On the day he returns to Portugal for another series of three sold-out concerts, André Rieu announces another date at Altice Arena, 11th. The Dutchman will also perform in Lisbon on November 28th and tickets are already on sale.
"I was touched by the fantastic reception of my Portuguese fans, they opened their hearts to us and I continue to receive many sympathetic letters and messages from people who would like to be at our concerts," the musician said in a statement.
André Rieu has become the year "artist in his own name with more consecutive concerts at Altice Arena, more than Roberto Carlos, Adele, Metallica, Tony Carreira, Madonna, Muse, Roger Waters, Michael Bublé and U2", says the promoter.
The 69-year-old musician, violinist, conductor and founder of the Johann Strauss Orchestra, has sold over 40 million CDs and DVDs throughout his career and his live concerts attract more than 600,000 people a year, selling more tickets than Bruno Mars, AC / DC or Rihanna. "
In the spectacles, the public can count, besides the music, with "very humor". "There are lots of jokes," he shared, considering that "there is not enough humor in the world, in life," and that "many problems with humor can be solved."
André Rieu also said that those who go to their concerts "know that they will have a night that they will never forget, and that they can open their hearts".
We travel around the world [eu e a minha orquestra], because we open our hearts and we hope people open their hearts, "he said, noting that" music unites people. "
In addition to playing and directing the show, the violinist is still responsible for the design of the wardrobe. The concerts in March – from 13 to 16 and from 29 to 31 (already sold out) – and 22 and 28 November are part of the world tour of 2019.
