André Rieu Promotion Tour Interview In South Africa

..
André Rieu On Promotional Tour in South Africa

South Africa March 5, 2010 ~ André Rieu has announced another date to his tour of South Africa. And like with most things in his life another record. He is the first artist to perform at the Sun City Superbowl five nights in a row. The extra date is on 27 April and tickets went on sale this morning.

Speaking at a press conference at Sun International Headquarters, the world famous violinist and best selling male artist in 2009 said that trying to reach perfection in music was better than sex. "We will rehearse for at least three weeks before we push that red button to record."He also said that the secret to his massive success was that he looks for contact with his audience. "When I look for contact then I am not so alone. I have 10,000 people on stage with me.

"Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra are exceptionally popular world wide with over 30 million CDs sold. He lives in a fourteenth century castle and loves fast cars.But, in an interview he told Tonight that he is happiest trying to achieve perfection and fulfilling his dreams. "It's important that people have dreams because it makes us happy.

Asked if he ever gets tired of his hectic world touring schedule he replied, "I have a lot of energy. I sleep a lot and have a simple regime. I'm either awake or asleep. I can’t stand people who are not awake. "Rieu also said that he never goes on holiday because he never sees the need: "I don't work so why should I go on holiday. I am always packing my bag to go somewhere."

The André Rieu Live in South Africa tour begins on Saturday, 24 April at the Sun City Super Bowl and ends on Sunday 2 May at the GrandWest Area in Cape Town. Tickets are available at Computicket. However all shows are SOLD OUT apart from the last show in Cape Town and the last show at Sun City.
