Indian fans of American pop rock band One Republic are extremely excited, and rightly so. The band has arrived in Mumbai for their maiden performance on Friday 21 April, and have a long list of things they are looking to do while in India.

The band received a warm traditional welcome when they arrived in the country and were seen with garlands around their necks as they made their way out of the airport.

The band's vocalist, Ryan Tedder, was seen in an Instagram post standing by the sea. The caption of the post read, "Exploring Mumbai. Loving it already."
