André performs every year in front of thousands of fans set amongst the beautiful medieval backdrop of his beautiful home town of Maastricht, in The Netherlands. André will be joined by his famous Johann Strauss Orchestra, his sopranos, tenors and some very special guests and will be working his magic to present an unforgettable evening full of humour, music and emotion for every age. Be swept away with the incredible atmosphere, which attracts audiences from every corner of the globe who come together to share and experience beautiful music, song, laughter, dancing and a few tears!
The Maastricht concerts are André’s most popular concerts of the year and 2015 is shaping up to be his biggest and most spectacular concert ever to be screened in cinemas. The event will also include a host who as always, will interview André immediately after his performance as an exclusive for cinema audiences which has become a hallmark of his much-loved cinema events.
When asked if André had a message for his fans around the world, he said: “I am so delighted that my hometown Maastricht concert will once again be coming to cinemas in July! It’s going to be an incredible evening – and I can promise you it will be a musical night to remember. If you can’t join us in Maastricht, we will come to you, in your local cinema”.
