We all know that Eurovision can be an expensive affair. However, if you happen to be in Israel and not been lucky enough to get tickets. Worry not, as it has been announced that there will be a free concert given to Eurovision fans.
According to the Jerusalem Post three former winners, Loreen, Anne-Marie David and Carola will all be performing in Tel Aviv. The best news is that this will be free for fans to watch. During the second semi final all three artists will perform at the Tel Aviv boardwalk. Check out Andy interviewing Anne Marie David in 2017.
It has been announced that on the evening of the second semi final, the show will include six dancers, and a team of Israeli drag queens. The evening will be a gay affair. The Jerusalem post have also stated that the evening will be co-hosted by Eurovision expert Alon Amir and Orna Datz. The show will begin at 8pm local Israeli time, and will then be followed up by the live semi final 2.
Between the three artists they have made several Eurovision appearances. Anee Marie David won the competition for Luxembourg in 1973 with the song “Tu te reconnaîtras,” and then represented France at the 1979 Eurovision in Jerusalem, coming in third place. Loreen won the Eurovision for Sweden in 2012 with the song “Euphoria”. Whilst, Carola has appeared at the Eurovision no less than three times: 1983, when she came in third; 1991, when she won with “Fångad av en Stormvind”; and 2006, when she finished in fifth place.
