André Rieu Brings His 2018 Maastricht Concert Event To U.S. Theaters Nationwide
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 17, 2018) –– One of the most popular live acts in the world, Dutch violinist and concert leader, André Rieu, has announced that the film of his 2018 Maastricht concert will premiere in U.S. theaters nationwide for one night only on Tuesday, August 28 as he performs his hometown Maastricht concert with a celebration of love.
Known as “The King of Waltz”, André and his privately owned 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra have toured together for a record breaking 30 years, frequently outperforming major acts like Eric Clapton, Santana, and Taylor Swift in international concert ticket sales. He has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide and his popularity in the US is growing rapidly following his recent national sold out tour.
‘Amore, My Tribute to Love’, is André’s testament to his love for music and his love for both of his families; his wife and children, and his Johann Strauss Orchestra. The concert follows last year’s release of the album, ‘Amore’, which topped the U.S. classical music charts and features André’s renditions of classic love songs from the worlds of popular and classical music.
For this very special concert event, André is offering one lucky winner the ultimate musical love dedication – all U.S. moviegoers are invited to dedicate one of André’s waltzes to a special loved one. André will personally select a dedication and announce the winner during the concert. To submit your dedication, please visit: https://intl.andreincinemas.com/dedications/
The unforgettable concert that takes place in André’s hometown of Maastricht in the Netherlands is a sight to behold. Set against the incredible backdrop of the medieval town square, fans come annually from all corners of the world to watch André perform with his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, as well as sopranos, tenors, and some very special guests. The concerts are packed full of humor, fun, and emotion for all ages.
André’s annual celebration of music––unlike any other––is also experienced every year by hundreds of thousands of fans in movie theaters around the world. His music event films have broken box office records across Europe with movie audiences specially treated to behind-the-scenes extras, enhancing their concert experience.
On welcoming moviegoers to his hometown of Maastricht for ‘Amore, My Tribute to Love’, André said: “To be able to bring the concert from my beautiful hometown of Maastricht direct to movie theaters for my fans every year is such a thrill! My orchestra and I get so excited about our romantic open-air shows, it’s just magical to bring it to the big screen.
Music is, as they say, the food of love! That is what this show is all about, all types of love. So, we thought what a wonderful way it would be to celebrate this with my fans than to invite them to submit their dedications for their loved ones, which I shall read out before a very special song in Maastricht that they will see wherever they may be watching across the U.S.!
I invite you to join me and my orchestra once again for a fantastic adventure; filled with wonderful music and of course: AMORE.”
André Rieu’s 2018 Maastricht Concert, ‘Amore, My Tribute to Love’, distributed by Piece of Magic Entertainment, will screen across the U.S. on Tuesday, August 28.
