The Dutch Strauss-master screened last weekend’s Maastricht concert to 586 venues across the UK and Ireland.
The box-office numbers are just in. Rieu made £1,447,086, more than any concert ever screened in UK cinemas.
He is now about to screen the concert in 700 cinemas in the Netherlands, Belgium, Denmark, Spain, Poland, Israel, followed by France, Germany, Mexico, Argentina and Brazil later this year, bringing the total to 1,500.
The world can’t get enough of Andre Rieu.
