Violinist André Rio will tour abroad again in the fall. The 71-year-old is expected to play with an orchestra in October and November in Chile, Uruguay, Israel, Austria, Germany and others. It was announced on Friday Instagram.
In mid-December, Rio will give a concert in the Netherlands for the first time since the closure in 2020. After that he will perform in Maastricht and at the beginning of January at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam. For now, it’s about a bunch of shows that started ticket sales on Friday. His manager, Friday, said that if there is a lot of enthusiasm, additional concerts may be added.
With the onset of the pandemic in March 2020, the Limburg violinist was busy with his much-anticipated American tour. This will overtake Rio in April 2022. This is followed by a large series of shows in the UK and Ireland, among other places.
In July 2022, the artist can be found in the Vrijthof all month long, where he will return three years later for his traditional summer concert series. Many fans already bought tickets for the 2020 series in the fall of 2019, and they had to be cancelled. This year’s series has also been cancelled. His crew had to make the decision a few weeks in advance and weren’t sure what was technically likely in the summer.
There are still a few tickets available for the 2022 Summer Series on Vrijthof. Ryo is currently working on an album with his band happy together, which is scheduled to be released later this year.
