Dog Comedy Evenings is now branching out into the Black Dog Easy Evenings domain. Black Dog called Melissa Totten to India for a seven-city tour because they wanted to create an exciting format and needed a superlative artiste.
As part of the Black Dog Easy Evenings initiative, Black Dog had previously brought to India international artists like Colin Mochrie, Brad Sherwood and Wayne Brady of â€˜Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Hollywood stars Rob Schneider, Russell Peters and Kenny G, along with national talent like Ash Chandler and Papa CJ. Venturing out to other divisions, it has also been a part of theatrical productions like The Game, One out of Six, Man for all Seasons, etc. Melissa and her troupe of seven dancers delivered their best in enchanting the audience in 7 cities across India! Folks at the event enjoyed two of the best variants of Black Dog Scotch Whisky – Black Dog Reserve dating 18 years and Black Dog Deluxe dating 12 years.
