Andre Rieu is currently touring Australia with a brand new show and is as popular as ever with Australian audiences. Andre Rieu is a classical violinist that uses his own unique style to engage audiences at his shows. Although his adaptation of the classics is criticised by the classical music purists, it can’t be denied that he has created a revival in interest in waltz music. Andre and his orchestra give new life to classical works with their use of colour, costumes and humour as well as dance and guest soloists.
Andre Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra are heading around the country this October with their ‘And The Waltz Goes On’ tour, performing classic waltzes but also a dynamic mix of music genres which can include anything from folk songs to film scores to the Seekers. Combined with Andre’s magnetism and sense of humour is a winning combination for audiences.
Whilst in Australia, Andre has also been doing the rounds of the Aussie TV breakfast shows to promote his concerts, and his new album where he gives ABBA songs the classical touch. Andre Rieu has created a huge body of work over his long career, which include a busy touring schedule, CDs and DVDs. Andre Rieu DVDs are incredibly popular as his fans enjoy reliving the magic of his colourful and dynamic concerts over and over. Andre has a DVD for every occasion, Christmas, New Years Eve, movie scores, romance and the list goes on. He also releases many of his international concerts on DVD so fans can enjoy many different cultures and stunning locations. The best way to get your hands on Andre’s concerts is to get the DVDs online. Andre began 2013 by releasing his Happy Birthday DVD which celebrates his 25th year with the Johann Strauss Orchestra and has also released his Live in Brazil concert, Rieu Royale in honour of the new Dutch king’s coronation, Magic of the Movies of best loved screen hits and most recently Live in Maastricht 7 filmed at his magnificent Dutch castle. So there is plenty of opportunity for his fans to own a piece of Andre Rieu magic!
