The concert will see the legendary duo of Ilaiyaraaja and SP Balasubrahmanyam perform on stage once again after the recent Isai Celebrates Isai concert in Chennai. The duo had a much-publicised fallout over royalty issues two years ago.

Latha Rajinikanth and her daughter Aishwarya will also be part of the event. The proceeds from the concert will go to Peace for Children, an NGO that the former runs.
A grand stage has been constructed by over 300 people exclusively for the event. Tickets for the event are priced from Rs 500 and are available on online portals such as Book My Show and PayTM.
The Isai Celebrates Isai in Chennai saw Ilaiyaraaja perform with some of his frequent collaborators such as SPB, KJ Yesudas, Bombay Jayashree, and Usha Uthup on the occasion of his birthday.
