Sydney’s State Theatre erupted in applause on Saturday night as popular Greek singer-songwriter, Yannis Kotsiras, took to the stage to perform many of his iconic hits.
Kotsiras was supported by his amazing band on the night which included a pianist, a bouzouki player, guitarist, drummer and a female singer.
The performance was watched by an almost sold-out crowd made up of Sydney’s Greek community and prominent individuals such as His Grace Bishop Christodoulos of Magnesia.
One young attendee, Petros, told The Greek Herald on the night that the concert was fantastic and he really enjoyed it.
“The concert was so good! The bouzouki and violin were a great combo and Yannis was outstanding,” Petros said with a smile.
Kotsiras’ Sydney concert is the first of three across Australia, including one at the Thebarton Theatre in Adelaide on March 9, the Palais Theatre in Melbourne on March 12 and the Darwin Entertainment Centre on March 16.
The Greek singer said he was looking forward to his Australian tour back in December 2021 in an interview with The Greek Herald.
“When people ask me which country I would like to live in if not Greece, I always say in Australia, specifically Melbourne,” Kotsiras said.
“Maybe it’s because every time I come [to Australia], I have a great time and I’ve met so many amazing people.”
It’s clear the people who attended Kotsiras’ Sydney concert on Saturday night felt exactly the same way about him!
