André Rieu Playing At French Soccer Game

André Plays at French Soccer Game to 35,000

Below is a link with a video of André playing at a French Soccer game on Monday, March 2nd. There's a short interview with him at the end of the video speaking in French. The Video is just below the main video. You will also find these pictures and more on the same Site.

RC Lens is a famous football/soccer club in Lens, Northern France. On Monday 2 March Lens played the team Troyes. (the result was a draw 1-1). During the ‘half time’ interval, Andrè played his version of "Les Corons", which is a well known song in that part of France., and has been adopted by the football team as their "Anthem".

In the interview he says that he remembered how, 15 years ago he played at the Ajax/Bayern Munich football match in Amsterdam during half time (The Second Waltz) and it was a big success, everybody in the stadium sang along, it was very impressive!. And he hopes that he will make the same impression here, there is always a risk performing at a football match because the spectators come for the soccer and not for me. He has recorded "Les Corons" by Pierre Bachelet on his last album, instantly taking a liking to the music.

That's a much better clip than any I found. Do you suppose it has any connection with his knighthood in France? I can't wait to hear the translation. ~Chris T.
