You've left it too late! Die hard fans would have been there for the 2 semi-finals as well. Even Graham Norton left earlier than usual this year and left his chat show in the hands of Jack Whitehall.

Have fun though!

I lost interest in Madonna after sitting in the first concert her tickets broke the 100 mark and thought it wasn't worth it. I think I paid 140 or similar, outside the gold circle seats, so not even the "best seats" for that price. I didn't feel like a fan anymore but a commodity to be exploited.

When I said Graham has gone, I meant he's gone early to Tel Aviv hence why Jack Whitehall hosted his show. He wasn't too bad for a beginner but the guests kind of led him a little at times and the Red Chair was a bit of fix but hey ho.

A week would be a real holiday and fun!

Oh dear. How much time do you have from updated landing time to the start of the show? If it's 9am here now, therefore 11am in Tel Aviv. Add a roughly 5 hour flight time, therefore arriving at 4pm, but I'm guessing they will start broadcasting at 10pm local time for it to be 8pm UK time so you should be fine if a bit rushed (not knowing what Tel Aviv is like to land in customs wise and distance to hotel and where the show is being broadcast from).

Relax and good luck!

Someone obviously doesn't want to miss their annual dose of glamour and glitz!

Though if that is the case, perhaps they should have booked an earlier flight since things can and do go wrong.

Btw, I don't see how issues with a cargo door are the fault of the CSM. And since quite a few air disasters over the years have been caused by faulty cargo doors, I'm sure getting them sorted should be top priority, not landing in time to see Madonna.

Was it because he thought he would miss Eurovision? Or just didn't like being delayed?

Delayed ; only allowed himself a short time in Tel Aviv (Business I guess)

you are lucky this didnt cause a further delay, having to wait for him to be offloaded if the crew were not happy for him to travel

Last year, here I am posing just like the Queen and proudly wearing the Aussie flag, on my way to the grand final of Eurovison 2018 in Lisbon, flying TAP Portugal. Was gutted that Australia was runner-up in 2017, that Dami Im song, Sound of Silence, throughly deserved to win. One of my absolute all time Eurovison favourites. Still supporting Australia this year!
