André Rieu Cancels British Tour After Tragedy Strikes His Orchestra
1Limburg: André Rieu has decided to cancel the remaining five concerts he would be performing in the future in Great Britain. Everyone is too upset to continue playing after an orchestra member suffered a heart attack.
According to manager Pierre Rieu, the man's condition is still uncertain. "We are all together waiting for him to wake up." The orchestra member suffered cardiac arrest on Saturday morning at 5:00 am. His wife - also a member of Rieu's orchestra - immediately called for help from their travel-along doctor and security. The musician was then transferred to the hospital. Based on that situation, Rieu decided to cancel the show for Saturday evening.
Rieu would be performing on Monday and Tuesday in London, Wednesday in Birmingham, Manchester on Thursday and Friday in Glasgow. But now the next scheduled performance is the New Year's concert in Amsterdam's Ziggo Dome on 7 January.
