In an epic turn of events, Pakistan’s former rock band – or lets rephrase that – Pakistan’s most dapper and adored Sufi rock band Junoon might be open to an idea of a reunion, hints the band’s very own frontman, Ali Azmat.
Taking to the official Facebook page, Team Ali Azmat wrote, “Who wants to see South Asia’s biggest band ‘Junoon’ reunite this year?”
And fans are in utter frenzy and we can’t blame them!
“Never thought i would read something like this in my life!! That would be amazing! Gift of the century to all the die hard fans! Ali bhai, feeling so emotional already!” wrote a fan.
Another one expressed his feeling as he wrote, “Bro stop playing with our emotions! You know we have been wanting a reunion tour and album for the last 10 years!”
People are flying in all over the world for this epic reunion! ” I’m flying from Canada for this, announce the dates soon please!!!” wrote another die-hard fan.
Previously, in 2014, when the rumours of the rock band reuniting made rounds, Azmat exclusively denied the claims and told The Express Tribune, “No, this is wrong news, nothing like that is happening.”
The reports of Junoon reuniting also sparked curiousity last year, and the Maula singer denied it again, saying, “It’s not happening… under no circumstances. Everyone else is in the US and I am in Pakistan.”
The Express Tribune was unable to receive a comment from any of the band members immediately.
Will Pakistan’s beloved band reunite this year? Guess we just have to wait and watch. But let us tell you, the country is praying for this epic reunion that might revive our music scene once again – taking it to new heights.
Junoon, the band is originally from Punjab, Pakistan and was formed in 1990. The band is directed by founder, lead guitarist and songwriter, Salman Ahmad, who soon teamed up with keyboardist Nusrat Hussain and vocalist Ali Azmat.
