Dubbed the Maestro of the Masses (New York Times) and a Weapon of Mass Happiness (The Spectator), André Rieu returns with his 70-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, the largest private orchestra in the world, the Platin Tenors and many international soloists.
André Rieu went on to build an empire out of a worldwide classical music touring act. Around 110 people go on the road with him each year. In 2017/2018 his U.S. tour drew over 150,000 fans, and he dreams of performing on the moon one day. The audience can look forward to fantastic melodies from film, musical, opera and operetta as well as traditional music. The audience is invited to waltz the night away in an unforgettable evening of music and dance.
André Rieu firmly believes that classical music is made for everybody to enjoy, not just for the elite. At his concerts the audience will laugh, weep, sing and dance in the aisles. André Rieu has sold more than 40 million CDs and DVDs (Happy Days – CD/DVD and Christmas Down Under – Live from Sydney - DVD). He has reached 30 #1 chart positions and 500 platinum awards. His YouTube videos have reached over a billion views and his Facebook has reached over four million followers.
