Multi-award winning Greek singer Michalis Hatzigiannis live at Emperors Palace for one night only!

29 September 2010

Cypriot Michalis Hatzigiannis, one of most successful Greek artists of his decade, returns to Emperors Palace Hotel Casino Convention Entertainment Resort to perform with singing sensation and beauty Keti Garbi at an exclusive gala concert to be held in the Centre Court on 23 October 2010.

A graduate of the Cyprus Music Academy with a degree in piano, guitar and music, Michalis won first prize in a song contest at the tender age of 15. Since then, the talented performer has achieved world-wide acclaim, with his first three albums reaching platinum status.

Most recently Michalis enjoyed a very successful collaboration with pop group Onirama, and toured with them in a series of live performances in spring this year. 2010 also saw Michalis release "Kolaz", his new album featuring cover songs of Michalis' most admired Greek composers, including the number one summer hit "To kalokairi mou" ("My summer"). "Kolaz" has turned four times platinum.

Overall, Michalis has released 11 albums, won numerous awards including over 20 Arion Awards (the official Music Awards of Greece) and both the coveted ‘Singer of the Year' and ‘Man of the Year' titles in the Johnnie Walker Man of the Year 2007 Awards, and his concerts continue to sell out globally.

Michalis has performed at a number of prestigious events over the years, including when he represented Cyprus at the official European Union enlargement ceremony which took place in Warsaw to mark the accession of ten new countries into the EU.

Keti Garbi's highly successful career spans more than 20 years and she has become affectionately known as "Kaitoula" by her devoted fans. With more than 20 albums released and performances with other leading artists like Anna Vissi, Tolis Voskopoulos, Kostas Tournas, Dionysis Sxoinas, Foivos Delivorias and more, the concert spectacular should not be missed.

Tickets start from R600 per person. For bookings and further information please contact Africa Pacific Promotions on 011 788-7514 or 011 788-7693.
