LEGENDARY COMPOSER AND PERFORMER
YANNI
The World's True Global Artist
LIVE AT THE RIVERSIDE THEATER
THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 4 7PM DOORS 8PM SHOW

A true global ambassador for peace, good will, and understanding, YANNI is one of the most recognizable composer performers of our time. He is, without a doubt, a musical phenomenon—a rare artist whose music defies borders and boundaries. His music speaks to people of all races and all nations.

YANNI has accumulated more than 40 platinum and gold albums globally, with sales totaling over 25 million copies, including the double-platinum 1997 Tribute album, which sold more than a million albums within six weeks of it's release, and his 1994 Live at the Acropolis album, which has sold more than 7.5 million copies worldwide (5 million in North America). He earned Grammy nominations for his 1992 album Dare to Dream, and the 1993 follow-up, In My Time.

The Tribute DVD debuted at #2 on the Music Video charts and earned double-platinum status, while the Live At The Acropolis DVD is six-times platinum, the second-best music video of all time (selling more than 12 million copies globally). His concerts have been broadcast on television in more than 40 countries with upwards of 2 billion people around the world experiencing his TV specials.

For over two decades, YANNI has been one of the top global touring acts seen by over five million people around the world. His North American concert tours in 1995, 1998 and 2003-2005 (finding out on how recent tours have done) each finished in the Top 10 concert tours of the year, as ranked by Performance Magazine and Pollstar, as well as selling out 10 consecutive shows at Radio City Music Hall in New York, opening the Burj Kahlifa in Dubai, and performing inside the Kremlin in Russia.

YANNI's song, "Aria," was composed for the award winning British Airways commercial which is still today the most successful and longest running commercial ever. His music is also a staple as a soundtrack for television, especially major sporting events, including the Olympic Games, The Super Bowl, The Tour De France, and the PGA Golf Championships, since 1988.

YANNI has continued to tour extensively throughout the world performing sold-out concerts in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Asia, North America and South America. As YANNI travels throughout the world, he continues to support children, music and education in the countries he visits. He has become a spokesperson for NASA and has entered into a collaboration with the World Wildlife Fund, the first of it's kind.

During his most recent visit to China, YANNI performed live on CCTV during their Spring Festival Gala broadcast to over 1 billion people globally. YANNI was the first non-Chinese artist to participate in this event.

YANNI's World Tour continues with an ALL NEW show for 2014. YANNI and his world-renowned orchestra will perform audience favorites from throughout his career, as well as selections from his latest studio album, Truth of Touch (2011).
