André Rieu Will Make Cape Town's Parade Waltz 2011

Violin King André Rieu Will Make The Parade Waltz Next Year

Cape Town, May 3, 2010 from "Die Burger" by Marelize Potgieter.

The eyes of one hundred million people all over the world will be focused on Cape Town, when André Rieu records his next concert DVD in Cape Town.

Approximately 13.000 people are expected to attend the concert next year on 26 March 2011 on the Parade, where the Dutch violinist and waltz king will perform. The background of his concert will be the Table Mountain, the old Town Hall and the Castle.

The open air performance will take the breath of his fans away. His own special stage will be flown in. He will be assisted by top technicians and film crew, who will ensure a smooth running concert as well as film the entire performance.

According to Mr. Sam Hendriks, manager of Hunta Live, whose company organizes all the performances, this will be one of the biggest events ever held on the Parade.

Rieu is well known for his open air concerts and has performed on most of the big squares in the world.

The audience can enjoy the performance with a snack and a glass of wine in the open air. His performances will be very special, with a real South African touch, said Hendriks.

Rieu will start his tour on March 18 2011 in Sun City, after which he will travel to Durban and Cape Town. It may also be possible that he'll perform in Port Elizabeth and Bloemfontein.

Tickets for the Cape Town concert may be ordered as of today through
www.computicket.com .

According to Mrs. Anneke van der Westhuizen (also from Hunta Live), Rieu indicated that he'd like to make the concert in Cape Town more accessible for the residents, and that cheaper tickets will also be available.

According to Mr. Cronjé, (director of communications of Cape Town city council), the council is very happy that Rieu selected the historic Parade for the recording of his next concert.
That way beautiful images of Cape Town will be spread all over the world and they will be seen in people’s homes. Those same images will be seen by enthusiastic soccer fans during the World Soccer Championship in South Africa in June 2010. The Parade will be the center of festivities in Cape Town.

Rieu has fans from all over the world and his partnership with Cape Town is something to look forward to.
