World-renowned composer and keyboardist Yanni has announced a world tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of his iconic “Live at the Acropolis” concert and album. On the 2018 tour, Yanni and his orchestra will perform the concert live in its entirety. The extensive US leg of the tour gets underway on April 24 in Clearwater, FL and will see Yanni throughout the country before wrapping in Boston on Aug. 6. You can find a complete list of tour dates below and be sure to check out the tour announcement video above.
After making a name for himself in the US throughout the 1980s, Yanni returned to his homeland in Greece to record what would become his most celebrated live album and concert. The original 1993 event took place at the ancient Herodes Atticus Theatre in Athens where Yanni and his band performed with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Shahrdad Rohani. The album came out the next year and became Yanni’s best selling record of all-time. The film aired as a PBS special and became one of the top fundraising programs for the network. To put things in perspective, “Live at the Acropolis” is the second best selling music video of all time next to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller.”
Don’t miss your chance to celebrate this historic event recreated by the maestro himself.
Yanni will be performing LIVE at Verizon Theater on June 17, 2018. Get Tickets Here
