Iconic Bollywood composer A.R. Rahman is set to return to Orlando in June as part of a North American tour kicking off in late May. Florida fans of the soundtrack maestro have only this one chance to see Rahman in the state, as of this writing.

The Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack mastermind is currently working on an ambitious "We Are the World"-style song project called "Hands Around the World" to raise awareness of climate change. Artists as varied as Cody Simpson, Natasha Bedingfield and Akon are participating.

A.R. Rahman headlines the Walt Disney Theater at the Dr. Phillips Center on Wednesday, June 10, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets can be purchased here.
