One month from today, the Eurovision Song Contest 2017 will kick off at the International Exhibition Center in Kyiv with the First Semi-Final. And tomorrow, 10 April, fans will get a new opportunity to purchase tickets for the nine shows — including the Grand Final on 13 May. Ticket prices range from 8 to 500 Euros. Let’s break it down!
Official ticketing agent Concert.ua has announced that the next batch of tickets will go on sale tomorrow, without specifying a starting hour. This means that fans will have to keep an eye on the website and on social media if they want to purchase tickets for any of the nine shows advertised.
What are the nine Eurovision shows?
Eurovision will consist of nine shows, as follows (all times are local times, that is CET+1 hour):
Three shows that will be broadcast live: Semi-Final 1 (May 9, 22:00), Semi-Final 2 (May 11, 22:00), Grand Final (May 13, 22:00). These are the shows that everyone gets to watch on TV and when televoting comes into play.
Three shows will take place on the evening a day before the respective live shows: Semi-Final 1, second dress rehearsal (May 8, 22.00), Semi-Final 2 second dress rehearsal (May 10, 22.00), Grand Final second dress rehearsal (May 12, 22:00). They are also known as jury shows. The shows will be recorded but not broadcast live, and the national juries will score the performances. Their votes are combined with the televote the following day.
Three more shows will take place in the afternoon (on the day of the live broadcasts): Semi Final 1 third dress rehearsal (May 9, 16:00), Semi Final 2 third dress rehearsal (May 11, 16:00), Grand Final dress rehearsal (May 13, 14:00). These shows will not be recorded and will not be taken into account by the national juries. However, the participants will perform as usual and the shows are recommended for families, as they are suitable for children thanks to the time of day when they are being staged. They are also known as Family shows.
