André Rieu Concerts

André Rieu, MotorPoint Arena Nottingham & Wembley Arena London, Dec 2017

On 16 December 2017 at the Motorpoint Arena, Nottingham, and on 22nd and 23rd December at Webley Arena (SSE Arena) in London, The Reading Scottish Pipe Band were honoured to be asked back to join André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra on their UK tour. The band had an amazing time on all three days and every member of the band were thrilled to be asked to perform again with such a fantastic orchestra and on such a big stage
