SANTIAGO 〓 André Rieu encountered an emergency declaration


André Rieu, called “the modern waltz king,” and his orchestra “Johan Strauss Orchestra” were stuck in Santiago, Chile. The group was scheduled to perform 4 performances (17th, 18th, 19th and 20th) at Santiago’s Movistar Arena this time, but an emergency declaration was declared on the 18th and citizens were not allowed to go out at night. As a result, it was canceled that the performance on the 19th and 20th.

Adopting a stage that everyone can enjoy, Rieu has led his orchestra and expanded the world, but this tour was planned in response to the great success of 2017 last time. 40,000 tickets were selled in 4 performances. However, in Santiago on the 18th, some students who oppose the public price of increase have become mob, such as igniting the subway station or destroying the store. President Pinella declared a state of emergency in Santiago on the night of 18th, mobilized the army, restricted the movement in the city, and fell into a situation of cracking down the mob.

Chile is considered to be the most stable country in South America, and the APEC summit will be held next month in Santiago. However, this time, people’s anger over rising living costs, widening inequality, and increasing national debt has exploded. Due to the state of emergency, the flight schedule was disrupted, and the flight to Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina, where Rieu and his crew were scheduled to ride, was cancelled. For this reason, Rieu’s party left Santiago by taking a charter flight.
