Andre Rieu has announced a new UK and Ireland 2018 tour.
As has become tradition, the Dutch violin star will conclude his annual world tour with a series of Christmas concerts.
The so-called “King of Waltz” tours with his 50-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra and has sold more then 40 million albums worldwide. His concerts attract 700,000 fans a year and mix classical pieces, film scores, folk songs and of course waltzes.
“Spending the Pre-Christmas season in the UK and Ireland with such fantastic fans makes me feel very grateful and pleased every year” said Rieu.
“People write to me, telling me that it takes them two weeks to get back to normal after one of our concerts. It is simply fantastic to feel this energy and joy every evening.”
