For over three decades, Dutch violin maestro Andre Rieu has dazzled audiences with his modern take on waltz music. Forty million records are testament to that but nothing compares to seeing the King of Waltz and the Johann Strauss Orchestra perform live in concert.
When Rieu goes on tour the whole world takes notice. His concerts are something of a phenomenon and have been known to outsell the likes of Bruce Springsteen and Justin Bieber.
Yet, despite his global success, Rieu never forgets his beloved hometown Maastricht, and every year performs a series of special summer outdoor concerts set in the magical and romantic surroundings of Vrijthof Square.
Rieu’s homecoming concerts are some of the biggest events of the year and tickets are the hottest about.
Like all Rieu concerts they’re lavish affairs where the joyous music, performed by his 60 piece Johann Strauss Orchestra and special guests, takes centre stage and is polished off with plenty of glitz that we have grown to love from this flamboyant showman.
The concerts have become an annual tradition in the town for over ten years and are broadcast live on cinema screens around Europe, in Belgium, Denmark, Germany, Finland and Romania.
His homecoming concert in 2015 saw Rieu claim reign over the UK box office after it smashed records for a music concert show on the big screen, breaking the £1million sales barrier.
But why settle for watching it on the big screen when you can be there in person with National Holidays?
A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, you will be swept away by the unique atmosphere of this concert as you join fans from every corner of the globe to see Rieu perform his trademark waltzes and lively musical scores in his hometown at this truly magical setting.
