International Superstar André Rieu and his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra will return to KeyBank Center on September 29, 2018 at 8:00pm.
André Rieu is quite simply a musical phenomenon like no other. Each year his amazing live concerts attract more than 600,000 fans and outsell mega artists such as Bruno Mars, AC/DC and Rihanna in the Billboard’s Top 10. The iconic Dutch violinist, conductor and founder of the Johann Strauss Orchestra has sold a massive 40 million CDs and DVDs and notched 30 Number 1 chart positions. After the incredible success of his 2017 US tour, 2018 will bring André back to the United States and Canada in an 11- date arena tour.
On stage André’s incredible musical prowess, passion and charisma make for a magical spectacle. His romantic and fun shows are the only ones where people regularly jump to their feet and dance in the aisles. It’s not uncommon to see devoted American fans laughing, weeping, clapping, dancing and embracing when they listen to the beautiful waltzes, film scores, spirituals, musicals, folk songs and marches and André’s precious Stradivarius violin from 1732; his shows are a perfect mix of thrilling, romantic, festive and emotional melodies combined with surprises, balloons, beautiful soloists and of course André’s great sense of humor.
“I’m so excited to return to the USA and Canada in September.” says André Rieu. “People write to me, telling me that it takes them two weeks to get back to normal after one of our concerts. It is simply fantastic to feel this energy and joy every evening.”
André and his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra (the largest private orchestra in the world) created a global revival in waltz music, staging spectacular extravaganzas which are second to none. André’s concerts are a feast not only for the ears but also the eyes! Having received over 500 Platinum Awards, three Classical Brit Awards for “Album of the Year” and billions of Youtube views, André is one of the biggest touring artists in the world. His album “Shall We Dance” is out on Decca Gold.
