Eurovision 2023 tickets to go on sale for Liverpool next week

Tickets for the nine live shows at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest will go on sale next week.

Fans hoping to see one of six previews and three televised shows at the ACC Liverpool arena will need to head to Ticketmaster’s website from noon on Tuesday (7 March).

Tickets range from £30 to £290 for the semi-final shows and from £80 to £380 for the grand final shows, which are being hosted in the north-west city after the UK was chosen to host the competition on behalf of war-torn 2022 winner Ukraine.

All Eurovision fans will need to create a Ticketmaster account before buying tickets.

In January this year, the mayor of Turin, Stefano Lo Russo, and the mayor of Liverpool, Joanne Anderson, met to seal the Eurovision handover with a handshake.

During the ceremony, Lo Russo gave Anderson “a little bit of advice” on hosting.

He said: “Enjoy the event, include everybody, engage the whole city, be proud for such an incredible international stage for you, for Ukraine and for peace”.

Anderson replied to Lo Russo, saying she was “really proud to be able to host Eurovision for Liverpool but especially proud to do it on behalf of Ukraine”.
