Brilliant 

 

Glasgow, SSE Hydro, April 23rd 2022.  £112.50 or £137.50 a ticket.

 

Before that there's a Christmas special a week before Christmas in Maastricht, and he's playing Amsterdam on January 8th.  You could do worse.

Where in Glasgow ? 

 

SSE Hydro.  Originally planned for April 2021 but postponed due to you-know-what.  His Maastricht pre-Christmas gig is indoors, whereas his more renowned Maastricht gigs are summertime events in the main square - usually through the month of July.

 

Here's a list of tour venues.

Go to one of his concerts in his home town Maastricht beginning of July annually in normal years - it’s a bucket list lifetime experience

I can’t lie it’s not really my cup of tea. It’s hard to deny it’s is an amazing spectacle, though. I love it when they get pissed up and the crowd are waltzing down the aisles and stuff. If I had a drink or whatever and flicking through the channels I have found myself memorised and in hysterics over in equal measures. 
 

Fair play to the boy he has seen a niche in that market and utilised for the gain of many people.

Andre Rieu is classical music for people that don't understand classical music.

File under the same heading as Catherine Jenkins and Jane McDonald.

 

A bawhair away from being a Butlins act.

True . I like the juxtaposition of posh audience getting bevied up and really going to town dancing etc beats Dickens pub anytime 😂

Good to see people enjoying themselves but far too much of a cringe fest for me. 

 

Middle aged / elderly middle class folk thinking they're being crazy and out there.

What do you mean that surprises ya!!! Cheeky ****🤨🤣 

 

Haha does plenty for me James!!😍  love Jane , sure shes from Inverkeithing way originally 🤔 Celtica Nova are always worth a listen too. Traditional Scottish stuff with more than a hint of rock/metal in there... 

 

Theres a beautiful Josh Grobban/Kelly Clarkson track - All I Ask of You that I love too

 


My favourite song however is The Kymatiks - That Road Live... Just blows me away every time I hear it...

Lol only joking u I assumed you were in your 20s for some reason !!! Not that keen on Andrew Lloyd Webber but that song is no bad . Saw Streisand sing “ the music of the night” in concert with a few tenors . Incredible . Open air concert too .

Jesus no , I wish I was , at times i might get away with claiming 30/35 but long past there....

 

Im not a huge Lloyd Webber fan either but there is the odd song. I like the film Chicago too if that adds to the surprise 🤣
