London Loves André Rieu at The O2!

ANDRÉ RIEU at the 02 London 20th April 2011 with Peter Weeks ... I don't think the 02 has ever seen the likes of this. From the start of "76 Trombones", through to the likes of "The Platin Tenors" and Mirusia and Kimmy the audience were spellbound. All the usual songs which was great to hear again and the newcomers would have thought, "Wow what a great show", as we old timers did.
During "The Snow Waltz", SNOW started to fall on the audience and most of it on me!! I was covered and I even got on the Big Screens. The bedroom this morning was covered in it. Strange the places it gets to!!!!!!
During the second half it came to "The Blue Danube" time and as soon as it started some of the audience were up dancing in the aisles. By the time it finished, it was a job to find room to dance. This went on through to "Radetzky March", "Strauss and Co" etc etc with more and more people up dancing and having a ball, balloons and all. After numerous encores he finally finished up with "We'll Meet Again", (the old Vera Lynn song) and the whole arena sang along to it.
I have been to 6 of his concerts and I would rate this as one of his best and it was a great privilege being there ... Peter Weeks
Thanks Peter for writing about your concert. In your few words, we see London loved André!

I think we fans could feel the true happiness even though we were not there. For longtime fans we are proud of André being a household name in UK. For newer fans, we're happy that you have joined us who enjoy a better life with his music!

I was there too - it was 20th, not 29th. Such a marvellous show. Andre Rieu so enigmatic and intent on making sure everyone has a wonderful time. The orchestra and soloists were fabulous. The Swan was out of this world. I could go on and on, but if you get the chance to go to one of his concerts, don't miss it. Linda C.

Linda ~ thanks for the date correction, it was a 'typo' on my part, not Peter's.
