When: Sat., June 2, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $51.50-$152

Friends, readers, musicians, we come to praise, not bury this multiplatinum instrumental icon. He foresaw a need and leapt into the breach: The world desired rave music for people too old, white or (figuratively/literally) lame to dance, and got it in spades. Yanni's dramatic orchestral compositions take elevator music to a new level, channeling the hot soapy sweep of television's One Life To Live. You can scarcely have your ass professionally rubbed, buy incense or shop for crystals without feeling his influence. Yanni reimagines classical music, conveying the shallow shine, empty pomp and disposability of the modern age in a way anyone can appreciate. Tickets to the 8 p.m. show are a mere $52–$152. —Chris Parker
