André Rieu Arrives in Sydney!

André in Sydney Australia!

HE'S bigger than U2 and a most unlikely musical sex symbol. If you have not heard of the 58-year-old Dutch violinist and conductor Andre Rieu, you soon will.
Yesterday thousands of fans lined for several blocks down Park Street in Sydney to meet the man and get their DVDs signed.
Rieu has sold more recordings in a one-year period in Australia than any other artist for music giant Universal, and his DVDs have gone platinum 50 times over.
Credited with bringing new audiences to classical music, the statuesque, floppy-haired Dutchman has also been dubbed the "Mel Gibson of the violin".
"The violin is the instrument that for me is the most near to my body. When I have it here, it really vibrates when I play and it looks like a lady," he said yesterday.
Rieu flew into Australia on Wednesday for a promotional tour of his latest album, Waltzing Matilda, featuring I Still Call Australia Home and Home Among The Gum Trees.
Music teacher Elizabeth Evans, 47, of West Pennant Hills, brought her daughters Cordelia Lily, 8, and Priscilla Rose, 11, to meet Rieu.

Thanks Al for sending this!
