Eurovision fans furious as only £35,000 tickets for grand final are left

Eurovision fans furious as only £35,000 tickets for grand final are left

Think I'll just stay in and watch it on the telly

Tickets for the Eurovision final have just gone on sale, and it's been absolute carnage.

Thousands of fans desperately logged on this morning to bag their seat at the iconic event, but many have been left bitterly disappointed.

Unsurprisingly, tickets went in a matter of seconds, such was the rush for a spot on 13 May.

And some complained that even when they finally got through to pick a seat for the grand final, the only ones left were package tickets, with prices ranging from £35,000 to £45,000.

I mean, no matter how much you love Eurovision, it's not worth taking out another mortgage to pay for a ticket.

Others, however, didn't even get this far, with the site crashing and booting them out of the queue.

Sharing their utter disbelief, one forlorn fan wrote: "The only tickets left for #Eurovision are the bargain suite packages that are only between £35,000 and £45,000."


Another unhappy chappy quipped: "Big thanks to the monkeys at TicketMaster for helping me get Eurovision tickets."

"Thought I’d be cheeky and try for a Eurovision final ticket as well. yeah, no chance," put a third.

While someone else added: "Think it’s going to nil point pour moi on the Eurovision tickets front.

"Another day, another heartbreak #eurovision."

If you just fancy going to one of the run of shows, though, prices are much more reasonable, with some left for just £60.

This comes after it was revealed hotels in Liverpool had ramped up the prices for rooms over the weekend of the event.

Obviously, it is normal for hotels to raise their prices around big events, but the degree we are seeing with Eurovision is in uncharted waters.

One hotel, for example, typically has rooms at around £55 per night and weekend stays sometimes come up to £200.

But on May 13, a 'superior double room' would set you back £739.

Though that is a lot cheaper than some of the other alternatives.

Speaking to LADbible, Sebastien Texier, general manager at Hopper, said that he saw a huge price increase across the board after tickets went on sale.

"Eurovision coming to the UK is a once in a generation opportunity and eager Brits and die-hard fans across the world not only want a front row seat to the Liverpudlian party, but a place to stay in the northern hotspot," he said.

"Demand for hotels in and around Liverpool has reached frenzy levels with our data showing prices at over £5,000 for just a single night over Eurovision weekend."

Yeah, think I'll just stay in and watch it on telly instead.
