The inaugural show will be at 7 p.m. on Thursday, and on subsequent days the shows will be organised at 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. The inaugural show will be preceded by his son Akash's blindfolded motorbike ride from Tummalapallivari Kshetrayya Kalakshetram.

Entry ticket is priced from Rs. 50 to Rs. 250, and the audience will be treated to about 65 items in each show. Mr. Anand, who has been performing mainly in south Indian states for the last eight years, is making a comeback to Vijayawada after a gap of five years.
