Andre Rieu 2016 UK tour

André Rieu will bring his Johann Strauss Orchestra to the UK in December for an extensive tour, with tickets available this Wednesday.

After another year of chart-topping albums and international arena shows, Dutch violinist and orchestra leader André Rieu will bring his Johann Strauss Orchestra to the UK for a full tour this December.

The tour will see Rieu taking his waltzing orchestra across the UK in a huge stage show that will see over 100 people onstage.

Rieu himself commented: “Every night, everywhere in the world I invite my audience to get up from their seats and dance with us. I can’t tell you how fantastic it is to see people from every continent waltz to our music, whether they’d be young or old."

"You will find every sentiment in a waltz. Happiness, joy, melancholy, and  love. And last but not least, do you know that it is scientifically proven that waltzing is good for your health? A waltz a day keeps the doctor away!”

Tickets for the shows will be available on Wednesday March 16th.
