Following the postponement of his 2010 tour due to viral infection of the vestibular nerve that left him unable to carry out his tour commitments, André Rieu has now fully recovered and is currently on an incredible world tour. Touring through Europe, England and South Africa, the Celebration of Music Tour will open in Australia 3 May.
His recovery from the viral infection took months of rest and rehabilitation before being given the all clear to perform again. Key to his recovery was some exercises that he received from an Australian fan who had suffered a similar infection. By following these along with plenty of rest, Andre is now in great health, however to keep his immune system in check, he continues to implement the exercises as a part of his daily ritual.

Currently on tour in Europe, André said “I received so many letters from doctors, physicians and fans with suggestions on how to get better. I read them all! It wasn’t until I read the letter from Bill Henshall in Perth and implemented his suggested exercises that I noticed it was really getting better every day! Without his help I would probably still be desperate for the right treatment!”
The Celebration of Music Tour promises to be an outstanding and unforgettable performance; “I am so excited to be back on stage, doing what I love most, playing beautiful music, together with my orchestra, for all my fans! The audience can expect a night they will never forget, full of beautiful waltzes, the Platin Tenors, our sopranos; Mirusia from Australia, Carmen from Brazil, Kimmy from South Africa and last but not least… The Seekers!” said André.
In anticipation for Andre’s forthcoming Australian tour, a very special CD as well as DVD titled “Moonlight Serenade” has been prepared for his legion of fans. Both Stvdio and Ovation will broadcast André TV specials from now, through the month of his tour, and beyond. Arguably no other artist has ever registered Andre’s Australian sales success on CD and DVD and in 2010 he passed the milestone of over 3 million units sold. The appetite of his fans for new recordings is simply amazing and with new programs in production from touring in Mexico and a new Christmas 2011 spectacular also in pre-production there is plenty more to come.
