New Delhi, Oct 12 (IANS) Veteran music composer A.R. Rahman is all set to perform live in the capital Nov 17 and thanks Fever 104 FM for making his long cherished dream come true.

"I wanted to come and perform here in Delhi but somehow things didn't work out, but now with the help of Fever 104 FM I'll get a chance to perform and jive Delhi audience," said A.R. Rahman at the first anniversary bash of Fever 104 FM.

The concert will take place after 35 days of talent hunt, which will be conducted by Fever 104 FM, starting Oct 12 to Nov 17. Of all the entries, 10 singers will be shortlisted for the semi final round. The lucky five, who will clear the semi final round, will be sent to Chennai to meet the maestro who will chose one of them to perform on stage with him. Currently, Rahman is busy with international assignments. He has composed music for Shekhar Kapur's "Elizabeth - The Golden Age", which is releasing Friday.
