Rieu Announces Fundraiser For Flood Victims in England

André Rieu Announces Fundraiser For Flood Victims in England 

MAASTRICHT - By Nick Rompelberg and Xavier Comuth, Maastricht Dichtbij - World famous Maastricht violinist André Rieu  is seriously considering a benefit concert to bring aid to the thousands of Englishmen who in recent days have been affected by flooding due to the continuing bad weather. The images of extreme flooding make the Maastricht world star reflect back to the massive flooding in Limburg in 1995, Rieu writes on his official Face book page . At that time he also gave a benefit concert . It was during the time when the Maastricht citizen broke through with his big hit "The Second Waltz."

Rieu, who is now on tour in Germany, is in England just as immensely popular as he is in many other places in the world. In December, he performed three concerts in the famous Wembley Stadium in London. "February 23rd would be a feasible date to move Rieu's decor into Wembley again" André's son Pierre told the Telegraph TV and Dichtbij.nl. However, they are still looking for a relief agency that will support the concert, and a broadcast company which will want to broadcast the special.

André's message on Facebook earned him 19,420 likes so far.

Meanwhile, many British people are holding their breath in anticipation of the new storm which is due to come to their country. Meteorologists have again announced a severe storm and heavy rain for tonight and tomorrow morning. In the 17 areas in the west and southwest, where again a flood warning has been given, problems are likely to be even bigger, reports the BBC. 

After Wednesday's storm more than 26,000 households were still without power Thursday evening. Employees of the electric companies have been working throughout the night to alleviate as many people's problems as possible. ►Click Here For Video in Dutch

Wow, no snow in Europe, assuming the video of Pierre is a recent one- you should see it here in the Boston area! Blizzard watch with 6-10 inches more coming tomorrow too! For the first time in my life I really, really want to move to Florida! ;-) Thanks for all this quick info- Jennifer D.

Things are getting better here in the Uk the hurricane winds have gone at last after six weeks. On my country lane we have 20 trees down . We had a visit from our Prime Minister today down by the river. People have managed to get to the shops and restock with food and the power is back up again.People have smiled today and so life is going on at last, wonderful.

Glad to hear it Carol! We are getting another snowstorm tomorrow (!) but it is manageable where I live. A lot of people on Cape Cod still don't have power. But the flooding in England is a lot worse, so I am glad to hear it's getting a bit better.
Best,
Jennifer D.

This is also the place to thank all those Dutch companies that helped the English fight the results of the flooding! We have the know how, we are happy to share with you :)
Round of applause is in order, I think.

Avec son grand cœur, André ne pouvait faire moins que s'investir dans cette noble cause, apporter une aide matérielle à des personnes durement touchées par les intempéries. Bravo à lui qui est toujours prêt à secourir les plus démunis! Francine.
