Fans of Strings and Zoe Viccaji got up close and personal with their idols at the launch of the Levi's Global Store Launch at the Dolmen City Mall in Karachi. Bilal Maqsood, Faisal Kapadia and Zoe were at the outlet signing T-shirts and posing for pictures. 

After the signing, Strings and Zoe took the stage for exclusive, invite only concert with many familiar faces from the entertainment and fashion industry in attendance.

The show started with an electric performance by Zoe, a rising star in the Pakistani music scene who's new single "Jo Chaho" has been making the rounds on the radio and internet.

Zoe kicked off the show with covers of Florence and The Machine's "Dog Days Are Over",  Santana's "Smooth"  and then progressed to some of her own folky original songs.

Primed and warmed up by the Zoe's impressive performance, the crowd really got into mood once Strings took the stage.  Opening with their hit " Koi Aanay Wala Hai" they really got things cooking by pulling out their greatest hits such as "Na Jane Kyoun", "Duur" and of course, "Sar Kiye Yeh Pahar."

Eventually Zoe joined them on stage to perform "Mera Bichra Yaar" a collaboration that made waves among music fans all over Pakistan. Strings ended the show with their political rallying cry that is "Men Tu Dekhonga" urging the audience to be more responsible and become part of the hope and change ideals that have recently captured the conscience of the country.
