Global phenomenon André Rieu, the “King of Waltz” who has made classical music accessible to ordinary people, will bring his Johann Strauss Orchestra back to the USA in 2020 and has announced his first tour dates including stops at Tampa, Sunrise and Orlando. Audiences can then expect a magical visit to Atlanta at the award-winning State Farm Arena on Sunday, March 15, 2020. Tickets starting from $65 (+ fees) and Travel Packages are available on www.andrerieu.com from Saturday, Oct. 5, 2019, at 10:00 AM.
Dubbed the Maestro of the Masses (New York Times) and a Weapon of Mass Happiness (The Spectator), André Rieu returns with his 70-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, the largest private orchestra in the world, the Platin Tenors and many international soloists.
André Rieu went on to build an empire out of a worldwide classical music-touring act. Around 110 people go on the road with him each year. In 2017/2018, his USA tour drew over 150,000 fans, and he dreams of performing on the moon one day. The audience can look forward to fantastic melodies from film, musical, opera and operetta as well as traditional music, and, of course, they are invited to waltz the night away in an unforgettable evening of music and dance.
André Rieu firmly believes that classical music is made for everybody to enjoy, not just for an elite. At his concerts, you can see the audience laughing, weeping, singing, and dancing in the aisles. Rieu has sold more than 40 million CDs and DVDs (his new albums are Happy Days – CD/DVD and Christmas Down Under – Live from Sydney – DVD). He has reached 30 number 1 chart positions and 500 platinum awards. His YouTube videos reached far over a billion views so far and about 5 million subscribers follow the King of Waltz on Facebook.
André Rieu has been married for over 40 years and lives with his wife Marjorie on a romantic castle from 1452 in his hometown Maastricht in the Netherlands. The couple has two sons and five grandchildren.
