2024 is going to be a fantastic year for those in love with music in Vienna. The André Rieu concert on November 8 is going to be one of the highlight, but most people agree that the two biggest events in 2024 will be the Coldplay concerts in Vienna and the Taylor Swift concerts in Vienna. Which one would you like to experience? Maybe all three of them?
There will be a great atmosphere at all the mentioned concerts, but it will be a bit more relaxed as André Rieu enters the stage together with the Johan Strauss orchestra in Stadthalle on November 8. The man is actually 75 years old, but he is doing concerts with the energy of a teenager. The day before the concert in Vienna, André Rieu will have a concert in Bratislava, and immediately after the concert in Vienna is finished, André Rieu and the orchestra will travel to Budapest where they will hold yet another concert on November 9.
Since André Rieu founded the Johan Strauss orchestra in 1987 in Vienna, many people believe that André Rieu is from Austria. That isn’t so. He was born in the Netherlands in the city of Maastricht in 1949. He had his big breakthrough as he founded the orchestra in 1987, and today he has had more than one billion views on YouTube and tickets for all his concerts worldwide are sold within minutes (normally).

What has made André Rieu famous?
André Rieu is primarily known for his interpretations and performances of classical and waltz music composed by others, such as Johann Strauss II, Franz Lehár, and Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, among others. While he is not widely recognized as a composer of original music, Rieu occasionally arranges and adapts existing compositions to suit his style and the instrumentation of his Johann Strauss Orchestra. However, his main focus and contribution to the music world lie in his captivating performances and arrangements rather than composing original pieces.
