.
Andre Rieu new album Forever Vienna had debuted on the Billboard 200, marking the first time the renowned violinist appears on the American pop chart.

Forever Vienna also tops the Traditional Classical chart, the fifth No. 1 for Rieu on that chart. Rieu also kicked off his CD release and "Celebration of Music" North American tour with a special performance on the TODAY show in NYC's Rockefeller Plaza complete with his 55-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra. This was the largest band to perform in TODAY show history.

Forever Vienna, a special CD+DVD edition, which features some of the greatest performances from the Dutch violinist, conductor and composer, was released in the U.S. on June 29th through Universal Music Enterprises (UMe). The Forever Vienna CD contains beloved titles such as the "Strauss & Co," "Carnival Of Venice," "Wine, Women And Song" and many more - all arranged by Rieu - and the DVD features stunning highlights from two of Rieu's recent worldwide concerts: "Live In Australia" and "Live in Maastricht III," including a stirring tribute to Michael Jackson with a performance of "Ben," and a breathtaking version of "Amazing Grace," accompanied by the 100-member Australian Pipe Band. A ten-track CD edition is also available.
