Yanni 2012 concert tour lands at Sac Community Center Theater July 29 | Arts & Culture
Sacramento, CA –Yanni, music’s true world citizen and most popular contemporary composer, announced today the additions to the major tour of North America which includes the Community Center Theater in Sacramento, CA on Sunday, July 29 at 7:30pm. Tickets are available at Tickets.com, by calling 916.808.5181, or at Sacramento Convention Center Box Office.
December 16th and 17th, Yanni performed and filmed two shows at Castillo San Felipe Del Morro, a recognized UNESCO Heritage Site, in Puerto Rico. The show will air exclusively in the United States on PBS and debut March 3, 2012. The CD/DVD combo will be available exclusively through PBS pledge drives and a worldwide release on April 17.
Last year, Yanni, one of the music industry’s most beloved artists, sold out major concert venues around the world including Eastern Europe, the Middle East and Asia. With his world-class orchestra, he performed music from his latest album “Truth of Touch,” now platinum in the Middle East, as well as classic concert favorites.
Last October, Yanni was embraced and honored by the country of China when the government invited Yanni to adopt a panda during his time in Chengdu. Traditionally such privilege is reserved for countries rather than personalities. He affectionately named her “Santorini” in honor of the word’s embedded Greek meaning, “Peace,” for Greece’s most beautiful island and after one of Yanni’s most well known compositions.
In addition to his television special in Puerto Rico, his string of U.S. dates will be followed by a South American tour in the fall of 2012, and a multi-city tour of China in 2013. As Yanni tours across the globe, his heartfelt and compelling music continues to touch both old and new fans.
In a separate announcement, Yanni has just debuted “Yanni-All Access” on the artist’s official website, www.yanni.com. It is an exclusive behind the scenes view with highlights from Yanni’s concert dates, cultural attractions, and the musician’s message for premium fan club members.
