Eurovision in Concert's René Romkes said:
The team has been working really hard since October last year for this edition. We're delighted that so many delegations accepted our invitation again to take part in the event. We never sold out as fast as this year's edition which is something to be grateful for as well! We will do everything in our possibility to make sure it's going to be an amazing weekend again for both artists and fans! We're ready for it: let's all Come Together in Amsterdam!
