On stage and off, France’s Bilal Hassani regularly proves that he’s a “Roi”. From slaying the views on YouTube as one of France’s biggest social media stars to winning France’s highly competitive Destination Eurovision, our boy knows how to turn heads and win hearts. And he’ll be doing it all again on Wednesday, May 15 when he takes his turn on stage at the Wiwi Jam 2019 in Tel Aviv!
Bilal will unveil his revamp of “Roi” during his first rehearsal at Eurovision on May the 10th. And just five days later he’ll be dropping it live for a braying mob of Eurofans at our party inside Theatre Club.
Speaking to us on Skype earlier this spring, he said that the new version will be sufficiently big for the massive Eurovision arena. We can’t wait to feel the heat and listen as he drops that beat!
The Wiwi Jam 2019 at Theatre Club
Yes, we’re baaaaack! Our not-to-miss evening of songs, selfies and slayage returns in 2019 at the stunning Theatre Club. The event will take place on Wednesday May 15 from 22:00 and runs until the sun comes up. As in recent years, we’ll have more than a dozen acts keen to celebrate the fandom.We’ll be spinning non-stop Eurovision tracks in between acts.
The Theatre Club is a large dance club and music venue located in Jaffa, just a five-minute walk from Eurovision Village and Charles Clore Park. The historic building served as a theatre in the early 20th century and today welcomes up to 1,500 people for music events and red carpet celebrations. It should look very familiar to our viewers: it served as host venue of Israel Calling 2016 and 2017.
Tickets for the one-night extravaganza cost 20 euros. That’s 15 euros for the ticket + a small booking fee.
This is the Theatre Club during Israel Calling 2016. And yes that is me singing along to Nadav at the end.
