Herning was hoping to host Eurovision 2014 and thought that their bid in the Boxen arena was in with a chance following the news that Parken Stadium removed itself from the race to host Eurovision 2014. Not anymore!
Orchestra Conducting giant – Andre Rieu – has just announced on his website that he is playing a concert in “Jyske Bank Boxen, Herning” on May 15th with his 60 piece orchestra. Now that is Semi Final night at Eurovision 2014 – so Herning will be Waltzing to Rieu and not Eurovision.
The ticket provider “Billetnet” is now saying that “Tickets Nolonger On Sale”. This could mean the following:
:: That DR has asked the promoter to remove the details of the concert until they make a full announcement on Eurovision 2014
:: That Boxen have now declared that they are nolonger available to Mr Andre Rieu
::Mr Rieu got his dates and venue wrong on his website
According to an article written on the Danish website BT.DK , Herning/Boxen did admit that they had forgotten that the Rieu concert was scheduled for May 15th. However subsequently have said that if DR give Herning the honor of hosting Eurovision 2014, that they will provide an alternative venue for the Andre Rieu concert.
However the confusion stems from Mr Andre Rieu’s official website that announced that they were now selling tickets for his concert at Boxen on May 15th and even brought you to the ticket purchasing page.
