26-City U.S. Tour Begins March 4th, 2004 in New Mexico

Due to the overwhelming response of fan and critics alike, Yanni will bring his Ethnicity World Tour to 26 additional U.S. cities beginning March 4th, 2004 in New Mexico. Fans should consult their local media for on-sale and purchasing information. This second leg of Yanni�s 2003-04 Ethnicity World Tour is nationally promoted by AEG LIVE, in association with Danny O�Donovan, and features music from his latest album, Ethnicity, as well as his much loved classics, which pulse with the rhythms and voices of cultures from around the globe.

In March 2003, Yanni launched his Ethnicity World Tour in Las Vegas and performed in more than 60 cities throughout North America; selling more than 500,000 tickets; becoming one of the top grossing tours of 2003. Accompanied by his core band and full symphony orchestra, Yanni�s Enthicity World Tour is an experience that transcends race and religion; uniting people of all ages and backgrounds. His music has earned him accolades around the world including more than 35 platinum and gold album awards worldwide and has been featured at every Summer and Winter Olympic Games for the past two decades. In addition, Yanni had the honor of performing the U.S. National Anthem at Game Five of the 2003 World Series.

Yanni�s eclectic music has touched millions of listeners across the world. He has performed in more than twenty countries and was the first major Western artist to perform and record at the Forbidden City in China and the Taj Mahal in India. His performance at the Taj Mahal resulted in the multi-platinum album, Tribute, which ultimately led to three million dollars in donations to a Taj preservation fund. Known for his tireless fundraising efforts, Yanni is one of the top fundraising artists for PBS. He will return to PBS in December with a new television special, Live At Royal Albert Hall, London, and will appear live at several stations around the country during the PBS December 2003 pledge drive.

To follow are the 2nd leg of U.S. dates for the Ethnicity World Tour. (On-sale information to be announced shortly.)

Well, I better set my VCR for the December pledge drive. YMB members, contact PBS and find out the date and time. That way, if your VCR happens to have a timer, the timer will grab the show.
