André Rieu Recovered!

André Rieu Gave Two Fabulous Concerts in Brussels!

AMSTERDAM - November 20, 2010 André Rieu gave two fabulous concerts in Brussels. The violin virtuoso has recovered from an infection on his equilibrium, which kept him from the stage since the beginning of August.
"It was exciting and it's also so wonderful to be back. The orchestra is excited. Logical, they were in fear for their jobs." The 61 year old André Rieu had become disabled because he was so dizzy that he could not be on stage. And that, while the Limburg virtuoso had never been sick! "It was an experience I would rather not relive" he says wryly, then added candidly, "I just now was a little light headed when I looked up, but I could function very well. The doctors say that the dizziness will pass. I feel like I am reborn again."
Today, André and his orchestra drive to Frankfurt to fly from there to Mexico. "The first three days we are there is to get used to the altitude difference and then we will let go. We need to get acclimated. Last time the whole orchestra thought that we all had it on our hearts. We did not think about the effects of the thin air."
André will perform in four concerts in Mexico City: "We spent a paltry sum of 1600 euro's on marketing. And by then we were already sold out. We are in the Auditoria, which can accommodate 10,000 people."
After Mexico follows America, Germany, Australia and England. "And for the Christmas Concert we will be in Hasselt. Who would like to join me in some fun in the Netherlands ... at Pentecost we are in the Amsterdam ArenA. I'll make up all the missed conviviality!"
Thanks to John for his ©Translation of this article and Ineke for sending it to us.
