PostSubject: Sakis + Remos   20th January 2008, 9:49 am

I have a question concerning Sakis + Remos concerts. Why do you think that Sakis is not going on tour alone but with Remos? Do you think that Remos is more, less or equaly popular outside Greece? I know that Remos' genre (modern ethnic) sells more here in Greece but is it true abroad?

Do you think that Sakis wouldn't make it on his own?

What kind of question is that???

The venues which greek artists play when abroad are exactly like the style of the clubs they play when they are in Athens or Salonika for the winter.

Would you have expected Sakis to hold it alone at Fever? No !

These concerts in Australia, America, Canada and now South Africa are the kind of concerts which will often include a slap up dinner. Its a black tie event - not a jeans and t-shirt crowd of screaming rouvitses so there is bound to be more than one artist on the programme and no doubt a set of dancers. There has to be variety to such a show.

Could Marinella have entertained us for hours at the Athinon Arena all night if Remos hadnt also been on the bill? I dont think so.

Its just similar with the Rouvas Remos tour.

If we are talking about the kind of concerts that WE are used to with Sakis then HELL YES I think he would make it on his own.

and one day soon I truly believe.... HE WILL !!!!!

I don't agree with the question either.
We all know that in such events abroad Greek singers go 2-2 or even three together!!!!

Qite frankly, YES. When Sakis was appearing with Mazonakis, and his programm was over, everyone run for the exits as if the club was on fire. I was actually sorry for Mazonakis who was singing in empty chairs. And to be honest I wasn't so crazy about Vandi either.

Helena was worth watching but everyone else was

And why is it so necessary to have a bouzouki club appearence when a greek singer goes abroad? Why can't Sakis present a show like the oscar event? Or Live Ballands?

I don't think so either but why is it neccassary to drag the programm on and on all night? Why can't it be a two or three hour show?

That's what I'm asking about.

Ok - if thats your question...

Yes I believe Sakis could hold his own for a two or three hour show such as you describe.

He is versatile and has proved time and time again that he can handle any kind of song you want to throw at him from Rock to Sinatra and everything inbetween.

But....the tour they are embarking on is surely aimed at the Greek communities in those countries first and foremost and being greek yourself Della you know that THIS is the kind of programme they have come to expect. Its what they do and its the way they operate.

You cant change the way greeks operate - I should know Ive been trying for 15 years!!! lol

For the record - I happen to believe in Remos too!

He blew me away when we went to see him - extremely entertaining.

I just thought that some artists like Helena Paparizou and Sakis Rouvas were big enough outside Greece. I honestly hoped that Sakis wouldn't go on tour "to entertain the Greek communities, that expect that kind of programme".

Oh well, I am a little bit dissapointed that's all.

I understand what you are saying Della. Maybe this tour will be steoping stone to a solo tour for Sakis. Like Chrisanthi said in another link - if the third and fourth generation greek americans take their american friends with them to this concert then Sakis will surely have a whole host of new admirers.

So... the next tour can be solo and if we start saving now, perhaps we can go!!!!

I think Sakis could fill some of the smaller stadiums in Europe already yet there doesnt appear to be a schedule for any european dates !!! boo hoo!!!! Perhaps its time to rectify that!!!!!!

I honestly don't know if Sakis really is big enough outside Greece to make a tour on his own at the moment (with "real" concerts like the one at Lycavitos last September). Of course he has what it takes, but not enough exposure yet, and no world-selling album. I doubt that he's even anywhere near Helena Paparizou, but I realize that my feeling is based on the fact that we hear her all the time here in Sweden since she lives here.

I think that what Sakis now does, that is, goes on tour with Remos and do the usual Greek club thing, is wise. But maybe we would wish him to be a bit bolder? Anyway, aiming for the Greek communities is of course a good option, and like has been said already, if the word is then spread, I think he (and Remos) are definitely preparing ground for something else.

