Extra Aberdeen date for Andr� Rieu.

Due to popular demand, the world’s most successful violinist André Rieu, along with his Johann Strauss Orchestra, will now perform at the GE Oil & Gas Arena in Aberdeen for two nights on December 9 and 10.

Fans of the Dutch ‘King of Waltz’ can look forward to a completely new programme with this fantastic show; an evening full of humour, music and emotion for young and old.

Immerse yourself in romantic melodies, or get out of your seat to dance in the aisles to an up-beat waltz and tunes from opera, operettas, film music and well known folk songs.

André said: “It’s fantastic that we will finally be coming to Aberdeen for the first time - the Johann Strauss Orchestra and I are looking very much forward to our two concerts there.”

Brian Horsburgh, AECC’s Managing Director, said: “We are delighted to have another show for André Rieu. Due to the high level of demand, a lot of customers were unable to secure tickets. The addition of this show will allow more people to witness the talented Mr Rieu here in Aberdeen.”

The AECC has also announced Elton John will be joined by very special guest, Bright Light Bright Light, the New York and London residing electronic-pop artist, for his outdoor concert at the centre on Saturday, June, 20.
