Coldplay in Cardiff
Written by Jamie on 11th July 2017
Coldplay have chosen Cardiff as the only location in the UK to play two concerts as part of their European Head Full of Dreams Tour.
Both gigs take place at the Principality Stadium on July 11th and 12th.
Like with any stadium event, there will be full city centre road closure for both events – as 60 000+ people are expected for each concert. (This will be in place from 6pm until crowds disperse afterwards)
The gates will open at 5.30pm, with the support act starting at 7pm – Coldplay is then expected on stage at 8.30pm.
Principality Stadium has issued new policies on bringing bags into the stadium, as well as information on prohibited items and body searches.
Only small bags, no larger than 35cm x 40cm x 19cm will be allowed into the stadium.
Those travelling by car are being strongly advised to use the Event Park & Ride Facility at Cardiff City Stadium in Leckwith.
Those travelling by train are being strongly advised to travel into Cardiff in good time, as the train network is also expected to be very busy.
A queuing system will be in operation at Cardiff Central Station
