Top tips for 1D fans with two weeks to go
22nd May 2015, 12:03 pm By Principality Stadium
One Direction fans are being reminded to plan ahead for the ‘On the Road Again’ tour at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium in two weeks.
The world’s biggest boy band will kick off the UK leg of their Tour with two massive stadium gigs on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 June.
The Tour is set to be one of the biggest-ever pop gatherings at Cardiff’s multi-event venue, with only limited ticket availability remaining for Friday night after the Saturday show sold out in 24 hours.
The extra special stadium dates give fans the first chance to catch 1D on British soil, months before the UK tour goes on the road in September. Fans will also get to see ‘special guests’ pop punk supergroup McBusted at the two Cardiff gigs.
Having previously welcomed some of the world’s biggest pop acts in Take That and Robbie Williams for consecutive shows, Stadium Manager Mark Williams and his team are gearing up for another two epic stadium events. As the countdown continues, the stadium boss has issued a further reminder to concert-goers as they set about their own preparations to welcome 1D to Wales’ capital city.
“The anticipation ahead of the One Direction concerts in Cardiff has been huge since tickets for the first Millennium Stadium gig went on sale and sold out in just 24 hours. With just two weeks to go, we’re in to the final planning stages at the venue and likewise the One Direction fans will be making their final preparations for the event.
“Fans are reminded to check the advice sent out with their tickets and made available online at millenniumstadium.com in relation to key information such as charging mobile phones, public transport, dedicated meeting points and prohibited items.
“This information is also vitally important for any parents driving to the city, chaperoning children to the event and arranging to meet up at the end of the show, which will be after 10.15pm.
“I urge all fans to plan travel to and from the venue in advance and to make use of the stadium and city-center maps available online which include road closures and diversion routes as well as suggested meeting points for those on foot or travelling by car.”
He added: “As with all Millennium Stadium events, preparation and planning in advance of the gig will help to make the occasion run smoothly and avoid unnecessary difficulty before, during or after the concert.”
