According to Billboard magazine, André Rieu is the world’s most successful male touring artist.

Being a natural showman, Rieu gets the audience, of all ages, out of their chair and on their feet, dancing, clapping and laughing. Rieu’s concerts are extravaganzas that attract thousands of fans a night. What’s unique is that Rieu, who is fluent in many languages, always addresses the audience in their native language.

Rieu, who plays a 1732 Stradivarius, is passionate about music and is dedicated to introducing children to the world of classical music. Being an ambassador for classical music, that’s what I’ve done the last 30 years, and that’s what I’ll continue doing the next 30 years,” states Rieu.
