André Rieu Performs at The Royal Gala in England


BLACKPOOL, England, December 9, 2009 Along with Lady Gaga, Michael Bublé and Mika, André Rieu performed in The Royal Variety Performance. With his appearance before as many as 12 million viewers, Rieu has firmly established himself in England.

André exhibited his skills at The Royal Variety Performance, an annual gala evening that dates back to when the first performance was conducted in 1912, and was attended by the British Royal Family.

"A performance for the Queen of England and having the opportunity to share the stage with such great stars in front of more than 12 million viewers, which is an enormous honour. This is a new milestone in my career!" said Rieu, who had the opportunity to talk to Queen Elizabeth; "I shook her hand and spoke to her shortly. She was very friendly and told me that she enjoyed the beautiful melodies a lot".

Michael Bublé, Whoopi Goldberg and Queen Elizabeth spoke well about Rieu's performance. "I enjoyed his performance a lot and have told André that I will come to see his show in New York in June." Whoopi Goldberg said.

On December 16, The Royal Variety Performance will be broadcast on British TV and will draw an estimated 12 million viewers.

What a nice experience for André & JSO. Wouldn't it be interesting to see them perform I Will Follow Him again in New York, but with Whoopi as conductor...like the movie??
p.s. I thought Andrea is Ivan's mom.

I was hoping Whooopi Goldberg would enjoy Andre's music and if she comes to his concert maybe she'll invite him on her show "The View". That would be nice and upbeat which Andre is. Great article and thanks Sue for posting, I was anxious to know how this event went for Andre. It went well.

Oh, that would be great if Andre was invited to Whoopie's show. He needs to be on regular TV here! Andrea is Ivan's mother. Eefje is Pierre's wife and the mother of the twins.
