The night of 28 June 2009 was one o the worst night in the history of Pakistani Music as Crowd goer went mad and started destructing the musical equipments because of the absence of eP
The story goes like that eP along with Qayaas and Kharaj had to perform at Lok Virsa Theatre Open(Islamabad) on 28 June 2009.Everyone came to watch the performance of the pioneers of Rock Music Industry of Pakistan.The Concert organizers informed Crowd till 12 am that eP is late and would soon be performing meanwhile Qayaas and Kharaj played a rocking performance to make the concert going.Approximately at 12:30 am the crowd showed their frustration at peak,some people came on stage and started harming the sound equipments as eP were not performing in that concert
When eP was asked that why they were not present in the concert so Fawad AFzal Khan -lead vocalist and Rhythm Guitarist said that “it is due to miss management of the organizers eP was not able to perform tonight. Hoping for a true concert really soon! Sorry everyone…”
In another statement from his Facebook profile, Fawad stated, “Management didnt let us perform and were screwed up.. We were ready, but they caused issues”
There were already many questions running in minds of eP maniacs so one of them called Haassan khalid – manager and Bassist of eP so he stated that “eP were not being paid by the organizers even though they were ready to perform.”
Now the question is who should be blame for? eP or Organizers?
Well thats for sure that eP was all prepared for this concert as before one day of concert Waqar Khan – drummer of eP made the status on his facebook profile that ” Isloo here i come . . .”
Official News : eP will launch a video for it on music channels and then webs. eP was not paid and thats the true reason.
