CONGRATULATIONS! in association with the Technopolis Group are delighted to offer five free tickets to see YIANNIS KOTSIRAS live at the Technopolis Open-Air Theatre, Ammoudara, Heraklion on Saturday 8th September.

Congratulations to our winners Nikos Anamourlou, Gunilla Loof, Niki Gavrilaki, Stephanie Krips and Idomeneas Maronikolakis whose names were first out of the hat in our prize draw and each win free entrance to the concert.

The answer to our question "In what year was Yiannis Kotsiras born?" was "1969".

Many thanks to everyone else who entered our contest, we had many correct answers, but there could only be five winners so better luck next time folks!

Yiannis Kotsiras was born in Athens and began his musical career in 1990 singing rebetika and laika. In 1996 he released his first album 'Innocent Guilty' and has since released a further 7 studio albums, 2 live albums, and various covers of classic songs. He also sang the official song of the 2004 Olympic Games 'Pass The Flame' which he performed live at the opening ceremony in Athens.
