To promote the “Happy Together” tour, André appeared in two Portuguese TV Programs. We cannot
translate the Portuguese language, but we can understand the English speaking parts. We thank Maria
Pereira who manages the lively Portuguese Facebook site Rieu & Companhia - Portugal. She sent us the
links. André will perform in the Altice Arena in Lisbon on 2,3,4 December 2021. Plus a recently added
concert on December 1st.
October 18, 2021. Program: A Nossa Tarde (Our Afternoon), October 18, presented by Tânja Ribas de
Oliviera, with guest star André Rieu and his interpreter of the Portuguese language: Vanessa Oliviera.
Duration: 10 minutes. And remember: André is going to dance the Blue Danube with Tânja in Lisbon!
October 20, 2021. Program: Cá Por Casa com Herman José (Here at home with Herman José). October
20, 2021. Among the guests: André and his interpreter of the Portuguese language: Vanessa Oliveira.
Duration of the video: 10 minutes.
Presenter Herman José seems to have many talents. He tells André that he saw the DVD “Home at
Christmas” and sang along the songs (in German language). He shows some of his singing skills in the
program. André invites him to come to Vienna to sing on stage. Herman asks André what he did during
the corona lock-down. André: Baking cakes and cooking meals, for instance Ossobuco (Italian stew of
vegetables with veal shank) and endive stew with bacon.
Sometimes they are speaking German, or French with the lady next to him.
Question: which country does he love most? André: Portugal (of course!) and the South American
countries, because of the loose mentality.
Note: Ruud and I have been in Lisbon in 2019 and we can confirm that the audience there is over the top!
We have attended many concerts all across the world, but Lisbon had the most enthusiastic audience
