A musical phenomenon, André Rieu is unlike anything else in the entertainment world. Music fans can expect the experience of a lifetime when they attend the only classical concerts where the audience jump to their feet and dance in the aisles.
Having already created an international revival in waltz music with his spellbinding musical extravaganzas, André Rieu very quickly won the hearts of the British public with the release of his album ‘Forever Vienna’ which smashed chart records by reaching No.2 of the UK Pop Charts as well as going straight in at No.1 of the Classical Charts.
At last, fans across the country can see for themselves just why André Rieu is the biggest solo male touring artist in the world. Conducting the Johann Strauss Orchestra with his violin bow – just like the composer himself – Rieu’s onstage charisma and rock-star demeanour make his live shows simply irresistible.
