World-renowned Greek composer and pianist Yanni announced that he will perform 4 concerts with his orchestra in Riyadh and Jeddah.
The first concert will be held in King Abdullah Economic City on November 30. The second one will also be held there on December 1.
Yanni will then hold a concert at the Riyadh International Convention & Exhibition Center on December 3 and 4, Saudi Gazette reported.
The concerts are under the supervision of the Saudi General Authority for Entertainment
Enhancing cultural and entertainment opportunities throughout Saudi Arabia is an integral part of the Riyadh's Vision 2030, which has been championed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
Amr al-Madani, head of the kingdom's General Authority for Entertainment, said in early January that concerts and cinemas would come to the kingdom in 2017.
Yanni's fans in Saudi Arabia are stoked
"I can't be more excited. From the bottom of my heart, thank you"
"Is this a miracle or a dream coming true? Shall I believe it or not? I always dreamed of watching one of your concerts in Dubai but you will now honor us by visiting my country... I won't miss this concert!"
