André: It is much too cold on the North Pole
RTL Aug. 8th: Violinist and conductor André Rieu always likes for his concerts to become better and go farther. This morning the Dutch media reported en masse that this time he would be going to the North Pole. Anyway you probably know the joke that André Rieu did go to the North Pole.
Well, he did not. The news that Rieu would go to the North Pole was sent out to the world by some prankster.
"This morning I heard about it from my son Pierre We had toyed with this idea it but it has not been discussed for many years," André told RTL Boulevard.
This plan has long been tabled since the Arctic is much too cold according to André.
Whoever told the world this story is unknown to the violinist and he is not happy about it. "It's annoying, to say the least. I am on holiday now and having to explain this to everyone was not in my plans."
Thank You to John for the quick translation on this!
