Kohima, (Nagaland) Nov 7 : ‘Hooray Hooray, It’s a Happy Holiday’. Popular German vocal group Boney M will perform here on December 10 at the Hornbill festival.

Everything has been contracted and seven member crew of the band would arrive on December 9 for their live performance, which has been coined as ‘Christmas with Boney M’, he said, adding that “the band would be performing their original hits of the 80s and 90s”.

Five lucky ticket holders from each category would be get an opportunity to have dinner with Boney M, he said.
Elvis also said that though the state government would be shifting the International Rock Contest and music festival to Dimapur, Boney M concert will be staged in Kohima.
On the government s view that the Rock Contest needs to shifted due to security reasons and problems of traffic congestion in the State capital, he said, Dimapur is no better than Kohima but the main reason should be sharing of the much hyped Hornbill Festival to different parts of the State.
