From the Dutch TV Guide:

Through British Eyes

André Rieu and his Johann Strauss Orchestra are world famous.  

The British people are also quite under the spell of the violin virtuoso.

British SKY TV will air a ten part report series with a look behind the scenes of his concerts. In the first episode (from 2013) we see how the maestro prepares himself for his performances in his hometown of Maastricht. Here we will see performances by Jermaine Jackson and the Josti Band together on stage with Rieu. After Maastricht the British camera crew will follow him to Australia, Argentina and Mexico.
