André Rieu on the Vrijthof - RESCHEDULED

Highly Valued Guest,

First of all, we hope that you are all in good health.

As you may have heard, it has been determined by the government that large-scale events may not take place in the Netherlands due to the Corona Crisis until 1 September 2020. This also includes André Rieu's concerts at the Vrijthof in Maastricht.

The good news is, of course, that these will take place in 2021. If you have a ticket, you are assured to be able to attend these beautiful concerts next year. Keep your current tickets well, these are the entrance tickets for next year.

We hope for your understanding and if you have any further questions, please refer to the website: on

Here you can also find what to do if you unexpectedly cannot attend the concert on that date. 

Of course we hope to make an unforgettable day with you next year.

Personal message from André Rieu

“ COVID-19 is touching all of our lives and at this time our primary concern is the safety and well-being of our beloved fans, musicians, team and audiences, all part of the big “André-Rieu-Family”.

It is with great sadness that we have to inform you today that, following the measures taken by the Government of the Netherlands, our traditional Open Air Concerts on the Vrijthof in Maastricht cannot take place in July 2020.

These cancellations will come as heartbreaking news to all of you – and they have been very difficult for us to make. Since 2005, my orchestra and I have been so proud to welcome the whole world to my beautiful hometown Maastricht in more than 100 concerts. Last year 150.000 fans came from 90 different countries to celebrate unforgettable evenings of music and joy together with us.

Even if we cannot be together this July, we remain optimistic that the situation will soon improve. We have worked very hard during the last weeks to reschedule all our concerts as we want to give you something joyful to look forward to.

Regarding the Vrijthof, all tickets and terrace packages remain valid for our open air concerts in July 2021. Please check for further information, dates and answers to your questions.

I know we are all very worried about the impact that COVID-19 is having on our loved ones and daily lives. My Johann Strauss Orchestra and I send you our very best wishes. We cannot wait to share music, joy and fun with you again very soon! The Waltz Must Go On – and it will!

Much love,

André Rieu''
