Apart from their own songs, the band also covered Beyonce’s Halo, Adele’s Rumor Has It and Ed Sheeran’s Happier. The band shared a powerfully emotional moment with the audience when they covered Avicii’s Wake Me Up in the wake of the Swedish DJ’s untimely demise.

Tedder then interacted with the audience, introduced his bandmates and said:

“Namaste India, We would not be here without you. We generally plan our tour 6 months in advance but this is the most last-minute tour we have ever planned and we switched venues overnight. It's a total dream come true for us. I wanted to visit India since I was 10.”
