One of the world's all-time best-selling vocalists, multilingual jazz-pop artist Nana Mouskouri -- known for her trademark large black glasses -- comes out of retirement for a special 80th birthday tour, spotlighting songs from her favorite composers. After breaking through with the hit "The White Rose of Athens" in 1961, Mouskouri has gone on to have an incredibly varied and lengthy career, often releasing three albums a year, with hits in her native Greek, French, English, Spanish, Italian and more, in genres ranging from standards, French cabaret chansons and folk music to opera, classical, pop, gospel and and beyond, including a famed collaboration with Harry Belafonte. Among her other well-known tunes are "Je Chante Avec Toi, Liberté," "Only Love," "Love Changes Everything" and "Habanera." Learn More

the band, primarily the drummer, overpowered the sound and we couldn't hear GL for the entire first half. complaints were lodged with the house manager during the first half and at intermission; I was not the only one complaining. As I was leaving at the end, I spoke again to the house manager re the sound problems... he said they had the same problem last year ...WELL WHY THE HELL DIDN'T THEY FIX IT!!!!!
Don't blame GL's voice, for g-d's sake, fix the damn sound system and leave the drummer home !!!!
<p>Gordon Lightfoot first began to gain recognition in the mid-'60s as a songwriter when his compositions "For Lovin' Me" and "Early Morning Rain" became hits for Peter, Paul & Mary, and Marty Robbins topped the country charts with "Ribbon of Darkness." It was not until the start of the '70s that he became a big success as a solo performer, scoring in 1970 with Sit Down Young Stranger, which contained his hit "If You Could Read My Mind,". Lightfoot hit a peak in 1974 with Sundown, which went to number one, as did the title song when released on a single. Harmony, his 20th album, was released in May of 2004.</p>
