Diljit Dosanjh Announces Another Canadian Stadium Concert, at Toronto's Rogers Centre

Dosanjh had previously announced a record-breaking concert at Vancouver's BC Place, and now adds 12 more dates to his history-making Dil-Luminati tour, which will mark the first time a Punjabi musician has headlined at both Vancouver and Toronto stadiums.

Diljit Dosanjh is making more history with his latest tour announcement.

The artist has revealed where he'll be taking his Dil-Luminati tour this summer, adding twelve new dates following his previously announced stadium show in Vancouver. The tour promises to be monumental: beginning in Vancouver and ending in Toronto, it marks the first time a Punjabi artist has headlined Vancouver's BC Place and Toronto's Rogers Centre. The BC Place performance is also set to be the largest ever Punjabi music concert outside of India, at a sold-out capacity of 54,000.
