The godfather of New Age music, Yanni, announced last year that he’d celebrate the 25th anniversary of Live at the Acropolis with a world tour.

“I find it so exciting to be able to celebrate what I consider to be one of the best performances of my life!” Yanni said in a press release. “I can’t wait to see everyone and present to all of you this whole new experience, where the past and the present become one! Expect many surprises… My imagination is the only limit!”

Though Yanni’s blend of soft rock, world music, classical and jazz wasn’t exactly commercial pop material, the Greek composer and pianist has managed to build a crazy cult-like following because his music is pretty badass and strangely hypnotic.

$45-$275, Wed Jun 20, 8pm, 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-5700, majesticempire.com.
