André Rieu is back in the United Kingdom at the end of his world tour! Together with his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra and many soloist André Rieu will give you what you've come to expect from his performances: the maestro conducting his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra and playing his world-famous Stradivarius violin to create a colourful concert full of surprises. The repertoire ranges from romantic, emotional ballads to the most gorgeous and celebrated waltzes.
Experience the magic of André Rieu at a festive and memorable evening and come see why André Rieu is one of the most popular live acts in the world!
André Rieu is quite simply a musical phenomenon like
no other, having sold a massive 40 million CDs and DVDs and
notched 30 Nr. 1 chart positions worldwide.
Along with his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra (the
largest private orchestra in the world), André has
created a global revival in waltz music, staging spectacular
extravaganzas which are second to none. Having received over
500 Platinum Awards, three Classical Brit Awards for
Album of the Year and billions of Youtube views,
André is one of the biggest solo male touring artists in
the world. Each year his passionate live shows attract more
than 600,000 fans and outsell mega artists such as Coldplay,
AC/DC and Bruce Springsteen.
"My concerts are about joy and love!" says André Rieu. "We should make decisions in our lives with our hearts, not our heads. People often ask me 'how do you choose your program?' - the answer is: with my heart. I love Johann Strauss but I am also fascinated by Andrew Lloyd Webber or Bruce Springsteen. We should stop limiting ourselves with categories and boundaries - not just in terms of music but in our lives in general" - says André Rieu.
On stage André's incredible musical prowess, passion and charisma make for a magical spectacle. His romantic and fun concerts are the only ones where people regularly jump to their feet and dance in the aisles. It's not uncommon to see devoted American fans laughing, weeping, clapping, dancing and embracing when they listen to the beautiful waltzes, film scores, spirituals, musicals, folk songs and marches and André's precious Stradivarius violin from 1732; his concerts are a perfect mix of thrilling, romantic, festive and emotional melodies combined with surprises, balloons, beautiful soloists and of course André's great sense of humor. It's all about emotions!
