Demand hits record high for André Rieu show as more tickets are added



    Only North American full-stadium show will set new World Records

    TORONTO, Dec. 12 /CNW/ - ANDRE RIEU will unveil his first full-stadium
show, "A Romantic Vienna Night," in Toronto on Friday, December 14 and
Saturday, December 15, 2007. This is the only North American stop on the tour
and to keep up with ticket demand additional tickets have been added to
Friday's show. Saturday's finale has already sold out.
    Become a part of history by joining the largest crowd to ever watch an
indoor concert that is both a celebration of classical music and the arts. You
will be swept away to Europe in all its grandeur and opulence without leaving
the city! Concert goers will experience the romance of Vienna as RIEU
transforms ROGERS CENTRE into the beautiful IMPERIAL SCHONBRUNN PALACE
complete with full orchestra, two skating rinks, a grand ballroom, dancers,
horses and carriages and much more. RIEU, along with his 50 member Johann
Strauss Orchestra, bring it all to life under one roof.
    His unique and exuberant style makes his shows some of the most talked
about in the classical music industry. Fans spend more time dancing in the
aisle than sitting in their seats. His music is uplifting, inspirational, and
timeless and enjoyed by everyone.
    "Toronto fans have always received us warmly," commented Rieu. "I am
extremely happy to be bringing Vienna to them first with our unique
full-stadium show."
    RIEU will be joined by over 400 performers including Canadian Junior
Pairs Skaters Rachel Kirckland and Eric Radford along with Monica Pisotta and
Michael Stewart. In addition, dancers from the National Ballet of Vienna,
classically trained soloists and 200 Canadian Pipers will be part of the
extravaganza.
