André Rieu Arrives in New Zealand!

...
The King of Waltz Is Here!

Celebrated musician André Rieu and his orchestra were greeted with a traditional powhiri as they arrived at Auckland Airport this evening. The chart-topping Dutch violinist is kicking off his 2009 Arena Tour with two spectacular shows at the Vector Arena this weekend.
Rieu, best known for creating an international revival in waltz music, has sold more than 25 million albums worldwide. His 2008 Australian Tour broke classical concert records and he has sold more than 200,000 DVDs in New Zealand. Rieu's six CD box set "The 100 Most Beautiful Melodies" recently peaked at number five in the New Zealand Album Chart.

SHOW DATES: Andre Rieu and the Johann Strauss Orchestra Saturday, October 24 - Vector Arena (sold out) Sunday, October 25 - Vector Arena - www.ticketmaster.com

I wonder...the minute André saw the group...did he have tears in his eyes?? He must be sooo touched by this special welcome. Oh! How lovely!

That is the most wonderful and beautiful country. We hoped to go back ourselves, but too many conflicts. Driving on the "wrong" side of the road in a shift car is a little tricky, but it's amazing how quickly you get onto it. Maybe next year. At least we had an extensive trip once.

What a unique welcome! I'm sure Andre & the JSO enjoyed having others entertain them this time around. We enjoyed it too, via pictures!

Oh how I'd loved to have seen that, fantastic - a Maori welcome for Andre and the JSO, I wonder if there will be a hangi cooked for them? afterall everyone has to eat...
You're right Laurie, driving those mountain roads are such a challenge but it's all worth it eh.

Funny to see these pictures at the Auckland Museum. A couple of hours earlier I had been there, too.
Yesterday I did a tour by bus to Rotorua. It is really a dream to travel through this country.
Today I will go to the 2nd concert here in Auckland.
Greetings from Auckland, Beate
(would love to load my pictures, but have some trouble with the public WIFI.)
