Fans Evacuate André Rieu Brisbane Concert

Fans Take Refuge at André Rieu Brisbane Concert
A Spectacular Storm Failed To Upstage André Rieu!

Sydney Morning Herald Fans at the Brisbane André Rieu concert were forced to take refuge inside Suncorp Stadium after a severe thunderstorm lashed south east Queensland and delayed proceedings by one hour. Organisers say they were very close to cancelling the concert as an 8pm starting time meant the concert could go as late as 11.15pm. One fan at the event said it was extremely crowded inside the corridors during the storm with people packed shoulder to shoulder.

Damaging winds, large hailstones and severe lightning across south east Queensland forced Rieu fans standing on the grass and sitting in uncovered sections to take refuge inside the stadium, which was one of the worst areas hit by the storm. The concert, which was scheduled to start at 7pm, did not start until 8pm.

I just got back from the Brisbane concert. The storm went for ages but eventually we were allowed back to our seats and once Andre got the concert underway everyone forgot the earlier kerfuffle. The concert was a pure delight and put everyone on cloud nine. What a brilliant night!