I guess I shouldn't complain. But I can't help but wonder if Sakis is not giving real concerts and is aiming at the greek communities, why did it take so long to organise a tour like this?

I mean I thought that the reason he wasn't appearing abroad more often was because he wanted to be international for real. If Sakis is going on tour for the benefit of Greeks abroad, why didn't he do so last year, or the year before? There were greek communities in the US and Australia back then surely ...

Yeah but in previous years he was performing in Athens all winter wasnt he?

and ok - he tried out in France but the concert there was 99 per cent greeks in the audience eh?

We cant have it both ways. Either we want him here or we want him to be internationally successful.

Now he is taking his first steps and it can lead anywhere he wants it to.

The only thing is that when he is internationally famous he will have the greeks whinging that they never see him.

The poor guy just cant win !

Personally i want him to conquer the world. I believe he can do it and this forthcoming tour is a great way to start.

I think there are a few greek artists who could achieve international acclaim if they really set their hearts on it.

Actually the last time he was appearing regularly was the winter season of 2004 - 2005. The BOOM apearences were quite few as I recal. Besides I wouldn't whine if Sakis was going on international tours. I mean I know it's not easy as going from Athens to Thessaloniki but it wouldn't take that long.

Generally speaking Sakis has been "away" ever sice he released S' eho eroteftei. He was here for a couple of months to appear in BOOM and he has given quite a few concerts but he hasn't had a steady presense in Greece since 2005.

I mean look at what happened now. He released a new DVD/CD and what happened? Did he appear in a club this winter? No. Did he give interviews for the TV? No, just a couple radio interviews, that's all. Did he give interviews at magazines with new photo shoots and everything? No.

He did a radio interview at mad and then on cosmo radio just before the release of his dvd

he gave an interview on mad tv which was recorded on 17th December and shown on Christmas Day

he did a spread in Hello

He did a radio interview at lamspi at 8-00 a.m.!!!! on 17th December

He did a photoshoot for ET weekly

and today we have the cd in ET with a small video of backstage at Lycavitos

That aint bad for a guy who has spent the majority of his time in LA over recent months

and who knows what plans for photoshoots he may have in line before his Valentines concert.

I didnt say you would whinge Della - but there will be MANY who will once he is in LA for longer than a couple of months

and between 2005 and 2007 there were concerts and the shooting of a film

and in the year of 2007 he was putting himself around all over the place - there was hardly a month that we didnt have something from him.

Im not meaning to be argumentative here but I cant see what more the guy can do.

Doesnt he always say he is looking for new challenges?

He's doing a fabulous job of chasing his dreams but he doesnt get ahead of himself - he takes it a step at a time.

Ok I'll stop ranting now and go to sleep!!

Hope to see ya soon Della - dontd forget you still have a present from Em to collect!!!!!!!

I have to say Mal that I agree there. Talking of Helena Paparizou I know she was born in your country but I have seen her perform solo on many occasions. With Sakis he is always with someone but hardly ever on his own. Helena seems to have more platinum records than Sakis even though she released fewer than him.

Why do you need to have these concerns ?

The most important thing is that these guys- Remos and Rouvas are having a big international tour, for EVERYBODY!!!!! And it should be easy to guess that it's not "targeted" to Greek community only !

At least, the shows in Atlantic City (Trump Taj Mahal) and Las Vegas(Las Vegas Hilton) are scheduled in big casinos....not in "convention centers" or "big churches"....so not only the Greeks will be there !!!!
I am also having the feeling that among the audience there will be some "important" people form the "show biz"...Sakis is already having some connections with America !

We always have to make one step at a time !

So please, let's support them by thinking POSITIVE and without making so many speculations !

I sure hope that the tour that he and Remos r planning is 4 everybody 2 c not just the ones in the Greek community. And I'm sure he would do well on his own internationally. It can take some time that 4 sure. But of course already he has attracted many fans outside Greece. So with that it could give him a bit of a boost.
