André Rieu

Violin superstar André Rieu has made classical music accessible to millions around the world and has turned the waltz into an international sensation, recently extending his record as the highest grossing classical artist in Billboard’s Boxscore history. Further, he continues to be the classical act with the highest attendance regularly outselling the world’s top pop and rock stars. Rieu has had soccer crowds swaying to Shostakovich and has sold over 40 million albums. His romantic and joyful programs include a mixture of light classics, waltzes, music from film and opera as well as pop songs, performed by his Johann Strauss Orchestra, the largest private orchestra in the world.

His concerts are also a visual treat, from the sight of Rieu and his musicians entering through the crowd and up on to the stage at the start, to the lavish costumes and the vast screen behind the orchestra displaying beautiful imagery appropriate to each song. Together with his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, André Rieu performs to over half a million people each year, establishing him as one of the top ten touring acts in the world. His YouTube videos have reached far over a billion views. 8 million fans follow the “King of Waltz” on Facebook and 700,000 on Instagram.

André Rieu was born in Maastricht, Netherlands, and lives in a small castle from 1452 where the real D’Artagnan was said to have had his last breakfast before he died in battle serving Louis XIV. It’s a castle that André Rieu as a child used to visit to take piano lessons, but he dreamed of buying and renovating it, which he did about 20 years ago.  The castle is surrounded by a beautiful garden and greenhouse, and has become a lovely place to relax from touring around the world.
