Record breaking results for the world’s most popular classical artist has prompted special Encore Screenings.
The satellite-delivered concert of André Rieu’s 2015 Maastricht Concert in Cinemas, soared to #3 at the Australian Box Office in its recent screening.
The special event screening has become the Highest Grossing Music Concert in Cinemas of all time. Due to overwhelming demand, select Event Cinemas will screen special encore screenings this September for those who missed out or those wanting to experience the magic again.
Distributed by CinemaLive, the André Rieu’s 2015 Maastricht Concert in Cinemas grossed over $A1.3 million in Australia & New Zealand with just one screening on Saturday July 25 and one on Sunday July 26 in both markets. André Rieu’s 2015 Maastricht Concert in Cinemas is now the most successful Music Concert ever to screen in Australian cinemas, way ahead of the One Direction: Where we Are concert screened in October 2014 which grossed $A333,910.
In the UK earlier this month, CinemaLive’s André Rieu’s 2015 Maastricht Concert in Cinemas broke single night and lifetime box office records for a Music Concert in the UK after taking more than £1m on one night.
CinemaLive Co-Director Janelle Mason said: “Andre Rieu’s annual Maastricht Concert in Cinemas continues to grow in popularity every year across the world. We have been working with the Rieus for six years to bring the concert to cinema audiences across all continents and each year the scale of the production is bigger and better than the last. With coverage by 29 cameras, including new drone-camera technology, the satellite- delivered concert is a remarkably intimate, comfortable and affordable experience for cinema patrons”.
When asked why cinema audiences for Rieu’s Maastricht Concert had grown so significantly in a year, Mason said “Andre really connects with his audience. It’s impossible to come out of the cinema without a smile on your face and a spring in your step. He makes people happy. Word is getting around”.
