Important message for the fans about FAKE RIEUS.Currently a few fake Rieus are misleading the fans on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest.Be sure that the real André Rieu never writes messages to fans on Facebook, via PM or otherwise. He’ll never ask for money or whatever. He has no adopted son, he does not announce concerts or Meet and Greets on Facebook. The right information can be found on his official website: www.andrerieu.com.So please report and block these fake persons. Instruction how to do that, click HERE.

Lancashire Post, January 11, 2019.By Clare Kelly.Is André Rieu's orchestra key to a more peaceful world??Very regrettably, 2019 seems to be starting off with so many disputes, wars, disagreements, famine, divisions and anger which politicians and others appear incapable of solving. One has only to look at Republicans versus Democrats in the US, the EU verses the UK, Russia versus Ukraine, Saudi Arabia versus Yemen, unions versus the private rail companies and many, many more. But there is a way tensions might be calmed. The amazing Dutch violinist and conductor of the Johann Strauss Orchestra, Andre Rieu, has, for 31 years, led his wonderful band all over the world. His orchestra contains folk from 13 different countries. There is never a row, no in-fighting, all successfully based on fun. Wherever his orchestra plays, everyone is full of happiness, goodwill, caring and love of their fellow man. After two or more hours of playing, there is hardly a dry eye in the audience. His music appeals to everyone.So, if his orchestra was booked for a two-hour session before all future ‘disputes and meetings’, the overall air would be calmer, far more pleasant, and a ‘nice’ outcome much more likely.Everything else seems to be failing right now - so why not give this a try?
February 18, 2019.In Memoriam: Joke Breedijk (75)Yesterday we lost our dear friend Joke, who played the role of André Rieu in the senior mime JSO orchestra in our home town. We knew that she was diagnosed with a serious illness but she persisted to lead the orchestra till the end. This photo was taken on February 5th 2019, to “celebrate” that the orchestra had changed into a foundation and new people could take over her tasks. She knew she had to give up soon. On February 18, 2019, she passed away.Click on the picture.
