If tickets for Eurovision feature on your 2019 bucket list, you’ll need a stroke of luck and very deep pockets. Although the official ticketing agency has yet to start selling for the Tel Aviv shows in the middle of May, yesterday the Israeli press revealed planned prices.
Yedioth Aharonot reports that ticket prices for the final on May 18 will range from £245 (NIS 1,150) for seats furthest from the stage, to £288 (NIS 1,350) for a place in the the first few rows.
If you’re happy to stand for over four hours – in the so-called ‘Golden Ring’ – you’ll pay a little over £320. To really treat yourself, splash out £430 and sit near the artists in the adjoining Green Room. On the plus side, the ticket price includes food and drink. Downside: you’ll not be in the main hall.
Tickets for the two semifinals, on May 14 and 16, will be cheaper ranging from £160 to £215. You could ‘save money’ by opting for the rehearsals. A ticket for the semi-finals will cost at most £75, and for the final up to £170.
On sale soon
An on-sale date is expected to be announced shortly with the first wave of sales predicted to kick off later next week through the official ticketing partner Leaan. If you’re not put off by the price, you need to be fast. The hall is configured for an audience of around 7300, with 4300 tickets on general sale for each show. 500 tickets for the final general rehearsal go free to members of the Israel Defense Force.
Of course … you could stay home, spend the money on pizza and let OnEurope* do all the hard work for you! We’ll be there from when rehearsals start until the big night itself. You can expect reports and pictures, video and reviews. And not only from the stage – we’re big on parties too.
