André Rieu is returning to the UK’s arenas for his 2017 tour, and we’ve got an exclusive pre-sale link for his Leeds show on 15 December - they’ll go on sale from the link below at 9AM on 18 May.
For his 2017 tour, André will be returning to the arenas of the UK and Ireland with his epic spectacle of a stage show, inspired in part by contemporary artists.
Today, 18 May, he's just announced that he'll also be performing in Leeds First Direct Arena on 15 December. And you can buy tickets exclusively right here, before anyone else!
“My concerts are about joy and love! We should make decisions in our lives with our hearts, not our heads. People often ask me ‘how do you choose your program?’ – the answer is: with my heart. I love Johann Strauss but I am also fascinated by Andrew Lloyd Webber or Bruce Springsteen. We should stop limiting ourselves with categories and boundaries – not just in terms of music but in our lives in general.”
Please note, pre-sale is no longer available and tickets for all dates can now be bought direct from André Rieu's website here

The show is a record-breaking event in music event cinema, having grossed more than Take That and One Direction. Fans can find their local cinema screening by visiting andreincinemas.com .
