No money yet

Whether Alf Poier has already apologized to her, Conchita Wurst has to answer with “I don’t know”. Nor does she know whether it will rain the forecast money now. “Nothing has changed on my account”, jokes the first song contest winner for Austria since Udo Jürgens 48 years ago. That’s it again, so the sausage is released again after this lightning strike.

Number one in Russia

So while the sausage was a guest on “Willkommen Österreich”, her winning song “Rise Like A Phoenix” climbed in the very country that

because of the travesty artist’s victory, she wants to create her own music competition and leave the ESC

, at number one: Conchita Wurst achieved a number one hit in the Russian iTunes charts.

Since

a brilliant victory in Copenhagen is Conchita Wurst,

is

Tom Neuwirth

Caught in an inescapable field of tension between excessive love and abysmal hatred. “My life has turned 180 degrees,” says the drag queen in a tailored cocktail dress during her

Appearance at Vienna Ballhausplatz.

And 10,000 fans are eager to listen.

But even the small world from which Tom Neuwirth comes, the rural world of his parents, was brutally shaken up in the days after the triumph. “We didn’t know what we were getting into,” said Siegfried Neuwirth, the father of our new national heroine, in an interview with NEWS.

“At the ‘Big Chance’, when Tom appeared as Conchita for the first time, I didn’t know who it really was. Our neighbors told us in advance that he would perform there, that’s the only reason we’re going set the TV. No kidding – I didn’t recognize him. Only when I heard his voice did I know that this was Thomas.https://123helpme.me/ But no matter what our boy looks like and no matter what he has done, we are always behind him And if he had appeared as Dracula, I wouldn’t have cared either. That would have been something about Conchita, “explains Siegfried Neuwirth.

But now Conchita’s parents can no longer be indifferent. Suddenly trepidation has moved into the cozy tavern, where the regulars drink from their very own special mug with printed portrait photos. And Siegfried Neuwirth rolls deeply gloomy thoughts: “I’m afraid for my son, I’m only now really afraid. Because there are a few crazy people walking around everywhere. Like the man who shot John Lennon because he wanted to be on all the front pages. So you have to be sick once. “

Conchita as the lady of the world and I in a dirndl, with a slightly vulgar make-up, will also win the 2015 Song Contest! We will sing a former hit of the Surmtaler dirndls. Another next year ….

With “no matter how our son walks around, we stick to him”, the dear sausage dad somehow shows that he somehow has his problem with the sausage junior outfit. Papawurst, you can’t help it.

yes, there are strange guys … guys who get so upset about Conchita Wurst that they verbally insult and also threaten him. Conchita Wurst doesn’t hurt anyone just because she lives the way she (he) likes it. One should get excited about murderers, animal abusers, burglars, social parasites, etc. But not about a harmless person.

It is not yet clear when and where the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 will take place in Austria – but many fans and participants seem to be relying on Vienna as the venue: The prices for some hotel categories have almost doubled, such as the Checkfelix travel search engine reported on Tuesday.

For example, a room in a 5-star hotel in Vienna cost an average of around 170 euros per night at the end of June 2014, compared to around 310 euros on the weekend of 15 May 2015 – a price increase of over 80 percent. In the case of 3-star hotels, the difference is 47 percent. At the same time, however, some seem to be betting on other cities. In Innsbruck the average price will rise by around 40 percent, in Graz by around 50 percent across all segments and in Linz by around 55 percent, it is said.

“A safety cushion”

In the APA conversation, Michaela Reitterer, President of the Austrian Hoteliers Association, was relaxed about the current situation: “It’s still too early to speculate.” As long as it is not fixed exactly where the ESC takes place, little is happening on the market: “The 50 percent increase is simply a safety cushion.”

After all, you have to take into account: “Vienna has a particularly low price level in European comparison.” With the current rise in prices for the predicted major event, Vienna is starting at the normal level of most other cities in Europe, which is only fair. The fact that hotel prices rise at major events is an effect everywhere: “Of course we won’t give our rooms away on the weekend.”

Those interested have until June 13th to register as the venue for the

Eurovision Song Contest 2015

to apply. In the meantime, the ORF has put together its competence team under the direction of Edgar Böhm, while many locations in the federal states are scratching the holes – from Unterpremstätten to Oberwart. Only Vorarlberg and Salzburg should be out of the running.

