André Rieu - Tour 2020

There is hardly a world star who delights fans of every age group and nationality worldwide as much as André Rieu.

The charismatic Dutchman has been touring the world with his orchestra for over thirty years! Now he has a very special surprise in his luggage for his German fans: On 1 October he celebrates his 70th birthday and from January on goes on a big birthday tour all over Germany. The fans can look forward to sixteen romantic, festive concert evenings with a very special programme consisting of the most beautiful titles from film, musical, opera and of course many wonderful waltzes.

André Rieu: "I am very much looking forward to this very special tour and to celebrating my birthday with my fans all over Germany. For me and my orchestra this tour is something very special. Playing in Germany, where my career started many years ago, is like coming home. I invite you all to experience a magical, unforgettable evening with us".

André Rieu is firmly convinced that classical music was written not only for an elite, but for everyone. The New York Times therefore rightly celebrates him as the "maestro of the masses". In Germany he is accompanied by his 60-strong Johann Strauss Orchestra (the largest private orchestra in the world by the way), his choir, international sopranos and of course the Platinum Tenors. 2018 was the most successful year for the Dutch violinist and conductor, with more than 700,000 tickets sold worldwide - more than 600,000 tickets have already been sold for his current world tour in 2019 - Rieu will be performing this year in the Netherlands, Colombia, Chile, Spain and Portugal, among others. He dreams of one day appearing on the moon.

André Rieu has sold more than 40 million copies of CD´s and DVD´s (his current albums are "Romantic Moments II" CD and "Love in Maastricht" DVD). He has also reached 30 number 1 chart positions and received 500 platinum awards. The star violinist has also been very successful in the social media sector. His YouTube videos have so far reached well over a billion views. On Facebook, the Waltz King has over 4.5 million subscribers and his postings reach more interactions than Barack Obama or Justin Bieber, so that the FAZ dedicated an article to him in April: "How violinist André Rieu became an Instagram star".

In private, André Rieu has been married for over 40 years and lives with his wife Marjorie in a romantic castle dating from 1452 in his Dutch hometown of Maastricht. The couple has two sons and five grandchildren.
