Following the concert we would ask that everyone follow the direction of Gardaí and stewards. Patrons are strongly advised to use the tunnel and South Ring Road to travel home. Traffic will be restricted going through the city.

The attendance is expected to be in the region of 40,000 plus so we would ask for everyone to have patience when leaving the stadium and its environs.

Stay safe and enjoy the concert!
