The Maastricht concert features the maestro in his element, with his famous 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra, sopranos, tenors and very special guests.

“When I founded the Johann Strauss Orchestra in 1987, there were only 12 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,” Rieu has said.

"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.”

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, including Australia, to experience one of the most emotional live music experiences possible, set against the backdrop of the equally as elegant medieval town square.

The André Rieu's 2017 Maastricht Concert cinema screening will be held at participating Event Cinemas across Australia on Saturday, July 29 and Sunday, July 30 at 2pm (local time for all locations). To book your tickets now, head to eventcinemas.com.au.
