He placed second at Eurovision 2014 as part of duo The Common Linnets and is back this year to fly the flag for The Netherlands in Lisbon. And now Waylon is making another comeback: to the stage of Eurovision In Concert. He performed “Calm After The Storm” with Ilse De Lange in 2014 and will perform his solo track “Outlaw In ‘Em” alongside twelve other confirmed acts in Amsterdam on April 14

The other twelve acts come from all over Europe.

Two acts who won’t have to travel too far to get the concert at the Melkweg are Belgium’s Sennek and Germany’s Michael Schulte.

France’s Madame Monsieur and the UK’s SuRie don’t have too far to travel either: flights from Paris and London take a little over an hour, and if either act aren’t aviation inclined, they can also take advantage of new Eurostar services to Amsterdam too.

Acts travelling from further afield include Irish balladeer Ryan O’Shaughnessey, Albania’s Eugent Bushpepa, Austria’s César Sampson, Spain’s Alfred & Amaia, Switzerland’s Zibbz, Latvia’s Laura Rizzotto and Czech Republic’s Mikolas Josef.

Armenia’s Sevak Khanagyan will likely have the longest journey of all of the announced acts so far, with no direct flights between Amsterdam and Yerevan.

The thirteen acts from this year’s intake will join Belgium’s only Eurovision winner Sandra Kim, who won the contest in 1986 with “J’aime la vie”. She was announced as a guest act in December 2017.

Last year 34 acts from the class of Eurovision 2017 performed in Amsterdam, so we can expect more to confirm in the coming weeks for the concert. Eurovision In Concert is the largest event on the Eurovision circuit and has rapidly become a mandatory stop for Eurovision contestants on their promo tours.

Read the article: “Last year 34 acts from the class of Eurovision 2017 performed in Amsterdam, so we can expect more to confirm in the coming weeks for the concert.”
See? This isn’t the complete lineup.

Oh my, For Sevak I will buy tickets to Amsterdam? I wish he would perform something in English as well. I have heard he likes Coldplays’s “hymn for the weekend”

It’s shaping up to be a great show, I’m considering going, but I thought it was going to take place at the Heineken Music Hall rather than the Melkweg?
Is Edsilia Rombely going to co-host? Perhaps she could borrow that dress from her sister-in-law…

What do people see in waylon. If the UK sent that song it would be bottom 5, that’s for sure.

Wow so much HATE for someone you don’t even know.because you don’t like the song doesn’t me others don’t. If you have nothing nice to say then say nothing.

Well, you obviously haven’t seen him performing the song then. Da’s all.

I did, but you obviously cant accept that some people dont like his song.

That is not what you said. You wrote “If the UK sent that song it would be bottom 5, that’s for sure.” A statement which is highly debatable.

Sanny Mofdh
Guest

That statement implies that i dislike the song, which is true.

It’s debatable according to you, and i can agree with that, but for me it isnt.

My country might not be the the eat entry this year, but il so glad RTE finally realised that pre-contest marketing is vital by sending Ryan to Amsterdam. This is where the fanbases are formed and good opportunities to perfect the vocal for May.
I remember Ireland never marketed their acts before, the semi final was really the first time the Irish act performed live for large groups and by then it would be too late.

Stop it. Ireland is terrible this year and that gay- russian propaganda is not gonna work.

Darren
Guest

I didn’t say we were great this year, I was talking about the marketing and appearances at pre-contest shows. Also, the music video is stating explicitly that the two guys are gay, just because they are dancing. Pretty sure it’s open to interpretation of which you’ve come to that conclusion.
Perhaps you should “stop it?”

Ireland’s song is awesome and I’ll vote for it in May 🙂
