Collapse in Ticketmaster: the platform falls before the massive purchase of tickets for Eurovision

Tickets to watch the Eurovision Song Contest live in the English city of Liverpool went on sale this Tuesday, and the participation at the time of purchase was such that Ticketmaster crashed for a few minutes thatfor many users, were eternal.

Internauts They denounced failures in the platform, that prevented them from accessing the purchase of passes for the semifinals and the final of the musical contest, which will be held next May.

Festival fans began reporting bugs on the website from 11:00 a.m., and around 12:30 p.m. there were no more tickets left for the Grand Finale.

“Ticketmaster collapsing a minute before Eurovision tickets go on sale omg” or “it seems I’m not the only one facing an internal server error 500 when searching for Eurovision tickets. Good luck to all” are some of the comments that users posted on Twitter.

Ticket prices ranged from 90 pounds (101 euros) until 290 (327 euros) for the live semifinals on May 9 and 11; and between 160 and 380 pounds (between 180 and 428 euros) to see the final on the 13th of that month.

More than 6,000 people will attend each of the shows to be held at the M&S Bank Arena in Liverpool, a space with a capacity for up to 11,000 spectators.

Last month it was announced that 3,000 of those tickets will be reserved for Ukrainians who live in the United Kingdom under one of the Government’s visa programmes.

It should be remembered that Ukraine was the country that won the last edition of Eurovision, but the festival cannot be held there because of the Russian invasion and the war.
