Free ticket giveaway: Yanni at the Fox Theatre


BY MELISSA RUGGIERI/AJC Music Scene

(Congrats to randomly selected winner Lisi S.!)

Back in the early ‘90s, Yanni was regarded as much for his lustrous locks as his intoxicating synthesizer work.

The Greek instrumentalist vaulted to mainstream fame upon the release of “Live at the Acropolis” in 1994, a concert release recorded at a 2013 concert in Athens with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra from London.

Yanni will bring that dose of nostalgia to the Fox Theatre at 7:30 p.m. May 2 with a concert celebrating the 25th anniversary of the album. Thanks to the folks at the Fox, I have a pair of tickets to give away.

If you would like to buy tickets, they are $49.50-$125 and available at www.foxtheatre.org, 1-855-285-8499 and at the venue box office.

If you would like to try to win the pair, here is the drill:

Zip me an email at mruggieri@ajc.com by 6 p.m. Monday, April 30. Please do not enter if you cannot attend and please, only one entry per email address.

You must put “Yanni” in the subject line or I will not see your email. If you tell me “I want to touch Yanni’s hair” or anything other than just “Yanni” I will not see your email and thus, you cannot win.

I will randomly select — and contact — a winner Monday evening, so please keep an eye on your email.

While this isn’t a requirement, I would really appreciate a follow on  Twitter  or  Facebook .

Good luck!
