It’s the world-renowned theatre located at the heart of London. Now, winner of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, Conchita Wurst, is set to perform at the grand venue next month!

The London Palladium has played host to a number of big productions over the years; from the United Kingdom’s 2009 composer, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Wizard of Oz to the majority of the Royal Variety Performance shows, the venue has seen a plethora of grand events over the years.

Now, Eurovision’s 2014 winner Conchita Wurst is set to perform at one of the most famous theatres in the United Kingdom, expected to bring excitement, drama and glamour to the British capital.

Conchita at the London Palladium

In connection with BBC Radio 2’s Friday Night Is Music Night concert, Conchita is set to perform at the venue accompanied by a sixty-piece orchestra: the BBC Concert Orchestra.

Bringing her spectacular orchestral performance to the UK for the first time, the Austrian star will present and perform a number of her favourite diva-songs, most of which she describes as a source of inspiration for her musical style today.

Conchita! at the London Palladium will take place on the 25 February at 19:30 local time, with ticket prices varying from £23.50 to £67.50.

You can purchase your tickets via the official London Palladium website.

Conchita and Eurovision

Back in 2013, Conchita was confirmed as the Austrian representative for the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest.

Internally selected by the Austrian national broadcaster, ORF, the singer competed at the Copenhagen-hosted competition with her entry Rise like a phoenix.

Becoming one of the most talked-about artists of the competition, Conchita successfully advanced from the semi-final stage of the competition, qualifying to the final of the competition as one of the betting odd favourites.

Receiving 290 points at the Eurovision 2014 final, Conchita won the competition by a landslide, becoming one of the most memorable Eurovision winners in recent years.
