Small Fire On Stage At André Rieu Concert in Maastricht

Tonight Was The Last Concert of The First Week's Series

TUESDAY JULY 13, 2010 Beautiful day today, and a perfect evening for a concert. Pipe band once again. André was doing an interview and promo spots on the steps of the theater for television, for at least a half an hour.
Tonight they experienced only the second technical glitch that I've ever witnessed, the first being Suzan Eren's microphone failure in Melbourne.Tonight there was a speaker or microphone failure for the Platin Tenors' second song, Oh Solo Mio. André gave them another opportunity by starting the second set with that song.

A bigger problem occured during Marina. André and some of the orchestra members noticed a fire above the stage. André strutted to the wings to alert his men, but continued playing.
They finished Marina while men climbed without safety harness and put out the fire with damp rags. Fire Department was dispatched to the Vrijthof to make certain the fire which was caused by pyrotechnics was safely extinguished ... And last, DJ Otzi saw me taking his picture. I gave him a thumbs up and he grinned and gave me a thumbs up too! ... Al Girard

Wow, looks like that guy may have had to be treated for burns. They did a good job getting the fire out so fast - it could have been so much worse!
