André Rieu, the Dutch "King of Waltz", who brings classical music to ordinary people, invites you for his 70th birthday celebration! He will give this amazing birthday show as a part of the 2020 World Tour in ERGO ARENA (Gdańsk/Sopot) on the 20th of June.
Dubbed the Maestro of the Masses (New York Times) and a Weapon of Mass Happiness (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 went on to build 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. And he dreams of performing on the moon one day. The audience can look forward to fantastic melodies from film, musical, opera and operetta as well as traditional music and of course they are invited to waltz the night away 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 Happy Days- CD and Welcome to My World II – DVD). He has reached 30 number 1 chart positions and 500 platinum awards. His YouTube videos reached far over a billion views so far and about 5 million subscribers follow the King of Waltz on Facebook.
André Rieu 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 has two sons and five grandchildren.
