"Contract" With The Horeca (Hotel, Restaurant, Cafe)
Must Save the Rieu Concerts

Maastricht 7 September 2007
The Horeca proprietors of the Vrijthof will come together in the coming week to create new regulations in limiting the noise levels during the Rieu concerts. If they agree on a workable proposal, the chance is great that the Andre Rieu concerts will continue on the Vrijthof next year.

That was the result of a meeting between Mayor Gerd Leers of Maastricht, and the proprietors of the Vrijthof Horeca, which was organized by the Mayor on 6 September. Gerd Leers called the proprietors together after it was learned that, during the concerts this past July, several terraces produced so much noise that the musicians could not perform properly and the concert attendees could not enjoy the concert as they should.
Because of that situation, Rieu wanted to discontinue that summertime concert tradition. The ticket sales have also been suspended.

The proprietors were unanimous in their huge interest in having the concerts continue, and promised to create code of conducts, which will contain concrete rules as to what is allowed and what is not.

These agreements will contain amongst others, that serving will only be allowed before, after and during intermission of the concert. In addition, groups of people will not be allowed, and those who are not behaving accordingly, will very strongly be advised regarding their behavior. The proprietors will also include sanctions in the agreement, should the rules be broken.

If the proprietors are successful in creating a firm and decisive agreement, they, the city and Andre Rieu will sign that agreement on Sunday 16 September.
