The Dutch TV program EenVandaag (broadcast on Sept. 5, 2009) followed André Rieu in the week preceding the Amsterdam ArenA concerts.

Special guest in this show is the Dutch comedian André van Duin.

Will André's violin survive this comedian?

Will André and the JSO play in the Middle East?? See the video and find-out yourself.

In one of his phone calls André mentions that after his promotional tour in Brazil, he will fly to London to have a meeting with Dame Edna Average.

Who is this eccentric "lady"? Known for her obvious glasses, "Hello Possums" and hot flashes due to her menopause.

Dame Edna is played by the Australian actor Barry Humphries, who lives and performs in the UK. Many celebrities have appeared in her show, some regret they ever did.

Have a look at this YouTube video to get an impression of this character.
