There’s a Eurovision hits concert coming to the Philharmonic

From folk to power ballads, heavy metal to Europop, Eurovision has it all, and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra is getting set to embrace the musical madness when the much-loved Song Contest comes to Liverpool in May.

Ahead of the competition, on Friday 12 May 2023, the Orchestra will perform iconic Eurovision songs at its ‘Douze Points!’ concert.

The Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Richard Balcombe and joined by incredible vocalists, will take you on a trip around the continent, performing Eurovision favourites such as ‘Waterloo’, ‘Boom Bang a Bang’, ‘Rise Like A Phoenix’, ‘Stefania’ and many more.

Liverpool Philharmonic Hall

Liverpool was named hosts of Eurovision 2023 by Graham Norton after being chosen from an initial 20 bidding cities.

The city has been celebrating since the news came in and the work has already started to put Liverpool centre stage, putting on one of the most famous music competitions and, most importantly of all, paying homage to this year’s winners, Ukraine.

Liverpool has until May 13 to prepare for the grand final, which will be held at the 11,000-capacity M&S Bank Arena on Liverpool’s waterfront.

The concert will be hosted by the wonderful broadcaster Owain Wyn Evans, the host of Radio 2’s Early Breakfast show in 2023, who raised more than £3 million for BBC Children in Need with a 24-hour drumathon.

A glass of bubbly is included with every ticket to kick off the night. For more details, please visit www.liverpoolphil.com
