“Disappointing in Boston, wanted European songs!!!”

★★★☆☆

written by rcDuffy344 on 20/09/2023

SO we went to Andre R. last night at the TD garden..... (@ $140.00 each)!!!! We watch him all the time on PBS, and love it! Not the same last night.....he only played 2(of his) songs!!! But he introduced a whole lot more....3 tenors,(very good) the sopranos,(great voices), a marching band? Amen??? and Oh Happy Day???? Is this really Classical music???!!! I'm sorry but we did not sign up for that, we wanted to hear European songs, not other songs that he thought we would like!! ....we will watch Andre on PBS, that's ALL!!! I would like to have a program of songs BEFORE I go next time, if there is a next time. Btw, The Blue Danube was excellent, dancing was fun, need more of that!

I have loved Andre and particularly his Strauss waltzes with his fabulous orchestra.for many many years. When I saw that he was coming to Chicago I was under the impression that this tour would be very similar to what I’ve known his performances to be. I purchased VERY PRICEY main floor tickets. Then I watched this 2023 Tour on YouTube. I was sick as it WAS NOTHING like I expected. He was the Master of Ceremonies for a Variety Show. He talked and joked around with the audience as is his usual behavior but…too much talking. The Gospel singers, while talented, took up way too much time! Only 2 waltzes…SO TERRIBLY DISAPPOINTING :(
I was fortunate to get a full refund. Will he ever bring that beautiful European tour back? Must I go to Vienna? Is he just too tired these days?

“gospel nightmare, very disappointed- loud screaming...”

★☆☆☆☆

written by Silvia729 on 18/09/2023

I saw many of his concerts, even followed him to Canada. This was the worst show I have ever seen. First 1/2 was ok, but gospel screaming very disappointed. I don’t think this really belongs in his show. I will never go to see him in concert again.

Sadly, I too was very disappointed. I’ve loved Andre and his Strauss music for decades. I was thrilled to find he was coming to Chicago and purchased PRICEY main floor seating. Then I watched his 2023 tour on YouTube and I wanted to cry ????. It was nothing like I had expected. It was like a variety show and he was the Master of Ceremonies. The Gospel singers, while talented, sang for way too long. And only 2 Strauss waltzes!!??!! NOT ACCEPTABLE. I was able to receive a full refund and remain very disappointed ????

“Game of-two halves ”

★★☆☆☆

written by Scotts98 on 16/07/2023

I saw André on Thursday for the fourth time, and I won’t be going again. The first half was amazing with the bagpipes and drums, a beautiful young singer and Andre’s usual beautiful sets. The same cannot be said about the second half, completely ruined by gospel singers who insisted on screaming so loud most of the audience were wincing in pain and local dogs running for cover.. There was also far to many call backs for applause with my hands hurting from all the clapping Having seen this wonderful orchestra, including the time he brought on the village people I’m sad to say I think he’s lost his way.

I was at the concert Saturday. It poured with rain for 2 hours prior to the start so most people were huddled in ponchos but still anticipating a great show. No mention of this from Andre or thanks for sitting it out. Some parts of the show were good but overall I was disappointed having seen many of his other shows at the cinema or on tv and excited to actually be in Maastricht. The concert, and Andre, lacked spirit and content and seemed tired which made those gospel singers seem totally over the top with their screaming renditions. Was disappointed ????

Oh my,
I was afraid of that! How sad :(. I purchased expensive tickets for the Chicago September 12 show. I watched a 2023 performance on YouTube after my purchase and am seriously thinking of reselling them. I DO NOT WANT TO SEE A VARIETY SHOW!! I want those wonderful Strauss waltzes etc.. I want what he is known for…. I don’t want to pay for jumpin’ gospel music…too much talking and comedy….no thanks

“Disappointed ”

★★★★☆

written by on 11/07/2023

Went to the concert in Maastricht 7th July 2023, enjoyed, even loved, most of it but was disappointed when a Gospel Group came on. I, and many more on the same coach trip as my husband and I, expected to hear more from the tenors and the beautiful voices of the opera singers. Instead we had almost half an hour of very repetitive gospel singing. We wanted to go to the Vienna concert but are having second thoughts now...

