  1. Thanks to Anna for the great photos once again, even if she did get told off!!! It was wonderful to see Dalaras concerts again after some time away, and to see friends again. I loved hearing old songs again too. Take care Lynne
  2. Annemarie, I have checked with my friend at Greekcity and they have discovered that the labels are the problem so just contact her and she will send you new dvds. This applies to anyone else as well. This is why they have withdrawn it from sales so they could check out the problem and solve it. It seems that it depends on the player, on mine it works fine, but not on others. There is also a problem as it needs to be played on a player that has multiregion as they have been produced in the UK. They have had problems with a Vissi dvd issued by Sony as well due to the multiregion problem and they are all being returned in the UK as they are not playing so the big boys still have trouble too!!!!!
  3. Anna, Amazing photos as always! I'm really glad that you went and enjoyed the show. Thanks Take care Lynne
  4. Sorry I meant Olympic Stadium with Alexiou and Parios. I have a copy and this is a produced by Greek city who have the copyright so it is a proper recording as they have their own studio. I didn't explain it very well as I was in a hurry. If you visit the website you can see that they sell Greek films and CD's as well and are based in London. It is run by a friend of mine Olympia and they also sell tickets for Greek singers in UK. I am sure you will enjoy it if you buy it and the copy is very good although the sound doesn't have the perfection of today but this was recorded 20 years ago and it is live!
  5. For information this is a re-recording on DVD of the old concert which was released on video years ago and if anyone hasn't got it it is well worth buying. This is the concert in Olympia Stadium from 1983 and is a double DVD. It costs 19.99 UK pounds plus postage from www.greekcity.co.uk.
  6. My thanks too Anna, wonderful photos as usual, and even my back!!!!!! See you soon I hope.
  7. I spoke to the promotors today and teh dates are going to be changed as there is some overbooking of artists???????? So we don't know the correct dates or even if it will take place - that's fairly normal for Cyprus and also the tiockets will probably not be on sale until 2 to 3 weeks before as usual!!!! When I find out the correct dates I will let you know.
  8. Finally I have confirmed the concerts in Cyprus. Friday 23rd - Larnaca Saturday 24th - Paralimni Monday 26th - Limassol (not Nicosia) For once he is singing in my home town Paralimni, it is many years since he has sang here and I believe that it will be a very special concert. As it will be 30 years since the war on July 20th and that week will be very emotional in this area with so many refugees from Famagusta.
  9. I would like to add something here. Perhaps you should consider that for Hadjiyiannis to even start a career firstly he had to move to Athens as it is impossible in Cyprus for a singer to make any impact. He spent his youth singing Dalaras's songs, but if he had tried to break into the market with that style then he would never have got anywhere, so he went for a more commercial road. I have heard him sing here with MImis Plessas playing piano and he was playing guitar, no other musicans, and believe me he sang some wonderful songs. He is very talented vocally and writes his own music as well. I believe that Dalaras's reasoning was to encourage him to move into different areas of music and bring his name forward to an older audience. He is still very young and has a lot of years ahead of him and with guidance could become a great singer / performer. Yes he sings pop music as that is what sells (everyone knows that) and he wants to make money and become known as anybody would, but wait a few years and I am sure that we will hear different things from him, and we will have Dalaras to thank for that too. Bringing forth new talent . I don't believe that it's a waste for Dalaras to sing with new younger singers to show them the way, and anyway he likes to do different things so why not! Actually there were very few young girls there, no more that 20 - 30 and they weren't screaming, only clapping. I've been at a Beatles concert and that's screaming Also thanks to Agnie for the photos they were excellent, they took my camera off me the first night so I didn't bother to take it the second night and they didn't check then!!!! Typical uh!
  10. Have to agree with Anna, although I enjoyed the Hadjiyannis's songs as well - at least when he sings it is with a good voice and not like some other pop music where the person cannot even sing in tune! It would be great to hear some other songs too as we always get a lot of the same these days. But I did enjoy the shows and I am sure they will sing together in the future as they seemed to have a great rapport with each other - almost like father and son. Had to admit the highlight for me was also the last song on the second evening - it is one of my favorites anyway and it performed beautifully by both of them with great harmony and feeling. I wanted to cry too.
  11. I have booked a table to see Alexiou with Kotsiras for next Thursday 15th Jan, but have one seat spare. Does anyone want to go? Please let me know before Tuesday 13th
  12. I just spoke to my friend and she said that they should have the tickets in the next day or so and the prices are 40 - 65 pounds.
  13. Anyway they are wrong as there were only two concerts in Cyprus, in fact originally it was only one and then they added the second one!!!!!!
  14. WONDERFUL!!!!! There voices together are just perfect, I believe this CD will be a classic and definitly not to be missed. On the top of everyones shopping list. I am so looking forward to seeing them later this month. And Kate 'O Mare E Tu' is incredible - my favorite
