André Rieu US shows caught in coronavirus debate

Strauss maestro André RieuAndré Rieu’s March 2020 dates in the US have been caught in the coronavirus/covid19 debate. Even though the US president announced flight bans from 26 European countries, major concerts are being allowed to go ahead in the US. These include a number of major shows by André Rieu in Florida, Nevada and elsewhere.

This has led to a situation where many fans are wondering if they should risk attending the concerts. In many cases, fans have been almost pleading with Rieu and the local organisers to cancel, which would allow them to get refunds.

At the time of writing this article, the André Rieu site was down, while the Facebook page was still selling tickets to upcoming shows in the US and Europe.

The current Rieu tour has been one of his most successful so far, ranking among the most profitable this year behind Céline Dion and above Andrea Bocelli and Tool (!).
