New York, NY (May 18, 2018) - Legendary performer and composer

Yanni has released "Speed Demon,"his first piece of new music since 2016.

Available today via all digital retailers, "Speed Demon" is another incredible example

of how the maestro perfectly composes anthemic, sports centered music.

With a history of placing songs effortlessly among the sports world including the

British Open, U.S. Open, Winter Olympics, World Ice SkatingChampionships

and more, it's no surprise that his first new composition in two years is an ode

to racing and is being released to coincide with the kick off of racing season.

Yanni also releases this new composition in the midst of his

"Yanni 25 - Live at The Acropolis Anniversary Concert Tour."

The tour, which kicked off in April, will keep him on the road through August,

hitting cities across North America including New York, Los Angeles,

New Orleans, Chicago, Toronto and more before wrapping on August 5 in Boston.

When asked about returning to the road in support of the 25th anniversary of his iconic

"Live at The Acropolis," Yanni declared "I find it so exciting to celebrate what I

consider to be one of the best performances of my life!" VIP and general tickets are

still available for all upcoming dates and can be found by visiting Yanni.com.

A deluxe package of completely remastered 5.1 sound and high definition video of

"Live at The Acropolis" will be released in 2018 to commemorate this anniversary.

Live at the Acropolis was released in 1994 and is the first ever live album

and concert video from the maestro. Recorded at the Herodes Atticus

Theatre in Athens with the Royal Philharmonic Concert Orchestra from London,

the concert took a year and a half to complete.

The album was mixed and produced by Yanni in his home studio

and was made into a TV special that aired in the States on PBS.

Live at the Acropolis became an incredible success and is the

best-selling live music video of all time.


Yanni's iconic performances at the Acropolis in Greece, the

Taj Mahal in India, the Forbidden City in China, the

Royal Albert Hall in England, The Pyramids in

Egypt and El Morro in Puerto Rico have crossed countless

borders and has resonated with billions of people across the globe.

Yanni has been awarded more than

40 platinum and gold albums worldwide and has sold more than

25 million albums around the world.

His most recent albums have seen chart-topping success.
