One of the most popular live acts in the world, the King of the Waltz André Rieu has announced that his 2018 Maastricht concerts will be screened in over 2000 cinemas worldwide across the weekend of 28th – 29th July, as he performs his hometown shows this year with a celebration of love.
‘Amore, My Tribute to Love’, is the renowned violinist's tribute to his love for music, and his love for both of his families; his wife and children, and of course for his Johann Strauss Orchestra, who he has performed with for over 30 years. It follows on from the release of his album ‘Amore’ last year, which features his own versions of classic love songs, from the
worlds of popular and classical music.
For this very special concert, André will be offering a lucky winner the ultimate musical love dedication; all cinema-goers will be invited to dedicate one of André’s waltz’s to their loved ones. André will personally select a dedication and he will announce the winner during the concert on both nights.
The unforgettable concerts that take place in André’s hometown of Maastricht in the Netherlands are a sight to behold. Set against the incredible backdrop of the medieval town square, fans flock annually from all corners of the world to watch André perform with his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, as well as sopranos, tenors, and some very
special guests. The concerts are packed full of humour, fun and emotion for all ages.
This annual celebration of music that is like no other is also experienced every year in full by hundreds of thousands of fans across the world from the comfort of their local cinema, also treated to some very special behind the scenes extras.
Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins hosts the presentation, interviewing fans and soaking up the joyous atmosphere that bursts right through the cinema screen – as well as catching an exclusive chat with André the moment he steps off stage!
