2015 has got off to a flying start. In January and February, André gives a series of concerts in Germany and Austria.
In March a series of concerts in France is planned. Besides hard work, there is also thankfully time for a delicious glass of bubbles in Epernay, the capital of Champagne country.
Then in May, different countries are on the concert agenda: Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Poland.
In June, André tours through Romania with the Johann Strauss Orchestra. Within fifteen hours a record 33,000 tickets are sold out! During his tour, André makes five thousands tickets available for a symbolic amount. The revenue is donated to UNICEF and the Save the Children Fund. André has a warm heart for children.
In July it is time for the famous Vrijthof concerts. Cosy summer evening concerts full of beautiful music, special guests and a fireworks show. This year too presents a grand spectacle.
In August, the warm and enthusiastic audiences in Chile and Peru enjoy the performances of André and his Johann Strauss Orchestra to the full. The South Americans love a party!
During his visit to beautiful Rome at the end of September, he receives the ‘Jubilee Award’, thanks to the gigantic sales of 35 million CDs and DVDs. While in Rome, his new album ‘Roman Holiday’ is announced. A brand new CD full of well-known Italian melodies, such as ‘Mattinata’ and of course ‘Arrivederci Roma’.
October is also a busy, but cosy month. André tours through Mexico. Apart from the concerts, there is also another (literal) peak: an excursion to Teotihuacan, the oldest city with two world-famous pyramids.
André rounds off 2015 with different concerts in Europe. During the last months of this calendar year, people in, among other places, the UK, France, South Africa, Canada and the United States may (again) enjoy the cosy Vrijthof concerts in various cinemas. The cinema-goers are also treated to an exclusive interview by the English journalist Charlotte Hawkins. She interviews André immediately after his concert.
