The “Golden Jubilee Bangladesh Concert” was held Friday at the Madison Square Garden (MSG) in New York, USA.
The Bangladesh Hi-Tech Park Authority organised the grand musical concert in association with Walton.
The concert was held to pay tribute to the Concert for Bangladesh, organised by George Harrison and Ravi Shankar at MSG on August 1, 1971, and celebrate the golden jubilee of Bangladesh’s independence.
Key places, including Times Square, were decorated with billboards, banners and festoons with the logos of Walton and other sponsoring organisations.
