In fact, Andre Rieu tickets are so sought after that the famous violinist regularly outsells rock and pop superstars like Coldplay, Madonna and Taylor Swift.
While his conducting and composing are highly acclaimed, Rieu’s true passion lies in his Stradivarius violin, he even did an interview in which he said that he sleeps with the violin in between him and his wife! While many purists look down upon Rieu’s “cheapening” of the classical genre, his dramatic flair and style has proved accessible to many music fans, with his performances contrasting heavily against the sterility of standard classical music.
