January Newsletter From André

Happy New Year!
January 3rd Newsletter from Andre for those who didn't get it in email

What a start to the new year: a brand new world tour! With “Romantic Vienna Nights” André Rieu, his Johann Strauss Orchestra and his entire crew tour the globe. Never before has an artist taken such a gigantic stage set-up with him on his tour.

The kick-off of the World Stadium Tour was given in Toronto and it was a sweeping success! It met with nothing but praise! There is the life-size replica of Sissi’s castle in Vienna, Schönbrunn Palace, as a stage set-up, a golden coach drawn by 6 white horses, 80 Vienna Debutantes, the world-famous Vienna State Opera Ballet, and a lot more!

Waltzes by Strauss and Léhar and melodies by Stolz, performed by The Platinum Tenors, Carmen Monarcha, Carla Maffioletti, Mirusia Louwerse, Suzan Erens and the Johann Strauss Orchestra and Choir. And all that on a never-seen-before, super-size stage. Definitely something not to be missed!
So, for exact dates hurry to www.andrerieu.com and straight away order tickets for any of the concerts in Düsseldorf (LTU Arena), Leipzig (Festwiese), Amsterdam (Amsterdam ArenA), Brussels (King Baudouin Stadium), Melbourne (Telstra Dome), Sydney (Telstra Stadium), Brisbane (Suncorp Stadium) or Adelaide (AAMI Stadium). We all hope to meet you at one of these concerts. Australia, already now, is wildly enthusiastic about “Romantic Vienna nights” coming. André Rieu is bringing Vienna to his admirers’ doorstep. After awarding his DVD’s platinum status, Australia is now falling for this world stadium tour.

And here’s a piece of hot news: there are plans to set up Schönbrunn Castle in New York CENTRAL PARK as well!!! Of course, you will be among the first to be informed via our newsletter and via www.andrerieu.com if these plans become more substantial.

Again, it is with great pleasure that we look back on a marvellous and exciting musical year. Through our guestbook we have enjoyed all your messages and we hope you will continue to send them with the same degree of enthusiasm. Just one more task for us to perform:

We wish you a healthy, loving and musical year.

Thank you for posting Andre's newsletter,Sue. I note that Perth, Australia is not mentioned. While I sincerely hope the fans in Perth are able to enjoy a concert over there, I must admit I freaked a little when I read the article re. the proposed date of Dec.1. With Sydney's concert on Nov.29 and Brisbane's on Dec.3 that would be an almost impossible task for setting up and Andre and cast to perform well with the distances involved there.
Hopefully all will be resolved soon.
Both Sydney and Melbourne were able to have weekend concerts and they were the first announced. This makes sense for Andre if a second concert is warranted. Brisbane and Adelaide are mid-week and were announced later. Obviously I'm only speculating but quite likely Andre was holding out for weekends there.
No doubt all will be revealed soon.
Love and cheers
Bernadette

It almost looks like a go for Central Park doesn't it? Very exciting! Sometimes they do have to change plans as they did with Liberty State Park overlooking the Statue of Liberty here in New Jersey. That became the filming in Radio City in July of '06.
Bernadette. the original plans are for Andre to bring all three Schonbrunn sets to Australia. Presumably, they will all be ready. The orchestra isn't involved with set-up, they just have to get there to play, so it should work out to add more concerts. Here and in Europe, they play night after night in a different venue every night, so there should not be a problem. In fact, orchestra members will say that they don't know where they are (or care) until Andre announces the city!!!

I really appreciate being able to obtain so muchinformation on the JSO upcoming tour to Australia. I wasn't able to get tickets for the Sydney cxoncert on 29th Nov and am desperately hoping that a second concert, perhaps on Friday 28th, will be announced soon. Has anyone heard anything?

Every good wish for a wonderful 2008 to everyone!

Thanks Laurie
You've no doubt seen by now that I posted a comment also in the Guest book and Sue replied. Being the holiday period I obviously have some time on my hands!!! I need it for the pace of my typing.
However you've both been most helpful, I've lots to learn but I'm loving it!!!!
By the way how does this newsletter work? I've filled in the appropriate bits & pieces but they don't seem to arrive.

One thing about the World Stadium Tour that I have not seen mentioned is the fact that a lot of local people (and horses) are involved, so there has to be rehearsal time at each of the stadiums. In Toronto they had rehearsals fo two days. So with that in mind, even though the orchestra has nothing to do with setting up the decore, they will require at least a couple of days between concerts in different cities.
