Eurovision had made me quite upset with in the past year. The Swedes of course won the thing last year. Those unfamiliar with the competition, the winner from the previous year hosts the thing. Hence, this year it is in Sweden, where I have many friends. I thought this to be the optimal time to ever witness this European music performance contest thing in person.
They decide to have the city of MALMO host the thing, which has one of the smallest arenas, when it would have made much better sense to have it in Stockholm or Gothenburg. As a result, not as many tickets can be sold. I tried like hell to get on the internet to book the things, but within MINUTES the tickets were sold out! I suspect though many big-wigs had access to a presale prior to them even going on sale the public. Who knows, many most of the tickets had already been used in this fashion.
But all in all, I will not watch it this year, rather catch the post show results and sample some of the different songs performed on the internet.
