DANCING IN THE AISLES

“An Evening with Andre Rieu” will give fans what they’ve come to expect
from Rieu’s North American performances: the maestro conducting his 60-piece
Johann Strauss Orchestra and playing his world-famous Stradivarius violin to
create a celebratory atmosphere, where fans are encouraged to get out of
their seats and waltz in the aisles.

UNFORGETTABLE NIGHT

Top worldwide press outlets have taken notice, with Britain’s Daily
Telegraph describing the concerts as follows: “Rows of ordinary people who go
to his shows with no intention of dancing invariably find themselves swaying
and mesmerized, pied piper-style, into waltzing.”

“My main goal, every concert, is for people to have an unforgettable
night,” says Andre Rieu. “I like to talk to my audience, interact with them
and look them in the eyes. People can expect a colorful concert, with
beautiful melodies, waltzes, surprises, balloons, the tenors and our lovely
sopranos from South Africa and Australia.”

BEST-SELLING LIVE ACT

Known as “The King of Waltz,” Andre Rieu is one of the best-selling live
acts in the world. He was ranked as the #1 male performer of 2009, and earned
one of the top-grossing tours of 2010, despite the three-month postponement
of concerts in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand due to a viral
infection.

Rieu has sold more than 30 million albums globally, and has broken all
classical concert records, packing stadiums and arenas with more than 700,000
adoring fans each year.

ROYAL PERFORMANCES

His latest album, Forever Vienna, reached #2 on the British pop chart,
the highest-ever position for a classical record. He has been certified 100-
times platinum in Australia, and has his own television series in the
Netherlands
. Andre Rieu performed for the British Queen in 2009 and for the
Dutch Queen in 2010-an honor for any artist.

Tickets go on sale beginning at 10:00 AM on Saturday, April 30 through
all Ticketmaster outlets, charge-by-phone at +1-800-745-3000, or via
