ITALY – What capacity will the Pala Alpitour have next May, on the occasion of Eurovision 2022? The wait for tickets and the delays in the announcement by Rai (now it is a matter of days), are linked, as can be easily understood, to the current pandemic situation.
With the relaxation of the restrictions foreseen from March, the picture is finally becoming clearer also on the front of major events (therefore Eurovision 2022 included).
However, one thing must be underlined: this is a fact that could change again, should a new relaxation of the restrictions appear.
Naturally, the aim is to reach 100% of the capacity, but in the meantime, it will be possible to start the sale of at least part or all of the tickets that will fall within the 65% linked to the current situation.
RAI Producer, Guido Rossi, says
Eurovision is not just the final, it is much more, it will fill Turin with many events and activities in two weeks and I am convinced that the element that led Turin to win is also linked to the city’s ability to make itself available.
Nine days open to the public for rehearsals (referring to the open dress rehearsal for the shows)*, the inauguration on May 8 in Venaria with the “turquoise carpet” on which the 41 competing artists will parade and the Eurovillage which will be built in a central area of the city and which will also project the competition.
We will have three extraordinary presenters, three international stars, Alessandro Cattelan, Laura Pausini and Mika, an important element for the majesty of the event. It will be two weeks that will make its importance felt in the city and we hope that in May there will be full capacity in the halls. The Municipality and Rai want to make this experience possible for as many citizens as possible.
*With regard to the “nine days of rehearsal”, it must actually be said that Rossi probably actually referred to the nine shows for which tickets are normally sold: the dress rehearsal 2 of the semifinals and final (Monday, Wednesday and Friday evening), the dress rehearsal 3 of the semifinals and final (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday afternoon) and the TV shows of the semifinals and final (Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday evening).
