Is there more public transport?

There will be additional bus and subway connections before and after the performance.

Concert-goers with purple, red, or yellow tickets should head to the Stadium of Light subway station. If you have an admission ticket in the colors blue, orange, platinum, green or pink, it is best to go to the St. Peter underground station.

Tube users are advised to allow sufficient time to get to Sunderland before the concert and then use St Peter’s or Stadium of Light tube stations where there are extra staff and queue management.

Sunderland and Park Lane stations are closed from 10pm.

In order to make it easier for passengers to return home, the trains will run later than normal.

Are there road closures?

Roads around the venue will be closed and there will be no pickup and drop-off areas directly in front of the stadium.

Motorists coming from the south should use the A19 exits A1018 and A690 and drop off in the city center or on Dame Dorothy Street, where the Stadium of Light is a short walk away.

The Keir Hardie Way will be closed. Vehicles coming from the north and west are therefore advised to use the park and walk area at Sunderland Enterprise Park via the A1231 Wessington Way.

Where can I park?

There is no on-site parking available and drivers have been advised that residential parking permits apply on the residential streets surrounding the stadium.
