Only 6,000 tickets available across nine Eurovision shows in Liverpool were available when they went on sale today. Within 36 minutes, they were all sold out. Many fans trying to buy tickers encountered error messages much like we saw in The Big Bang Theory with the crowd trying to get into Comic Con.

The Eurovision show is set to present dress rehearsals for the semi-finals, with the grand finale taking place on May 13, 2023. With so many fans trying to book tickets, they saw a message that said “Error 503”. Others reported that they saw a notification that they were suspected of being a bot.

It took 36 minutes for the tickets to be completely sold. What’s worse, most of Liverpool’s accommodation is already booked for the show. You need to also keep in mind that the Premiere League is also happening at the moment, so many of the lodgings are also booked for the football games.

To give you some idea of the demand, many users received a message saying they are about 2000th in the queue. Apparently, the real number was much higher than this.

Let’s talk about the Eurovision event for a bit. The hosts include Julia Sanina (Ukranian singer), Alesha Dixon (TV star), and Hannah Waddingham (actress). Timur Miroshnychenko will step in as the Ukranian commentator.

The UK act will consist of a cast based on an internal-selection process. While TaP Music and the BBC are remaining silent on who will head the show, there are rumors that it will include the likes of Rina Sawayama, Birdy, and Mimi Webb. Eurovision is set to start on May 8 in Liverpool.
