However, some important changes to services will still be in place due to planned improvement works being undertaken by NetworkRail.  For full details see

“Our key message to fans is still to ask them to plan ahead and make relevant contingency plans regarding travel to and from Cardiff if they are affected by the changes to services,” said Millennium Stadium manager Mark Williams.

“There is a raft of information available on our website which gives full details of road closures and safe and stewarded meeting points and car pick up points around the city.

“These dedicated meeting points and vehicle pick up points are in place to help concert goers re-unite with family and friends after the concert, which is scheduled to finish at 10.20pm each night.

“There are also Park & Ride services available around the City and it is important to note that there is no parking available at the venue itself.

“We would like to remind fans that there will be no facility for overnight camping around the Millennium Stadium grounds and strongly encourage concert goers to make alternative arrangements for overnight stays.

“Overnight queuing is also not permitted and fans should note that the Millennium Stadium turn-styles and access points are not in covered areas and so should dress appropriately.”
