KARACHI - Speculations regarding Pakistani band Junoon’s reunion have been rife for ages now. Guitarist Salman Ahmad has, at several incidences in the past, hinted at a possible reunion of the original band which included Ali Azmat and Brian O’Connell.

The musician earlier revealed that he will be paying tribute to the greatest Pakistani bands of all time such as Junoon and Vital Signs.

“In 2018, I am producing a unique Broadway-style show which will pay tribute to three legends, Nazia and Zoheb Hassan, Junoon and Vital Signs. I’ve already been in talks with Zoheb, JJ’s sons, Momina Mustehsan, Asim Azhar, Irtaash and a few others.”

Adding further, the ace guitarist said that he has been speaking to Azmat, O’Connel, Rohail Hyaat and Shahi Hasan to come together.
