Known to millions around the world as the “King of the Waltz,” André Rieu is coming to Las Vegas’ T-Mobile Arena this Spring! The Dutch violinist and conductor has been fascinated by the world of music since his childhood. For the last 20 years, André has invested his time and energy in music, selling over 40 million CDs and DVDs. André Rieu is one of the biggest solo male touring artists in the world, outselling mega artists including Coldplay, AC/DC, and even Bruce Springsteen! He has created a global revival in waltz music with the help of his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, which happens to be the largest private orchestra in the world.
Rieu’s sizable discography includes recognizable versions of classical works, folk music, pop tunes, notable pieces from famous soundtracks, and iconic musical theater songs. He realizes that modern concerts tend to create a barrier between those who create the music, and those who enjoy the music. André’s dream is to make classical music accessible for everyone. Along with his orchestra, Rieu actively attempts to bridge the gap by bringing characteristics of original and well-known melodies to life, providing his audience with an extravagant performance every show.
André Rieu’s orchestra has helped him create an ocean of emotions for audiences to experience during any live show, turning classical and waltz music into a worldwide concert touring act that is nothing short of successful. His concerts are the perfect mix of thrilling and romantic to festive, full of emotional melodies complemented with surprises such as balloons, beautiful soloists, and more! Fans at any André Rieu event are often seen laughing, clapping, weeping, dancing, but most of all, embracing the incredible sounds that radiate throughout the room.
