Jose Carreras&Sumi Jo Live in Athens 2005

The original anouncement was that the two stars of the concert would be Agnes Baltsa and Jose Carreras but just a few days before the concert Agnes claimed personal reasons and didnt appear. The rumours say that Agnes didnt want to appear in the vast Odeon of Herodes Atticus- an open air roman odeon- using microphones but Jose would only appear with microphone. Well, the solution was given by the replacement of Agnes by Sumi Jo. The concert was a huge success and the two singers payed off the public's adoration with 8 (!!!!!) encore!
