The Greek-American musician Yanni will arive in Egypt on October 26.
Following his arrival, Yanni will shoot a clip to promote tourism in Egypt based on an agreement with the Tourism Ministry. The clip will be used by 24,000 Sony stores for the next six months, according to concert organizer Ashraf Haridy.
Haridy said negotiations with Yanni for the concert took five years to conclude due to Egypt's unstable political situation.

The Interior Ministry will secure the two events, he said.
More than 70 percent of the tickets have been sold so far, according to Haridy.
