Greek composer and pianist Yanni said his upcoming concerts in Saudi Arabia were going to be “history in the making.”

In a tweet on Monday, Yanni wrote: “Hi everyone, we are now in Florida getting ready to fly to Saudi Arabia… We are going to be experiencing history in the making and I would not miss it for anything in the world! First stop Jeddah!”

Upon his arrival he tweeted a video, accompanied by a message: “We arrived in Jeddah just after 1:00 o'clock in the morning... and it didn't take me long before I tried to learn Arabic from the media..:) as they all made me feel very welcomed.”

The maestro will hold four concerts in Jeddah and Riyadh under the supervision of the Saudi General Authority for Entertainment.

The first concert will be held in King Abdullah Economic City on November 30. The second concert will also be held there on December 1.

Yanni will then perform at the Riyadh International Convention & Exhibition Center on December 3 and 4.
