André Rieu, the Dutch “King of Waltz” who has made classical music accessible to the general public, will bring his Johann Strauss Orchestra back to Nottingham next year.
The tour will be playing eight magical nights throughout April and May 2020; performing at Motorpoint Arena Nottingham on May 7, 2020. Tickets will go on sale on Friday 17 May 2019, at 10am.
Dubbed the Maestro of the Masses by The New York Times and a Weapon of Mass Happiness by The Spectator, André Rieu returns with his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra – the largest private orchestra in the world, the Platin Tenors and many international soloists.
André Rieu has built an empire out of a worldwide classical music touring act. Around 110 people go on the road with him each year. 2018 was the Dutch violinist and conductor’s most successful year, with more than 700,000 tickets sold worldwide, including a date in Nottingham.
Audiences can look forward to fantastic melodies from film, musical, opera and operetta as well as traditional music, including the waltz, 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 everything is allowed: laughing, weeping, singing, dancing in the aisles.
Rieu has sold more than 40 million CDs and DVDs (his current albums are Romantic Moments II – CD and Love in Maastricht – DVD). He has reached 30 #1 chart positions and 500 platinum awards. His YouTube videos have reached over a billion views so far and 4.5 million subscribers follow the King of Waltz on Facebook.
He has been married for over 40 years and lives with his wife Marjorie in a romantic castle from 1452 in his hometown of Maastricht in the Netherlands. The couple have two sons and five grandchildren.
