Dalaras target of abuse at concert

Greek singer George Dalaras was on the receiving end of verbal abuse as well as bottles of water, coffee cups and yogurts during a concert on Monday night.

Billed as a solidarity concert, the admission-free event took place at Ilion, western Athens.

Dalaras, a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador, remained on stage as members of the audience shouted ?traitor? and threw various objects in his direction.

?I?m here because I want to and because I believe actions speak louder than words,? said the singer at the end of the concert.

The artist is a veteran performer with an impressive resume in charity work. His wife, Anna Dalara, is a PASOK deputy and former deputy employment minister responsible for immigration issues.
