Award-winning blues rock star, guitar hero and singer-songwriter Joe Bonamassa and his ace touring band will perform in concert at the San Jose Civic on April 18, 2013. The one-night-only show is in support of his brand new solo album Driving Towards The Daylight (J&R Adventures) which made its chart debut at #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart, the 8th time a Bonamassa album has debuted at #1. He also debuted at #23 on the Billboard Top 200, a career-best outranking 2011′s Dust Bowl which peaked at #37, and #5 on the Independent Chart. This is Bonamassa’s best opening sales week to date. In the UK, Driving Towards The Daylight led the way for most of the week before Emeli Sande nudged past by fewer than 100 sales to clinch the #1 spot. It debuted at #2, also a career-best since Dust Bowl’s peak at #12.

Legendary composer and performer Yanni returns to the City National Civic of San Jose on Saturday, March 19 with a new show for 2016. Yanni and his world-renowned orchestra will perform audience favorites from throughout his career as well as newly reworked arrangements of the classics.

As a true global ambassador for peace, compassion, and understanding, Yanni is one of the most recognizable composers and performers of our time. He is a musical phenomenon—a rare artist whose music transcends geographical borders and touches people of all races and nations.

Yanni has accumulated more than 40 platinum and gold albums, with international sales totaling over 25 million copies, including the 1997 double-platinum Tribute album, which sold more than a million copies within six weeks of its release, and 1994’s Live at the Acropolis, which has sold more than 7.5 million copies worldwide (five million in North America). He has also earned Grammy nominations for his 1992 album Dare to Dream, and the 1993 follow-up, In My Time.

The epic Tribute DVD, released in 1997 to commemorate Yanni’s historic live performances at the Taj Mahal in India and China’s Forbidden City, debuted at #2 on the Music Video charts and earned double-platinum status. Live At The Acropolis has reached platinum an incredible six-times, the second-best music video of all time (selling more than 12 million copies globally). His concerts have been broadcasted on television in more than 40 countries with upwards of 2 billion people tuning in to experience his TV specials.

For over two decades, Yanni has been one of the top global touring acts in the world entertaining over five million people. Several of his North American tours finished in the Top 10 concert tours of the year, as ranked by Performance Magazine and Pollstar. He has sold out an incredible 10 consecutive shows at the historic Radio City Music Hall in New York, opened the Burj Kahlifa in Dubai, and performed inside the Kremlin in Russia.

The universal appeal of his music has translated well as a soundtrack for major sporting events and commercial placement. Yanni’s song, “Aria,” was composed for an award winning British Airways commercial which still remains the most successful and longest running commercial of all time. Since 1988, his music has provided a dramatic backdrop for such iconic sporting events as the Olympic Games, the Super Bowl, Tour De France, and the PGA Golf Championships.

Yanni has continued to tour extensively throughout the world, performing sold-out concerts in Eastern Europe, the Middle East, Asia, North America and South America. His notoriety and success has allowed Yanni to engage in the many humanitarian efforts that he feels so passionately about. He continues to support children, music and education in the countries he visits. He has become a spokesperson for NASA and has entered into a collaboration with the World Wildlife Fund, aimed at raising awareness for panda conservation.

Celebrating their 30th Anniversary, HELLOWEEN will play the Avalon Hollywood on March 7.

Without a doubt, this Hamburg Metal institution immediately took the helm of Melodic Speed Metal when releasing their 5-Track-EP Helloween in December of 1985, the superb LP-debut Walls Of Jericho, as well as the two in 1987/88 unleashed masterpieces Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part I/II. Some say they are the godfathers of this genre, who continue to inspire legions of genre-peers and newcomer-bands alike. Throughout their stunning 30-year career HELLOWEEN kept busy occupying the pole positions of renowned festival billings such as Brazilian‚ Rock in Rio’, Japanese‚ Loudpark’ Festival, the annually happening world’s biggest Heavy-Metal-open-air festival, the Wacken Open Air’, or the Polish‚ Woodstock’, where 500.000 ecstatic fans celebrated Germany’s speed kings. On top of that, HELLOWEEN completed countless headlining world tours, made audiences in exotic landscapes such as Indonesian island Borneo or the Brazilian jungle metropolis Manaus go crazy, and literally took their breath away in La Paz, the world’s highest-altitude capitol (situated at 3.200 meters above sea level). Beyond that, they also played some spectacular shows alongside Metal giants BLACK SABBATH, DIO, OZZY OSBOURNE und SLAYER. Meanwhile, the 5-piece has 14 studio releases and 3 live-albums under their belt, which sold a combined 8 million copies worldwide and banked 15 gold and 6 platinum awards in the process. The most recent release Straight Out Of Hell made a sensational #4 album chart entry in Germany (their highest German chart position thus far), which gained another five top 10 chart entries throughout Europe and even crashed the US‚ Billboard top 100. The Hellish Rock Part II-Tour in support of this chart breaker led them through 39 countries in Europe, Asia and North America, booking over 100 sold-out shows.

Even after 3 decades, the new powerful opus My God-Given Right emphasizes on this curious trip to continue in their anniversary year of 2015. According to singer Andi Deris, the band insists on a simple motto: “Back to the roots – but with new songs.” He continues, “More than ever, our fans want to sing and rock out along with us. This simply works best with the use of distinctive choruses and 80-ies hooklines.” Guitarist Michael Weikath clarifies, “It is not our mission to just relive the 80-ies at all cost – to our own surprise, the whole dynamic of this working concept took on a life of its own.”
