Andre Rieu Makes History With Live in Australia DVD

Andre Rieu Makes History With Live in Australia DVD

December 16, 2008 Melbourne Sun Cameron Adams

ANDRE Rieu continues to break records, with the Dutch violinist's Live in Australia DVD becoming the fastest selling in Australian history.
Live in Australia was filmed at Telstra Dome on November 15.

The DVD sold 50,452 copies in just four days last week, with music stores struggling to cope with demand. Review: Andre Rieu's DVD takes kitsch to a whole new level In comparison, this week's No. 1 CD, Pink's Funhouse, sold 36,529 copies. And the No. 2 music DVD, Pink's Live from Wembley Arena, sold just 2537 copies.
This week Rieu has six titles in the list of Top 10 music DVDs. Live in Australia has instantly achieved 10 times platinum status, in recognition of more than 120,000 copies sent to stores. The pre-Christmas rush now brings Rieu's Australian combined DVD and CD sales to more than two million in less than 18 months.

"It's the power of heart-warming music by great composers," Rieu said of his latest DVD chart-topper. "It's a love affair: I love my Australian fans and they love me. Australia is my second home and it will always be."

The DVD is the same concert Rieu sold as a pay-for-view special on cable TV last month. Rieu had staff editing the live footage during his Australian tour to get the DVD out for Christmas
