There are just eighteen days until the first semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2023. However, fans that were unlucky to get a ticket will now get a chance to buy tickets one last time as the final wave of tickets will go on sale on Monday, April 24th.
The rush to get tickets
Initially, the first wave of tickets were sold out in just 90 minutes as thousands of people across the UK, Europe and the world rushed to be a part of the Contest.
However, as the stage nears its final completion ahead of rehearsals, the final wave of tickets has been announced. Fans will be able to try getting tickets across all nine shows on Monday, April 24th at 12:00 BST (13:00 CET). Ticket prices will range from £30 to £380 depending on the show and location of the seat.
As with the first wave, fans wanting to buy tickets will need to have a Ticketmaster UK account and people are being urged to create and validate their account ahead of the 24th of April. Tickets will be available for the three live broadcasts, as well as the evening and afternoon preview shows.
The road to the Eurovision Song Contest 2023
Although Ukraine won the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest in Turin, due to the ongoing Russian invasion they are unable to host the 2023 event. Instead, the United Kingdom stepped in, as 2022’s runner-up. Liverpool will host the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest on the 9th, 11th, and 13th of May 2023. The contest will take place at the M&S Arena, with 37 countries taking part. The full production team behind the 2023 contest is listed here. The contest is a co-production between host broadcaster the BBC and last year’s winning broadcaster, Suspilne.
Alesha Dixon, Julia Sanina and Hannah Waddingham will host the semi-finals. Graham Norton will join the presenting team for the grand final.
