Prime Circle is starting 2010 with two high-profile festival dates in India, proving once again that the five-piece is still more than capable of breaking barriers close to a decade since they first formed.

“We are very excited to be playing before such a big live audience,” says Prime Circle frontman Ross Learmonth of his band’s appearance on February 20th in Delhi and February 21st in Bangalore, where they will play the Rock 'N India festival alongside headliners Backstreet Boys and Richard Marx. The festival was inaugurated in 2008 and has seen the likes of Megadeth and Iron Maiden perform to a growing audience with Prime Circle being the main international rock drawcard this year.

“We’re also very proud to be part of the wave of bands who are representing rock music in India, which is still a young market for the genre,” Learmonth reveals. “Our tour to India last year showed us that there is a very appreciative audience for our music in the country and we’re are looking to build on that with these two dates.”

2009 saw Prime Circle play four dates in India in partnership with the Hard Rock Café as well as a performance at the Umang Festival in Mumbai – earning strong reviews and an Indian fanbase along the way. ‘All Or Nothing’ is released in the territory via EMI India.

The connection with India had been made earlier in the year when Prime Circle performed at the Indian Premier League’s closing event in May 2009, capturing the attention of a 12-million-strong global television audience, 10-million of which were in India alone.
