Greek superstar Sakis Rouvas is set to wow crowds in Australia next April, as he plans a four-hour special with fellow singing star Antonis Remos at the Vodafone Arena in Melbourne.

Sakis shot through the Eurovision Song Contest semifinal of 2004 to end up in third place at the final for Greece, bringing the established and popular Greek artist to the attention of a whole new group of fans outside Europe. German-born Antonis Remos returned to Greece with his family at the age of ten, and forged a similarly successful career as a singer.

Together, the pair will present a four-hour special show to a 1200-strong crowd at the Vodafone Arena, Melbourne, on 12th April 2008, with both table and auditorium seating. Tickets go on sale on 15th October; see for more details.
