Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the audience had to show QR-code (vaccinated), identification, and wear face masks during the entire concert. It seemed to be no obstacle to sing and dance.André adapted the high-five ritual in a most funny way!!!
Currently André is hot news in most Dutch current affairs- and show news TV programs and newspapers.We cannot post them all, we made a selection.André in one of the magazines: “Wednesday's concert in Lisbon is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and emotional of my entire career. It was an indescribable feeling, finally being able to stand on stage again and make music with my orchestra. After the concert we fell into each other's arms with tears in our eyes.”
