André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra are postponing their UK/Ireland tour to September because of the coronavirus pandemic. The tour, which was originally expected to kick off in Belfast on 16. April was set to stop in eight cities. André Rieu says: “It is with a heavy heart that we have to postpone our UK/Ireland tour, but we are already looking forward to seeing all of you in September! The well-being of our beloved fans, musicians and crew is always our top priority. We have worked very hard to reschedule all dates, as we cannot wait to come back to the UK/Ireland. I hope you will join us in September for a wonderful carefree evening full of music, dance and romance and would like to thank you for waiting just a little longer. Please stay safe and healthy! Much love!”
André Rieu, the Dutch “King of Waltz” who has made classical music accessible to ordinary people, will bring his Johann Strauss Orchestra back to the UK.
Dubbed the Maestro of the Masses (New York Times) and a Weapon of Mass Happiness (The Spectator), André Rieu returns with his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, the largest private orchestra in the world, the Platin Tenors and many international soloists. In 2018 André performed for 100.000 UK/Ireland fans!
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. 2018 was the Dutch violinist and conductor’s most successful year, with more than 700,000 tickets sold worldwide. 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 and of course they are 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 an elite. At his concerts everything is allowed: laughing, weeping, singing, dancing in the aisles. Rieu has sold more than 40 million CDs and DVDs (his current albums are Romantic Moments II - CD and Love in Maastricht – DVD). He has reached 30 number 1 chart positions and 500 platinum awards. His YouTube videos reached far over a billion views so far and 4.5 million subscribers follow the King of Waltz on Facebook.
