Bookmark and Share

Yanni is going to cast his magical spell on the capital's fans with no less than two shows -- one on Thursday and another on Friday at the du Forum in Yas Island. He is happy to be in Abu Dhabi and "excited" about his debut in the capital. "I have been to Dubai and Sharjah. It's nice to be here. I wanted to come here for some time now but never managed to get the dates correctly. I am beginning to learn that all the emirates are different. I am learning about the culture," he said during a media interaction held at Fairmont Bab Al Bahr Hotel in the Capital on Wednesday. Recounting his first visit to Dubai, Yanni said: "I had seen photographs of Dubai and I had an imagination of how this city will be. At the airport, I thought will anyone recognise me? Just then the guard waved at me and said 'Hey, how are you doing. Welcome home'. And that's how my relation started with the UAE. Every time I come here, I am treated like a royalty. like a brother."
