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.
