It will be the ultimate collaboration André Rieu’s fans can imagine. The world’s number one classical artist, his orchestra and guest performers joined on stage by South Africa’s National Treasure: The multi-award winning Soweto Gospel Choir. With an extra show already added to accommodate the overwhelming response from Johannesburg fans at the Coca-Cola Dome, Capetonians who missed out on securing their tickets will be delighted to know that an extra date for his performance at the Grand Arena, GrandWest has been confirmed. Show tickets for a performance on Friday August 24 are currently on sale.
With an Emmy, two Grammys, three ‘associated ‘Grammys, three SAMAS and one Oscar nomination, The Soweto Gospel Choir is a perfect addition to create the most magical South African concert to date.
Rieu is still topping the Music Charts, leaving behind artists like Justin Bieber, Sting and Coldplay. He remains one of the best-selling live acts in the world.
With arena performances in Cape Town, Durban and the first-ever performances in Johannesburg at the Coca-Cola Dome, thousands more fans will be able to experience the unique magic that they have come to expect from Rieu’s DVD’s and TV-specials: the maestro conducting his 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra and playing his world-famous Stradivarius violin to create a celebratory atmosphere, where fans are encouraged to get out of their seats and waltz in the aisles.
Rieu has sold more than 30 million albums globally, and has broken all classical concert records, packing stadiums and arenas with more than 700000 adoring fans each year. Over 100000 South African fans have attended his sold-out tours over the past two years and still there is no slowing down for the King of Waltz according to sales for his upcoming tour in August.
