About the venue and tickets
The chosen venue for the special collaboration is the Fléda Club. Ordinarily it is known for its rich cultural history during the jazz era of the early 20th Century. Since then it has played host to a wide variety of genres across the music spectrum and is seen as the number one club for those seeking the nightlife in Brno. After hours it becomes a hotspot for techno and dance beats. Although for Alexander and Elina it will be a more relaxed evening, taking place at 8pm. Tickets can be purchased on Ticketmaster here, with a starting price of 20 euros. Furthermore, tickets from selected partner outlets in the Czech Republic can be bought here.
Alexander and Elina in the Eurovision Song Contest
During this years contest in Lisbon, Estonian opera sensation Elina Nechayeva wowed the audience with her stunning vocals and equally stunning projection dress. As a result Estonia qualified for the final for the first time since 2015 and returned to the top 10 with ‘La Forza’ achieving 8th place. However, for Norway’s Alexander Rybak, this was his second outing on the Eurovision stage. Back in 2009 he fiddled his way to victory in Moscow with the folk ditty ‘Fairytale’. At the time he achieved the highest ever score with 387 points. Once again in the 2018 contest Alexander delivered another jolly folk anthem with his famed violin. Although he didn’t quite manage the same result. Despite winning the second semi-final, ‘That’s How You Write A Song’ could only manage 15th in the final.
