Have you got your front row seat at Andre Rieu’s musical extravaganza in Maastricht?

Our broadcast of Rieu’s legendary Maastricht concert gets you close enough to see the sparkle in Rieu’s cravat pin and the twinkle in his eye.

Although he’s affectionately known as the King of Waltz, André Rieu’s popularity transcends far beyond the boundaries of classical music. His concerts are glittering, technicolour events, with spectacular scenery, vibrant costumes, firework displays, balloon drops and dazzling light shows.

Why is Maastricht so special?

His 60-strong Johann Strauss Orchestra has a hectic global touring schedule, selling out stadiums everywhere they go, but the highlight is undoubtedly when they return to Maastricht, Rieu’s hometown. For several evenings every summer, the city’s stunning medieval square Vrijthof is turned into an open-air concert hall, with tens of thousands of fans travelling from all over the world to join the party of the year.

What's in store this year?

The legendary Andre Rieu has sent us a special message about this year’s Maastricht Concert, ‘Amore, My Tribute to Love’:
