André Rieu, aka the King of the Waltz, will screen his 2018 Maastricht concerts via satellite in over 500 cinemas nationwide on 28th and 29th July.
Title Amore – My Tribute to Love, the violinist pays tribute to his love for music and his love for his families. The concert follows on from the release of the album Amore last year, which features Rieu’s own versions of classic love songs from the worlds of popular and classical music.
Rieu is inviting UK cinemagoers to dedicate one of his waltzes to a special loved one. He will personally select a dedication on both nights and will announce the dedication, and the winner, to cinema audiences across the UK. To submit your dedication visit www.andreincinemas.com/dedications.
The concerts take place in Rieu’s hometown of Maastricht in the Netherlands. He will be joined by his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, as well as sopranos, tenors, and some very special guests.
André said: “To be able to bring the concert from my beautiful hometown of Maastricht direct to cinemas for my fans in the UK every year is such a thrill! My orchestra and I get so excited about our romantic open-air shows, it’s just magical to bring it to the big screen.
Music is, as they say, the food of love! That is what this show is all about, all types of love. So, we thought what a wonderful way it would be to celebrate this with my British fans than to invite them to submit their dedications for their loved ones, which I shall read out before a very special song in Maastricht that they will see wherever they may be watching across the UK!
I invite you to join me and my orchestra once again for a fantastic adventure; filled with wonderful music and of course: AMORE.”
The concert presentation will be hosted by Good Morning Britain’s Charlotte Hawkins who will interview fans and catch up with Rieu for an exclusive chat as soon as he steps off stage.
