Produced by City Drive Group, the series features some of today’s most renowned artists, performing in some of the most legendary landmarks in the world.
Producer Daniel Catullo, CEO of City Drive Group and the documentary’s crew visited Athens, while working on an episode, which will feature American rock band Foo Fighters and its concert, due to take place in July at the Herod Atticus Theater, an announcement said.
During their stay, they met with Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura and requested her contribution in the process of filming in several locations around Greece.
