On the cold Sunday evening of November 13, music lovers in the capital city of New Delhi fell in love with their local boy Prateek Kuhad a little more. The singer-songwriter, who is known for his songs like Kho Gaye Hum Kahan, cold/mess, Kasoor, Saansein, performed in front of his home audience at Airia Mall in Gurugram as part of his all-India tour, titled The Way Lovers Do tour.
At around 8-ish in the evening, Prateek, dressed casually in a pair of khakee pants and a baggy shirt, took the center stage and crooned some of his renowned songs in front of an enthusiastic crowd. "I have work tomorrow from 8 in the morning and I live in Greater Noida, but I travelled all the way to Gurugram just to witness Prateek singing cold/mess live on stage with my girlfriend," said Jay Singh, 27, while his partner Smita looked on and smiled.
In the middle of his songs, Prateek would took about his musical journey in brief and frequently ask his fans how were they doing. To which, the fans were happy to respond, in unison, saying, "Wonderful!"
Prateek Kuhad played his final song—his globally recognised number from 2018 featuring Bollywood actors Jim Sarbh and Zoya Hussain—at around 10 at night before bowing in humility in front of the audience as they cheered him on.
"So, the title is basically from one of the songs from my album The Way that Lovers Do and when you are creating music, sometimes you miss these small yet impactful things. When I read that same line on paper, I knew it had to be the title," Prateek Kuhad told us about the inspiration behind the title of his tour (and album) during our recent exclusive interview with him.
For the uninitiated, Prateek Kuhad is currently on an all-India tour, titled The Way That Lovers Do Tour, which also happens to be the title of his latest album.
Spread over 2 months and spanning 15 cities, the widely loved musician will be embarking on what is positioned to be one of his largest-ever homegrown tours within the sub-continent.
The tour follows the release of Kuhad’s latest 11-track studio album The Way That Lovers Do that was released in May 2022 via Elektra Records and spoke about human love, friendship, and connectivity.
