Violin master at the arena

Violin master and three-time Classic BRIT Award winner André Rieu has announced his return to the UK and Ireland later this year.

This tour will include an eagerly-awaited date at Capital FM Arena Nottingham on December 10.

Rieu’s last UK and Ireland concert series in December 2013 were a huge success with all 14 concerts sold out.

André Rieu said: “The British and Irish are really a fantastic audience. Their sense of humour and enthusiasm are unmatched. “

He continued: “For my orchestra and me it’s really like a warm bath, like being amongst friends.

“Every year we welcome more and more British at our home concert in Maastricht.”

He added: “And even there they create this unforgettable atmosphere. So we are looking forward to coming back.”

Tickets for the concert at Capital FM Arena Nottingham are available at a cost of £44.88 and £100.80 (includes administration fee).

The tickets can be booked online at www.capitalfmarena.com/online/AndreRieu, via 0843 373 3000 or in person at Ticketing & Customer Services, Bolero Square, The Lace Market, Nottingham, NG1 1LA.
