By 2 months ago

PYX LAX, the biggest selling band in Greek History, is counting the days, excited about coming to Australia to perform for its Greek fans.

"They can't wait for their Australian tour. They're  looking forward to performing for the Greek Australian diaspora!" said a spokesperson for promoters Giant Entertainment of the band that performed with the likes of Sting, Eric Burdon, Gordon Gano, Marc Almond and Steve Wynn.

Many Greek acts have found a 'home' with the global Greek diaspora, many of which though tend to blend into each other without standing out with a unique music identity. Fortunately for Pyx Lax, the musical experience they provide is most likely something most Greeks of the diaspora have not experienced unless they were in Greece in packed stadiums witnessing the renaissance of Greek music through them.

Pyx Lax is a voice and soul of a generation comes to Australia with a repertoire of songs which changed the musical landscape of Greece. Just like the Beatles changed western music, Pyx Lax changed Greek music! Forever!

In their time, Pyx Lax were considered to be one of the most popular bands in Greece. Sotiria Malfa, a Greek critic wrote that "The stamp of Pyx Lax on Greek music of the end of the 90s and the beginning of the 00s is something more than profound.

The band has been recognized for both their longevity and the number of records they sold, as well as "the unique feeling which was created between Pyx Lax and their beloved public.

Testament to their greatness is the multitude of Pyx Lax tribute bands around the world.

Pyx Lax is more than just an influential band, it's the soul, the emotion, and the voice of a generation, who seamlessly move between Rock, Traditional and Folk music whilst giving new life to the generations before them.

With over 20 million CD sales and the biggest grossing concert tour in Greek history, Pyx Lax bring to Australian capital cities a concert of epic proportions.

The song list is too huge to mention, their energy is too powerful to ignore, and their stage presence is too eclectic to disregard.

They are simply PYX LAX.
