Jerry Massie from Buffalo, New York
My wife and I drove from Ohio just for this concert, and we had ringside seats -- second row, center. As an experienced concert- goer I knew the sound would not be ideal so close to the stage, yet it was very acceptable overall. It was well worth the slightly diminished sound quality just to see Andre and the orchestra members up close and personal. And, as expected, they were consummate performers -- wonderfully entertaining. As a concert organist myself, I appreciated the quality of the classical repertoire performed. Andre and the JSO are world-class musicians all. Still, as a boomer who grew up on rock n roll and pop music I would have appreciated a bit more regional and culturally- relevant music, such as he played in the encores. Our hotel was one block from the concert venue with incredible views of Canalside. Nice restaurants abounded everywhere. And Buffalo is doing an exceptional job of revitalizing the Canalside and downtown area. We'll be back!

WHAT A SHOW!
The evening was filled with joy from beginning to end. The audience was beaming with happiness all rooted in the celebration of music. This was an evening my beautiful Grandmother and I will cherish forever. We cannot wait for Andre Rieu’s return to Buffalo!

FIRST TIME ... LOVED IT!
What a fun, happy show and even though I don’t like opera, I really appreciated the fantastic voices of all the singers. At the end it got crazy fun and I really felt sorry for the people who left early to beat the exit crowd. They missed the best part! Highly, highly recommended!

MAGNIFICENT MUSICAL EXPERIENCE
We have eagerly awaited the return of Andre Rieu to the Philadelphia area! This latest September 21, 2018 concert was completely wonderful--full of fantastic music, excellent soloist singing, exuberant orchestra arrangements, charming humor, and the wise guiding leadership of the maestro, Andre Rieu! Of course people get up and waltz in the aisles, of course there is a bagpipe procession, of course there is a dancing balloon drop, of course there is a flashlight starry sky audience participation event, and of course there are a half dozen encores! After more than 30 years, Andre Rieu continues to amaze and enchant, and lovingly explore all the many genres of music and share them with all of us, his devoted fans. A truly marvelous and memorable experience!
Jo Nickel from Cedar Falls, IA (Rosemont, IL concert)
Andrea's passion for music as a vessel for people of any age to enjoy classical music and music in general is so well portrayed at his concerts. The world is a better place listening and watching Andrea, his orchestra, and featured vocalists from all over the globe. We are all one, if joy and kindness prevails. Andrea's success is built on his heartfelt attempt to create a world view, not an individual view of relationships. We had a wonderful weekend in Rosemont, IL. Allstate arena, hotel within walking distance to the arena, wonderful restaurants, shopping, friendly staffs, and ease of access to all and downtown Chicago made the weekend a very memorable and uplifting event. Faith, hope and love; these three, and love is the greatest of these. Make love your aim! Andrea does, and it reverberated beautifully throughout the concert.
