Returning for its 13th year, the London Eurovision Party will usher in this year’s season of pre-party events before the big contest takes place in May. For fans who can’t make it to Eurovision, this is a chance to get close to the stars in a more intimate setting. For those of you who are headed to Rotterdam, it’s an opportunity to size up the competition more than a month ahead of time.
On Saturday February 15th tickets went on sale via TicketWeb.
London Eurovision Party: Ticket prices and info
The concert will take place on March 29 at Café de Paris near London’s Leicester Square.
Unreserved Standing tickets cost £61.31 (that’s £54.50 for the tickets + £6.81 in fees, excluding delivery costs).
Early Entry tickets cost £78.19 (£69.50 + £8.69 in fees, excluding deliver costs).
VIP tickets cost £151.31 (that’s £134.50 for tickets + £16.81 in fees, excluding delivery costs).
The party is not only an opportunity for fans but for the artists as well. The singers and bands can perform their Eurovision song in front of a live audience — sometimes for the first time ever. This will help both the artists and the delegations to give them a feedback on what works well and what doesn’t.
Bookies are also paying attention and use the concert to assess how to rate entries in the odds table.
Besides the live performances, artists also have the chance to give dozens of interviews to the press. They can clarify the messages behind their songs and introduce themselves in more detail. It can really help set the tone – and their PR strategy – for the months that follow.
Broadcaster Paddy O’Connell will host the show along with a to-be-revealed co-host. Unfortunately long-time co-host Nicki French can’t make it this year.
