Andre Rieu's dominance of the Australian music DVD charts sees more records continue to tumble, with his 'Live In Australia' DVD debuting at No.1 on this week's Music DVD charts along with an extraordinary ten times platinum accreditation (more than 150,000 copies sold into stores). Accompanying that truly startling number, 'Live In Australia' now holds the record for the largest ever first week sales of a music DVD, and it also becomes the first classical music DVD in Australian history to out-sell the No.1 album over on the music albums chart! Even more startling is the fact that these records were accomplished in only four days of sales. On hearing the news, Andre remarked, "It's the power of heart-warming music by great composers. It's a love-affair: I love my Australian fans, and they love me. Australia is my second home and it will always be!".
This week, Andre owns 55% of the top 20 DVD chart, with combined sales of more than five million units. Andre Rieu is truly a phenomenon.
