The London Eurovision Party 2016 is taking place tonight at the Cafe de Paris at 7:00pm UK time! As previously mentioned this week, Nicky attended with other Eurovision participants and special guests. Make sure to keep checking back for all the latest news, pictures and videos… I will be updating constantly 😉
Here are pictures of Nicky rehearsing, doing press with various sites and performing! Click on one to view all of them:
Want to see Nicky perform at the Eurovision 2nd Semi-Finals? Well, now’s your chance! Eurovision is releasing a bunch of remaining tickets on sale today. It all starts at 10am CET (that’s 9am in Ireland/U.K.), and you have to be fast because they sell out very quickly! Here’s what you need to know:
At 9.30am, 30 minutes prior to the onsale, Eurovision will open the Waiting Room for all nine shows. Select the one you wish to get tickets for. – NOTE: you are not guaranteed tickets even if you get a place in the Waiting Room.
While in the Waiting Room, you can fill out your credit card details in case you don’t have those saved within your AXS account. If you get the chance to buy tickets, you will be prompted to log in after selecting tickets.
DO NOT refresh the event page, it updates automatically.
At 10am onwards, customers will gradually be let in to start the purchase process.
If you get through to select tickets, make your selection and go to the next step. Please be aware if you change your mind about the selection and release your tickets, you will be placed last in line.
DJ, presenter – and charming MC last night – also confirms release is on the horizon.
At one point, HP couldn’t help but notice him chatting with Gavin James, just 24 hours before he supports Ed Sheeran at Croke Park. Was the Westlife man doling out a bit of advice?
“It didn’t come up, actually,” Nicky laughed. “I don’t think I could describe it anyway. The first couple of minutes when you go on stage are insane. You can’t hear anything. You can’t even breathe, never mind sing. Your mouth dries up. It’s just a wall of noise, a cauldron.”
Westlife capped their career with a pair of dates at HQ – unsurprisingly, they’re stand-out memories in Byrne’s mind.
“It was an amazing way to finish. It was weird though; you knew you were going to wake up the following morning unemployed! You were never going to do that again, but what memories.”
And a new chapter of his musical career is just around the corner too; Byrne confirmed that a solo album is progressing very nicely indeed.
“I’ve been co-writing with Wayne Hector,” he reports. “He wrote ‘Flying Without Wings’, and he’s worked with Nicki Minaj and One Direction too. I’ve literally squeezed it in after radio on the days that I could. I obviously had the TV show too; this explains why it took so long, if I’m honest!”
But there’s no fear of Byrne jacking in his 2fm gig; “I couldn’t,” he smiled. “I just love it too much.”
Kian, Shane, Mark and Nicky are excited to announce that they will be heading back on the road in 2012!
The tour entitled ‘The Greatest Hits Tour’ will see the boys perform their 14 number one singles and more, in one spectacular live show!
