Mr. Rieu: The internet e-mail system justified its existence when a messsage was forwarded to me with an attachment, your violin and orchestra were the attachment, the song was "Amazing Grace" with a troup of bagpipers accompanying you. I was mesmerized by it. Though I now live in South Carolina, I was born and grew up in New York City, and know Radio City very well, which prompted my purchasing your Radio City concert, and in the 2 weeks that I've had it I have listened to it at least 6 or 7 times. Thank you for sharing your music, it touches my soul. My only wish now is that you will someday come to the Palace Theater here in Myrtle Beach. It's no comparison to Radio City, but as you say with your music,I can dream.
Good afternoon Andre, I hope everyone is well and having lots of fun. I was just watching Sex and The City and the back ground music they were playing i'm pretty sure was you and your orchestra, your music is so unique you can tell it apart from other classical music. So far i have only been to one of your concerts in Toronto 2010 as i just found you in June 2010 and i was so hoping to see you all again this year but sadly you will not be in Toronto but i am sure the rest of Canada will be very happy to have you and i guess we really do have to share you, isn't it nice to be wanted by so many people , you most certainly are loved through out the world and doesn't that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, a big hello to everyone, love you blue eyes. Barb

Please come back to UK really soon and make some more magic .

Dear Andre and the JSO,
My husband and I attended your concert in Adelaide last night and I would like to thankyou all for your beautiful music and the happiness your music brings to us.You and your orchestra exceeded all our expectations and to see the Seekers perform again bought back some wonderful memories.We are now looking forward to visiting your hometown of Maastricht and hearing your beautiful music again,your music is food for the soul.Thankyou for the joy that you bring to the world.Enjoy the rest of your visit here and safe journey home.
Love to you all
Wilma and Paul Brown.
A big thank you to you, the orchestra, Mirusia, The Seekers, and everyone in your team for putting on such a magnificent show on Tuesday 3 May 2011. I took my mum and mother-in law. This was our 3rd show we have been to. This year was certainly a long wait....since we purchased the tickets back in October 2009!! and it was definately worth the wait too!!!
I just loved the snow scene....and the little surprise at the end of the song...ha ha ha!! (didnt get us though).
We look forward to seeing you again next time you are in Adelaide....please dont leave it too long ;-) I still have your songs ringing in my head the next day...thanks it really makes me feel happy! Catchya soon xx
Hello Andre John and I had tickets for our 55th wedding anniversary October 27th 2010 in Brisbane so have kept them till you returned 19th May so will have our celebration this year with you and our other favourites The Seekers We have most of your D V Ds and You and all the orchestra we love.Thank you for all the joy you bring with your music.See you soon.
Hi Andre, When you next come back to the UK I hope that you will decide to perform at The Royal Albert Hall rather than the O2. Listening to an interview you gave recently on Classic FM you said the RAH was your very favourite venue, mainly because the acoustics are so wonderful there. I know it doesn't hold as many people as the O2 but you could always do a whole week there (many artists do) which would enable us devotees to go to more than one concert. I do hope you will consider it. The Royal Albert Hall has a wonderful aura about it and your music would just be so perfect. I have the original concert you did from there on Dvd and it is amazing. Thanks for all the wonderful music and smiles - please come back soon.

Not many days now before you and your talented orchestra play in Christchurch for the first time.. It's a pity we can't say welcome to the "Garden City " anymore, but we do extend to you a big Welcome. We are looking forward to the lift in our spirits that we know your music wil give. My friends and I are wondering if there will be a DVD out of your concert in Christchurch, we are hoping so.
See you Sunday, 8.00pm.
New Zealand is waiting.
Greetings Andre or should I say sweet dreams as by now it will be time for you to rest before you embark on your travels once again, even further afield to Auckland. I hope they have the sunshine for you as here in the UK it is still nice and hot. I wish you all the luck in the world and great success for your 2 concerts to come. I'm sure the 'Kiwis' are really looking forward to your visit but they know the wait will be worth it as they are in for some fantastic music, after all one of the greatest violinests in the world has just travelled half way around the world to see them. He brings with him brilliant musicians and singers, great joy and happiness and a special charisma that always warms the heart and puts smiles on ones face. Such a special person that we must treasure. Lots of Love from 'The Lady in Red at the MEN Arena and safe travelling on your journey to N. Zealand. Lady Margaret.
We were at your concert in Dublin (29/04/2011) and had a most enjoyable evening. I saw you the last time you played in Ireland and I must say that the show is still the best nights enrtrtainment ever.I know the concert had to be rescheduled but it well worth waiting for.
hope it wont be as long again before you return
Dear Mary and Jeff, Glanville, Australia
I think the cost of Gold membership would be around 68 Aus.Dollars. I know it is E49.95 [Euros].
I am sure you would agree that this would be the very best Aus Dollars you ever spent!!
There is no price to be placed on Andre and his wonderful music etc.
Good luck and take care.
Thank you Andre for last night's concert in Adelaide
wonderful as usual see you next year again
So glad you had a super First Night with your fans in Adelaide (I am green with envy) what a concert it must have been with the Seekers back in action, I was always a fan of there's in fact I still have some of their records stored away. Perhaps when you plan your next trip to the UK(next year we Hope) you could think of asking them to come as well, might be to far to travel who knows.I know the rest of you concerts will go well. Best wishes to you, all the JSO and all the staff that travel with you. All keep safe and well and hurry back to the UK PLEASE.
I was fortunate enough to go to each of the concerts that you did in Adelaide South Australia. I was even more elated that you included the Seekers in your performance. The Seekers have always been my most favourite band from the past, and you and your orchestra are most certainly the best in the world. Every single member of the orchestra are fantastic. I would love to thank you and the orchestra for bringing joy to everyone, for making people happy with your music.
I would love to become a gold member but how much would it cost in Australian dollars
Dear Andre and JSO,
last night in Adelaide was my third time at your concert together with my cousin Maria, yes you have warmed our hearts with your music homour and those talented & beautiful people that are always there behind you on stage wearing beautiful smiles. We had a most traumatic 2010 year illness, loss of lives to cancer ,not to talk about the disasters in our world. Thank you for bringing your music to us and hope that you will be coming to Adelaide for many years to come. This year has been a long time to wait but worth every minute of it. May God Bless you, your family and all the JSO with the best of health.
Wishing you a sfe journey , you are one in a million.
with love and respect.
