Pop Star André Rieu

Andre Rieu, The Biggest Pop Star In Australia!

Undercover HD News
by Paul Cashmere - March 10 2008


Historically, when we talk about total chart domination, we talk about The Beatles, the Bee Gees and Abba. Those were the days when one act could have multiple hits in the chart at the same time. Add Andre Rieu to that category. Not since The Beatles, Abba and the Bee Gees has anyone owned a chart like Rieu does today.


On this week's Australian DVD chart, Andre Rieu has the No. 1 DVD 'Live In Vienna'. He is also at No's 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14,16, 22, 23, 24, 29 and 38. Andre Rieu this week has 15 DVD's in the Top 40.

He sold a total of 9,569 units in the Top 40. That is 2,626 units more than Jack Johnson's no. 1 album or 50.46% of the Top 40 DVDs. It might all make sense if Andre Rieu really was a pop star. He is not. He is a 58 year old violinist and conductor.


Rieu will tour Australia in November and December of this year.

That would be interesting, Sue. But the Australians sure know quality!
Great to see my favorite, "Live in
Vienna" as No. 1. Hopefully we will see it on PBS here in the near future.

And so many thanks for finding these interesting articles and posting them!!

I love "Live in Vienna" too Laurie! I wish he would play that concert with his Schoenbrunn World Tour ... I really like watching Wonderland, but I find it's Live in Vienna I watch the most now, the music is just beautiful in it.

I am anxious to see how Wonderland is going to do here in the US when it's released on April 1st. I bet it goes to #1 very quick! :)

Thanks for posting this, Sue. It's great to see Andre attracting this amount of publicity in Australia.
Yes, I agree with you and Laurie. The music in 'Live In Vienna' is just beautiful. It would be my favourite D.V.D.
I do hope when he tours Australia that we see that type of 'concert'!! not one filled with Australian guests and didjeridoos!! I just don't see them fitting in with the Viennese theme at all.
Cheers
Bernadette
