International superstar André Rieu is thrilled to be returning to Australia with a brand new Arena Tour 2016, performing in Brisbane, Sydney, Newcastle, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth. André Rieu is quite simply a musical phenomenon like no other. The Dutch King of Waltz is the world’s most successful violinist ever having sold a massive 40 million CDs and DVDs. Along with his Johann Strauss Orchestra, André has created a global revival in waltz music, staging spectacular extravaganzas which are second to none.
On stage André’s incredible musical prowess, passion, charisma and humour make for a magical spectacle. His romantic and fun concerts are the only ones where people regularly jump to their feet and dance in the aisles. It’s not uncommon to see devoted Australian fans laughing, weeping, clapping, dancing and embracing as André and his orchestra belt out the most beautiful waltzes, classics from the world of opera, film and folk music, as well as iconic Australian songs like Waltzing Matilda.
Having first picked up a violin at the age of five, Andre Rieu began his fascination with orchestra from a very young age. Fulfilling his childhood dreams, he and his orchestra have performed throughout Europe, in North America, and Asia, and have acquired a number of accolades, including two World Music Awards.
Their recordings have gone Gold and Platinum in worldwide, while he’s considered a music icon in his home country of the Netherlands.
