André Rieu, The Man Who's Thrown The Pop Charts In a Whirl!

Now It's Strictly Come Waltzing!
Meet The Man Who's Thrown The Pop Charts Into a Viennese Whirl
March 5, 2010 Update:

And, while his wavy, shoulder-length hair would suggest the talented Dutchman might be a bit of a showman on the sly, he blends in unobtrusively with his surroundings.

It is only later, when he plays a Swiss ice-Hockey arena with his Johann Strauss Orchestra, laughing and joking through a two-hour show, that it becomes apparent that Rieu, 60, is a classical musician with a difference.

Thanks a lot for the article.
Surprised to read that 'Forever Vienna' was a hit in Australia, I did not think it had been released there.
