Andre Rieu Tour

André Rieu is a Dutch violinist and conductor who is best known for creating the Johann Strauss Orchestra. Together, Rieu and the orchestra have transformed the atmosphere that surrounds classical and waltz music, turning into a worldwide concert touring act that has achieved as much success as some of the biggest mainstream artists of today. Rieu’s passion for classical music was instilled in him at a young age, as he followed in his father’s footsteps becoming an orchestral conductor. He went on to create the Johann Strauss Orchestra in 1987, playing shows whose size and revenue could only be rivaled by the biggest pop and rock music acts. Crowned the “King of Waltz” by the media, Rieu has sold over 40 million albums worldwide, with more than 700,000 fans attending his performances each year.
