Bruce Springsteen will be appearing in concert at the Etihad Stadium on Friday, 22 June 2012.
The legendary American rocker, famed for his epic live shows will be backed by his long-term collaborators the almighty E Street Band.
If you are attending the concert, we have some useful transport and parking information for you.
Official, on-site car parking is available to purchase on the day and fans will be directed to CP1 & CP2 which is accessible via gate 2 on Alan Turing Way. Costs are £10 for cars, £15 for Minibuses and £30 for coaches. Parking is available from 9am.
There are a number of satellite car parks around the stadium with prices displayed upon entry. The Club does not endorse these car parks. If using these car parks, please take note of your surroundings in order to easily find the car park when you return in the dark. Please allow plenty of time to get to the stadium.
A Residents Parking Scheme is in place in the streets around the stadium and is strictly enforced. If you park in these areas you will be fined and your vehicle may be clamped or removed. Please respect the needs of the local residents. Parking at ASDA, adjacent to the stadium, is reserved for store customers only. Penalties will be imposed for misuse of this car park.
Getting to and from the stadium
Please note that a road closure operates immediately after the event to allow pedestrians to leave safely. This will affect local car parks and will cause delays.
Travelling by car
Congestion is expected to be heaviest for those travelling South along the A5103 and West towards the M602. It is recommended to avoid these routes where possible. Traffic is much lighter heading North and East from the Etihad Stadium. It is advised to take these routes to the M60 if at all possible for a quicker journey home.
Travelling on foot and by bus
There is a safe, well lit and signposted walking route available from Manchester Piccadilly Station to the stadium. Signage will direct you along the route. Please follow the ‘City Link’ signs.
The same route will be operational at the end of the event and stewards will be on hand to direct you. It is our recommendation to use the safe walking route at the end of the event and to pick up transport for your onward journey from the city centre.
Please see the route map for more details.
We will have up to 40 buses lined up on Ashton New Road to transport concert goers into the city centre. This will transport approximately 7000 people and is on a first come first serve basis.
Due to the road closures, it will not be possible to pick-up from the stadium at the end of the event. We have a dedicated pick-up point located on our site which is in the corner of Alan Turing Road and Ashton Old Road.
This is a short walk from the stadium but remains out of the area affected by road closure. Signage is in place at the venue to direct you.
