André Rieu Loathed by Critics Adored by Fans

André Rieu Waltzing Off With the Public's Affection

Herald Scotland by Catriona Stewart
April 19, 2011
LOATHED by critics and adored by fans, violinist and conductor Andre Rieu is an eccentric mix of opposites: an artist who presides over a global business empire, a laid-back charmer with a fierce eye for detail, at once schmaltzy but heartfelt.

Critics label the 61-year-old an affront to classical music’s polite face, but the numbers don’t lie. His last tour with his Johann Strauss Orchestra sold more than any other male touring artist in the world, outstripping Bruce Springsteen. His album, Forever Vienna, secured the highest-ever ranking for a classical record, reaching No 2 in the British pop chart. He has sold more than 22million albums globally. With his long hair and roguish sparkle, he’s a rock star for the genteel ... André Rieu’s UK tour begins today in Newcastle.

Waiting for an Andre Rieu concert to come to your part of the country is like waiting for Santa Clause on Christmas morning, you are so excited waiting for that special day to see what Santa is going to bring and you are never disappointed. Andre gives us such beautiful music and i never tire of listening to him, my only regret is that i did not know Andre years ago and i feel like i have missed out on so much, but thank heaven i did find him and i am so thankful for that, nothing drags heavier than a big old sack of regrets, Love you Blue Eyes, Barb.
