However, eagle-eyed watchers have noticed something that may have given an indication as to whether Glasgow has already been confirmed as the host city.

It all centres on the announcement that Olly Murs will tour the UK specifically next year, and that could be a huge sign about the venue for Eurovision.

Tickets will go on sale on Friday, October 14, at 9am, available from Ticketmaster.

How does Olly Murs tour date give us an indication of the Eurovision venue?

Eurovision will be held in May, 2023, and though a date has yet to be confirmed, it is understood that the host venue will need to be clear for upto six weeks before the event in order to allow the stage to be constructed.

The Olly Murs concert would seem to indicate that the 11,000-capacity dockside M&S Bank Arena, which is also the venue Liverpool is hoping to host Eurovision, will not be free to allow the stage to be constructed in time.

This could mean that Glasgow has already been selected as the winner to host Eurovision 2023 at the OVO Hydro arena.
