André Rieu at Eastland Mall, Australia


Jann and Pierre on Stage at Eastland Mall in Melbourne

Melbourne: What a treat for Jann from the Aussie Fansite! She went to Eastland Mall yesterday and had the opportunity to get some great pictures and see everything close up! Below is a little report she wrote of her unique experience and a few of her favorite photos that she took.

►Eastland filled quickly this morning as everyone turned up for the much anticipated appearance of André and Mirusia. It was fascinating to watch the comings and goings in the "media mosh pit" ... being on that side of the fence certainly gives you a different perspective !!!

Although running half an hour late, he more than made up for it once he arrived. He made a striking figure in his suit and Mirusia was stunning in a short black fitted dress with hot pink strings to form short sleeves.

André paid tribute to Victoria's bushfire victims and with feeling made this comment - "When we heard about these terrible fires in Australia, the only thing I wanted to do was jump on a plane and come and help you, but I am not much of a fireman." André went on to add "only when we're together, we can help each other, and we can go into the future." Mirusia gave us "Aussie Aussie ...Oy Oy and the crowd loved it. André performed Oh What A Beautiful Morning and then with Mirusia, they performed You'll Never Walk Alone - it was a beautiful performance. Then it was down to some elbow-grease for the two as they sat down and greeted everyone there as they autographed one CD/DVD after another, as I stood behind them, I could only marvel how much of themselves they gave to each person.

The highlight came at the very end when André spontaneously from behind the table, grabbed the closest security guard and started waltzing !!!! ... this was an absolute treat. ~ Jann

What a great experience for you, Jann. And for us vicariously. And thanks so much for the great foto's. You make a great reporter.
Can't help but be a little envious, but you deserve it with all you do on your fantastic site and everything you do for us fans.

Happy Mother's Day.
Guess it's today down under.

I would love to have seen André dance with that security guard! You never know what he's going to do!!

Happy Mother's Day!
