He has accumulated more than 40 Platinum and Gold albums globally, with sales totaling over 25 million copies, including the double-platinum 1997 Tribute album, which sold more than a million albums within six weeks of its release, and his 1994 Live at the Acropolis album, which has sold more than 7.5 million copies worldwide. He earned GRAMMY nominations for his 1992 album Dare to Dream, and the 1993 follow-up, In My Time. For over two decades, Yanni has been one of the top global touring acts seen by over five million people around the world.  His North American concert tours in 1995, 1998 and 2003-2005 each finished in the Top 10 concert tours of the year, as ranked by Performance Magazine and Pollstar, as well as selling out 10 consecutive shows at Radio City Music Hall in New York, opening the Burj Kahlifa in Dubai, and performing inside the Kremlin in Russia. 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 and El Morro in Puerto Rico have crossed countless borders and have resonated with billions across the globe.   Yanni’s latest album Inspirato - featuring the worlds greatest voices - was released in April and he is currently on the North American leg of his World Tour.