In Vienna they are getting ready for talks with the ORF and, above all, positioning the city hall as a location. “We have set up a central point of contact for the ORF at the City of Vienna Marketing,” explained Media Councilor Christian Oxonitsch (SPÖ) to the APA. Now we are waiting to see how the ORF will proceed. The city hall variant is currently being given “priority” in any case: “We have a finished and fully functional hall that meets all currently known requirements,” said Oxonitsch. The infrastructure with hotels, other halls or a press center can also be made available. Of course, there are also alternatives if special requests or as yet unknown requirements arise. “Then we like to think about other solutions, but are not currently assuming them,” says Oxonitsch.

Linz harbor?

The city of Linz is still examining the requirements profile of the ORF in detail, said Mayor Klaus Luger (SPÖ) on APA request. But it is already clear that existing facilities such as design centers, music theaters or a factory hall on the voestalpine premises are not suitable. “But we haven’t given up yet,” said Luger. He has his sights set on the port of Linz, which is currently being restructured. An existing hall there could possibly be provided with additions. A temporary building like the one built as a venue for Linz European Capital of Culture 2009 and then used as a cold store is also being considered, especially with regard to costs. The city of Wels, however, offers an existing exhibition hall and an exhibition hall that is under construction. Mayor Peter Koits (SPÖ) admits an outsider position, but still sees “realistic chances for a contract”. City marketing is currently preparing documents for an offer. In the Mühlviertel Kernland region, which wants to build a tent city on the border with the Czech Republic for the Song Contest, at least the space for this is available. The Traunseestadt Gmunden is out of the running with its open air plans that do not meet the ORF requirements profile. She does not have the required roofed event location with a capacity of 10,000 people, said Andreas Murray, head of tourism.

Lower Austria: Korneuburg shipyard as an option

Lower Austria is also still interested in hosting the Eurovision Song Contest 2015. The country has a lot of experience in hosting major events. At the moment it is in an analysis phase, it was said on request from Governor Erwin Pröll (ÖVP). The requirements of the ORF would now be checked. According to reports, the Korneuburg shipyard was brought into play as the location. “It is exciting for us that we are named,” said Mayor Christian Gepp (ÖVP) to the APA and confirmed ongoing discussions. The necessary space would be available in the shipyard. The infrastructure would of course have to be created, said Gepp. Another topic is protection against Danube floods.

Tyrol: Olympiaworld possible

According to Mayor Christine Oppitz-Plörer (FI), Innsbruck is currently working intensively on the application for the Song Contest in Tyrol. “With Olympiaworld we have the perfect venue that meets all requirements,” said the mayor. Although there is no task force in Innsbruck, there is a well-coordinated team that is familiar with the organization of large events. “We think we have a very good chance of bringing the Song Contest to Innsbruck,” said Oppitz-Plörer optimistically. The mayor did not want to say how much money the city would contribute. This does not have to be specifically mentioned in the application.

Graz city hall and Schwarzl-See as candidates

The two Styrian applicants, the city of Graz with the city hall and the Schwarzlsee leisure center in Unterpremstätten near Graz, are fully busy preparing for the submission. In response to a request from APA, those responsible for both potential venues stated that they would submit the applications including the specifications by June 13th. “The Schwarzlsee does not have a knockout criterion according to the requirements of the ORF. I also think that we are by far the largest and most perfect location in terms of environment and logistics – from the airport to motorway parking,” said managing director Klaus Leutgeb Werbung in own cause. Also in the front is Messe-Congress-CEO Armin Egger “his” city hall: “We can provide pretty much the best infrastructure around the hall too.” The municipal council of the city of Graz had decided in principle in favor of the application.

Carinthia also wants him

In Carinthia, Klagenfurt with the Wörtherseestadion will apply as a permanent venue. Mayor Christian Scheider (FPÖ) announced this in an APA interview. A “task force” that deals with the criteria set by the ORF and their implementation has already been set up – made up of technicians and “a few people who are very experienced in the event sector”. Scheider believes that the stadium will meet all of the criteria with the open venue. “Our people say anything is possible with the stadium.” Air conditioning too? “No air conditioning, but you won’t need that outdoors.” Scheider does not want to accept objections that it could be too cold. And the fact that ORF wants to have the location exclusively for six weeks will not be a problem – even if a soccer cup final stands in the way. The FPÖ politician sees more of a problem, but: “Everyone will face the situation …”. The mayor of Klagenfurt sees the sticking point in the costs. “The financial framework will decide. Ultimately, it should also bring something economically.” Scheider does not want to give a number for the time being: “That is only possible with a joint effort by the federal government, the state, the city and the ORF.”

Burgenland is also interested

In Burgenland, the move by Governor Hans Niessl (SPÖ) to allow the Song Contest to take place in Oberwart continues. From the favored exhibition center in the city, Managing Director Sylvia Stampf had the APA announce the following: “We have officially applied to host the 2015 Song Contest.
