2010's Biggest Selling Classical Artist Tours the UK for the First Time, Ever!

MAASTRICHT, The Netherlands, January 19, 2011 - ***Extra Tour Date Added to Birmingham Arena***

Having outsold artists such as Cheryl Cole, Susan Boyle, JLS,
Florence & The Machine, 2010's biggest selling classical artist, Andre Rieu,
the Dutch violinist and conductor, brings his spectacular production to the
UK for the first time. Due to popular demand Rieu has added a second show at
the LG Arena in Birmingham on Saturday, April 23 2011.

At last, adoring fans across the UK can see for themselves just why Andre
is the most successful solo male touring artist in the world. A musical
phenomenon, Andre Rieu and his touring production is unlike anything else in
the entertainment world. Music fans can expect the experience of a lifetime
when they attend the only classical concerts where the audience jump to their
feet and dance in the aisles.

The stunning costumes and elaborate stage-sets add to the romantic and
festive atmosphere Rieu creates. Conducting the Johann Strauss Orchestra with
his violin bow - just like the composer himself - Rieu's onstage charisma and
rock-star demeanour make his live shows simply irresistible.

Fully recovered from his illness, Andre said: "I am so
thrilled and excited to finally be able to play in the UK & Ireland in April.
I look forward to the most amazing concerts! Thank you all for your support
and love, it has been the best medicine for my recovery! See you in April!"

Kicking off at Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena, Rieu - known as the 'King
of the Waltz' - and his Johann Strauss Orchestra, Choir and soloists, will
visit arenas up and down the country.
