Blunt became a global pop music phenomenon in the 2000s with his song 'You’re Beautiful' from his debut album, Back to Bedlam. While many cherished the song for years assuming it was a love song, Blunt made a startling revelation in an interview with Huffington Post that "it was about a guy who’s high as a f**king kite on drugs in the subway stalking someone else’s girlfriend when that guy is there in front of him, and he should be locked up or put in prison for being some kind of perv.”

The 42-year-old is currently on a world tour to promote his fifth album, The Afterlove. Blunt will travelling to India, Malaysia, Singapore, China, Taiwan and Bangkok as part of the Asian leg of The Afterlove World Tour, which began in August 2017.

However, the dates and ticket sales for the event in Bangalore are yet to be announced.
