Given the day they performed was also the day that India's musical doyen Pandit Ravi Shankar passed away, one of the band's final songs was an acoustic version of Patience, through which it paid tribute to the world's greatest sitarist. This was also perhaps a subtle way of appeasing the crowd as people grew restive, waiting for THE song. And sure enough, as the last chords of Patience faded, Fortus and Thal brandished their guitars and played the chorus of the song everyone had been waiting for. As people made devil's horns at the stage, and the giant screens erupted with stimulated flames, for seven glorious minutes, Gurgaon became Paradise City.
Now that it was 10 pm, the time when performances are supposed to end on the HUDA Grounds, the stage went dark and the band exited without further ado. But as the crowd chanted "one more", the lights blazed back on, and the band took to the stage again, perhaps just to remind us that Nice Boys don't play rock and roll.
