  1. Wow, this was an AMAZING, historic event! It was the largest concert in the past 20 years in Greece, and the weather held (well, the second night, it was cancelled the first night). The estimates were something like 70 – 80,000 people, and I cannot tell you how impressed I was with the audience. So different an experience from an American concert: The audience ranged in age from 8 months to 80 years, and though the stadium was packed, and moving in and about was difficult, people were patient (how different for the Greeks) and respectful.
    I’m sure there will be lots of videos appearing online in the next few days, but for now here is the first I’ve found:

    One of my top 5 favorite things about Greece occurred in this clip at about 7 minutes, when the musicians stop playing, the singer turns the mike toward the audience, and 80,000 voices sing in unison. I got goose bumps everytime I attend a Greek concert and this occurs!
