Last Friday, Yanni Live at the Burj Khalifa was a genuinely enlightening experience for Dubai residents.
Today, the singer and composer visited the observation desk of Burj Khalifa, At The Top and tweeted: “At the top of the tallest building in the world, The Burj Khalifa, for a mile high look over the U.A.E.!“
Yanni in concert remains one of the great musical spectacles of our time worldwide. The charismatic Greek instrumentalist vowed 4,000 fans under the majestic setting of the world’s tallest building, Burj Khalifa.
A self-taught musician who contradicts his 57 years, Yanni had the audience spellbound with his unique brand of contemplative instrumental music that is wrapped around highly melodic synthesizer keyboard playing.
Yanni played a delightful two-hour set that featured most of the hits from mega-selling albums like Keys to Imagination (1986), Out of Silence (1987), In My Time (1993) and Tribute (1997). His already dramatic music was given even greater force by a wonderful entourage of musicians.
Among his most popular songs, “Assalam alaikum, Dubai” brings the response it was meant to as the crowd go wild.