My sentiments exactly! Do you think the Vienna concert will have this 2023 Tour content?

“SAME OLD FORMAT!”

★★★☆☆

written by clairpatricia on 09/01/2023

Saw Andrew Rieu Concert in Amsterdam on 6 January 2023 as part of our river cruise package. Most of us were disappointed. My husband and myself watch him quite frequently on TV and have seen two beamed live concerts at the cinema. He spoke in Dutch all the time and when mentioning the nationalities attending I understood enough to know that he did not mention the British. The soprano was excellent as were the 3 tenors but A R seems to follow the same old format from years ago. The whole thing seemed a bit tired and jaded. We wouldn't go to another concert.

“ART WITHOUT CONSCIENCE ”

★☆☆☆☆

written by Littlear27 on 16/06/2020

I resort to posting this review because I have not received any replies to my emails or messages from the Andre Rieu Organization. Ticketmaster or StubHub. Following are a few excerpts from those notes: 1. "Due to COVID19, the March 13 2020 Florida BB&T Andre Rieu Event was not held...but the thousands of fans who bought tickets were NOT allowed a refund like other artists gave to their fans. This event was rescheduled for March 5 2021...ONE YEAR LATER! They have our money and they may OR may not.. hold the event then. Is this a fair way to treat long time fans? More than disappointing, we find it unconscionable". 2. "Google says that BB&T concert seating capacity is about 20,000.I paid $400.00 x 2 for my tickets to the March 13 concert. If one used an average price of only $150.00 x 20,000 seats, it appears that up to $3 MILLION DOLLARS may have been spent for tickets, but the Andre Rieu Concert has decided NOT to refund ONE PENNY to his weary, long suffering fans out here dealing with the Corona-virus, lost jobs, lost income and.. possible loss-of-life health issues. I've written several times and I've tried to be respectful, but I have received no response. Once a big fan, I am now extremely disappointed." 3. "You took the ticket money from thousands of fans for tickets to your March concert in Florida. Then you postponed it for ONE year. At one of the most tragic periods in history, you have decided to keep our money while millions face financial problems through no fault of their own. Not your problem I guess.. No one responds to my messages with an explanation so I resort to these public messages to reach you. Your once beautiful smile now seems more like a sneer and the sound of your wonderful music now falls on tainted ears. What happens next year jf you postpone again? Wait another year? Is interest-free money that enticing to your people? Come on Andre. Buy one less Tuxedo and 'Do The Right Thing'. "

If you pay to listen to garbage mass-marketed for music illiterates, expect a cynical business model to be operating behind the scenes. Learn something about music and life.

“Offensive UK comments”

★★★☆☆

written by on 13/07/2017

I recently attended a Maastricht concert on the 08 July. I found comments made by Mr Rieu regarding the UK and Brexit offensive and totally un called for. When asking the audience where they came from, when people said Britain he responded "this is Europe" followed by "are you in? out? in? out? etc, this gave people from other countries the opportunity to ridicule us and laugh at us, considering that he says music brings people together and creates harmony, he should really practice what he preaches as his comments just provoked others into making fun of us, In addition the concert content was poor as was the sound but I think the final straw was bringing "the Hoff" on to try and sing a few songs along with Kit from nightrider. The sad thing is that I have been going to his concerts since 2011 and enjoyed them all up until now, but for me he needs to lay off the Brit bashing, he makes a lot of money from the Brits and making silly comments such as he has been doing is not going the right way in improving relations, also I tried to add my comments onto his website but they will only show positive feedback which again is wrong. I for one will not be attending anymore of his concerts.

★★★★★

written by on 18/12/2012

The Concert was fantastic, enjoyed every minute of it, the orchestra, the singers, the musicians, the pipers. The whole show was amazing. From booking the tickets to driving home everything went well. Cant wait for Andre and his fabulous orchestra and singers to come to Manchester Men Arena again. 1st Class entertainment.
