Popular classical artist, André Rieu, is about to embark on his biggest SA tour to date. He will be performing in four shows across the country including an added show at the Coca-Cola Dome.
The Coca-Cola Dome with its capacity of 13,000, will be the biggest venue Rieu has ever played in South Africa.
André Rieu’s return will be marked with the ultimate collaboration to date when he, his orchestra and guest performers will be joined on stage by the multi-award winning Soweto Gospel Choir.
“The Soweto Gospel Choir is thrilled to be performing with André Rieu during his upcoming tour. This year, the choir was honoured to be invited to The Netherlands to join André on stage, with the Harlem Gospel Choir and for his South African concerts, we look forward to adding to the André Rieu magic, a touch of Soweto Gospel Choir’s unique African spirit”, says Beverly Bryer, Executive Producer/Director of the Soweto Gospel Choir.
Rieu has sold more than 30 million albums globally, and has broken all classical concert records, packing stadiums and arenas with more than 700,000 adoring fans each year. Over 100,000 South African fans have attended his sold-out tours over the past two years.
"My main goal, every concert, is for people to have an unforgettable night. I like to talk to my audience, interact with them and look them in the eyes. People can expect a colourful concert, with beautiful melodies, waltzes, surprises, balloons, the tenors and our lovely sopranos from South Africa, Australia and Brazil! I am really looking forward to visiting my fans in South Africa again." said André Rieu.
The tour dates are 17 and 18th August at the Coca Cola Dome, 21 August at the Durban ICC and 23 August at the Cape Town Grand West arena.
