There’s certainly no better motto than ‘Happy Days are Here Again’! In July 2022, the “King of Waltz” and his beloved Johann Strauss Orchestra finally returned to the Vrijthof square in Maastricht to enchant an audience of 180.000 people from more than 100 countries for a record 15 concerts! No other artist can make an audience laugh, move them to tears and pull on their heartstrings quite like the King of Waltz.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas trees are warming, treats are the sweetest and anyone under the mistletoe gets a kiss. But the holiday season wouldn’t be perfect without the delightful music of André Rieu! The “King of Waltz” is thrilled to announce his brand-new Christmas album, SILVER BELLS, which will be released worldwide on 18. November 2022. The CD & FULL DVD with the 2019 Christmas concert is expected to become the dream gift to give and receive this holiday season, bringing new joy and light to Rieu fans around the world.
André Rieu is excited to present his new album “Happy Together”, released on 19 November 2021. “Happy Together” is a wonderful and emotional “ode to joy”, celebrating the return to life, happiness and love – a musical reminder of the joy of being together with friends and family – now that the world is opening up once more.
"Happy Together" spreads joy and shows how happy André and the Johann Strauss Orchestra were to finally be able to make music together again. Making music is and will always be their passion. The album and accompanying DVD has something for everyone – from "You are my Sunshine", “La Bamba”, "Happy Together", "Valencia", “Circus Renz”, “Estudiantina” to "When I’m 64".
Myself and the Johann Strauss Orchestra are so happy together. We have so much fun! In what other concert would you see the brass section performing and eating schnitzel at the same time? Or the male voice choir arriving on stage in a gondola?! You can see all this at my concerts and on this DVD. So let's be Happy Together!
“Magical Maastricht” is available in stores from 28 May 2021. Order your copy at Forward Merch and let your hearts be filled with love, hope and joy with this delightful DVD by superstar André Rieu!
As we enjoy spring with the beautiful music of André Rieu, the King of Waltz will make us waltz into summer with his lovely DVD – “Magical Maastricht”. Together with his wife Marjorie, André personally selected his most impressive and romantic performances from the last 15 years and will bring the joyous atmosphere of his amazing summer open-air concerts straight into your living rooms with this 145 min long wonderful DVD.
Watch some of his most uplifting and moving performances, which have provided comfort to millions during the COVID-19 pandemic, such as You Raise Me Up, Volare, You’ll never walk alone, Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again, Highland Cathedral, Amigos para siempre and of course The Blue Danube. André always chooses songs with his heart and he definitely knows how to move yours.
Relive André’s most spectacular performances such as Lara’s Theme from Doctor Zhivago, with the participation of 300 professional dancing couples, or the Parade of the Charioteers from the movie Ben Hur. Get your living room ready for a party and put your dancing shoes on because André invited lots of superstars to perform their greatest hits! David Hasselhoff with Looking for Freedom, Los Del Rio with Macarena, Jermaine Jackson with Smile and Trini Lopez with La Bamba – if they won’t make you shake it off, nothing will.
André Rieu says: “Looking back at these concerts we laughed and we cried and I’m sure you will go through the same emotions. „Magical Maastricht” is full of nostalgia and makes me want to jump on stage right now! Music brings people together and I’m so happy we can spend a few hours together this way and rejoice in music until we’ll meet again!
