Sky is giving classical music fans a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet the legendary violinist André Rieu at one of his concerts.

The broadband provider is running a free prize draw for Sky TV subscribers, with three pairs of tickets up for grabs to see the virtuoso perform in Maastricht on July 13th.

Rieu, leader of the world famous Johann Strauss Orchestra, has been blowing audiences away for the last 20 years, but his popularity has never been greater.

Sky Arts 2 recently paid homage to the strings maestro by changing its name to Sky Arts Rieu, and showing a series of concerts and documentaries about his life and career.

But watching the great violinist perform on TV is no substitute for being there live in the flesh.

The Sky competition winners will be flown out to one of Rieu's summer evening shows in Maastricht's Vrijthof, considered to be the most romantic square in The Netherlands.

They will also have the chance to meet 'The King of the Waltz' during the evening, while the prize includes two nights in a four-star hotel in Maastricht.

To be eligible to win, customers must be 18 or over and available to travel on the morning of Friday July 12th, returning on Sunday July 14th.

The deadline for competition entries is 10am on June 25th.
