[e-mail, 04.10.2000] Hi folks, I have been to AR Rahman Live concert was held on 23rd Sep 2000 at Nassaucoliseum auditorium. Tamilians across u.s. travelled a long distance to see this show. Many travelled for 4 to 5 hours from boston, new hamshire, atlanta, chicago etc. The cost of the concert is also very high when compare to any other american show. It was 25,35,50, 75 and 150$. But
