World Stadium Tour Amsterdam

October 25, 2008 ~ Translated by Sonja

Andre Rieu Magically Changes World Stadiums Into The
Viennese Schonbrunn Square

Amsterdam ~ Andre Rieu is a world famous star. And like it is becoming for a world star, the king of Waltz is organizing a world tour for next year which goes to the largest stadiums around the world, and he will not leave anything to chance. Viennese horses, ice dancers, 250 artists, a sparkling light show and even a life size reproduction of the Viennese palace Schonbrunn the star will drag the around the world in the coming months. The Andre Rieu World tour Stadium tour ~ A romantic night in Vienna will have its premiere on December 14, 2007 in Toronto. Next the tour will be in Dusseldorf, Amsterdam, Leipzig, Paris and Brussels.

Arena
On June 28, 2008 Rieu and his entourage will descent in the Amsterdam Arena. The show which takes place on and before the largest mobile decor in the world, is hard to describe. Of course the public will get to see Andre Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra and the choir, many well known soloists and the
Vienna state ballet.

Ice Dancers
But also Ice dancers on two skating rinks in front of Schonbrunn, 36 White Traditional Viennese horses, a golden carriage with Sissi and Frans-Jozef, dozens of chandeliers and exuberant costumes. "It is going to be tremendously enjoyable, a real fairytale evening", according to Rieu on Thursday during the presentation of his tour. He is especially proud of the enormous replica of the Viennese palace.



Tears

"I had tears in my eyes when I first saw it" The enormous decor, which will be transported in 125 sea containers, is 125 (375 feet) 30 (90 feet)
meters deep and 34 (102 feet) high. The building has a golden ballroom, and two skating rinks of a total of 600 square meters (6.600 square feet). It takes 100 builders five 24 hour days of hard work to build the Schonbrunn decor. Especially for his show in Amsterdam, Rieu together with the Arena is developing a special system to bring the acoustics to a higher level. (the arena is known to have bad acoustics)

Rest
"I will not rest until the acoustics here are like they have never been before", according to the man from Limburg. "And that is also good for the following artists who will play here. A romantic night in Vienna is for the time being one evening in the Arena, but that could possibly become two, thee, four or five,
says Rieu. Actually this decor is not suitable for only one night"!
