LAS VEGAS (October 8, 2019) – Global phenomenon André Rieu, the “King of Waltz” who has made classical music accessible to mainstream audiences, will bring his Johann Strauss Orchestra back to the USA in 2020. Audiences can look forward to five magical nights in Phoenix, San Diego, Las Vegas, Anaheim (LA) and Oakland in March 2020. André Rieu will perform at T-Mobile Arena Friday, March 20, 2020.
Tickets starting at $65 (not including applicable service charges) go on sale Saturday, Oct. 12 at 10 a.m. PT at www.axs.com.
Dubbed the Maestro of the Masses (New York Times) and a Weapon of Mass Happiness (The Spectator), André Rieu returns with his 70-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, the largest private orchestra in the world, the Platin Tenors and many international soloists.
André Rieu went on to build an empire out of a worldwide classical music touring act. Approximately 110 people go on the road with him each year. In 2017 and 2018, his U.S. tour drew more than 150,000 fans. And he dreams of performing on the moon one day. The audience can look forward to fantastic melodies from film, musicals, operas and operettas as well as traditional music—and of course they are invited to waltz the night away to an unforgettable evening of music and dance. Rieu firmly believes that classical music is made for everybody to enjoy, not just for an elite. At his concerts, guests will laugh, weep, sing and dance in the aisles.
André Rieu has sold more than 40 million CDs and DVDs (his new album is Happy Days – available on CD/DVD and his new DVD is Christmas Down Under – Live from Sydney). He has had 30 No. 1 chart positions and received 500 platinum awards.
