Ster-Kinekor: Great Moments at their Greatest
The record-breaking André Rieu’s 2017 Maastricht Concert Exclusive at Ster-Kinekor Cinemas: 21 & 22 October 2017
Violinist’s annual Maastricht Concert holds the record as number 1 event music concert of all time
Coincides with André’ Rieu’s 30th Year Performing with His Johann Strauss Orchestra
Celebrating his 30th year at the forefront of popular music, Dutch violinist André Rieu, performed with his Johann Strauss Orchestra in the Maastricht, Netherlands. The beautiful program this year features old and new friends; and of course, a special guest: David Hasselhoff!
Known for his energetic and spell-binding live performances, as well as amassing over 40 million album and DVD sales worldwide, and now the world’s leading pop classical artist, Rieu has been consistent in giving a world-class performance in his hometown annually.
The Dutch violinist is one of the world’s highest-grossing touring artists, and every year performs a very special concert in his hometown of Maastricht to tens of thousands who travel from all over the globe to experience one of the most emotionally engulfing live music experiences possible, set against the back-drop of the equally as elegant medieval town square.
The Maastricht concert features the maestro in his element, with his famous 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, sopranos, tenors and very special guests.
Last year, André Rieu’s Maastricht concert broke his own record for music event cinema – grossing more than £1.4million (R 25 million) at the UK box office over one weekend, more than Take That and One Direction.
The Maastricht concert in 2017 holds extra special significance, as it marks 30 years since André formed the Johann Strauss Orchestra, who have come to be as much family to him as some of the most talented musicians anyone could share the stage with.
On the cinema shows and his 30th Anniversary of performing with the Johann Strauss Orchestra, André said, “When I founded the Johann Strauss Orchestra in 1987, there were only twelve orchestra members – now there are more than 60 people on stage! Although a lot has changed, there is one thing which has never changed: the joy of playing together, whether in a small group or a big orchestra. We are so much looking forward to bringing this joy again this year to your cinema in July. The program will be very diverse, reflecting this special anniversary. I do hope you will all join us for an unforgettable, magical evening brought to you from my romantic hometown Maastricht.”
Having performed to millions over a career that milestone accolades do no real justice to, audiences in South Africa will be able to live the live André Rieu experience over the 21st and 22nd of October 2017 at Ster-Kinekor select Cinemas.
