We appreciate there may be a large number of patrons who have either never been to Suncorp Stadium or have only attended sporting events. Due to the different nature of concerts and sporting events, we have provided some specific and important information to ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable time at the concert.
Below are the most Frequently Asked Questions. If you still have queries, please let us know either on Facebook, Twitter or via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
GETTING TO AND FROM THE STADIUM
Your concert ticket will give you free public transport on all Queensland Rail City Network Services and Brisbane Transport Bus Services, to and from the stadium. Special services will run before and after the concert along the entire Queensland Rail City Network and special bus services will operate for one hour after the concert for Brisbane City, Carindale, Eight Mile Plains, Chermside and The Gap. Due to the parking restrictions for 1.5km around the stadium during the event, we highly recommend people use the public transport system to avoid traffic delays around the venue.
SPECIAL BUS SERVICES WILL RUN AT REGULAR INTERVALS FROM 5:30PM TO 7:30PM TO THE STADIUM. PLEASE NOTE TAYLOR SWIFT WILL BE ON STAGE AT APPROXIMATELY 8:30PM HOWEVER WE EXPECT A MAJORITY OF PATRONS WILL BE ARRIVING IN THAT TWO HOUR PERIOD. PATRONS CAN CATCH REGULAR SERVICES TO THE CITY OUTSIDE OF THESE TIMES.

There are major parking restrictions enforced around Suncorp Stadium on event days. Many of the streets near the stadium are tow away zones or have parking restrictions enforced at all times. Road closures in the immediate vicinity of the stadium means that there can be traffic delays. The public transport system is the most efficient way to get to and from the stadium.
15 minute parking restrictions are in effect for 1.5km around the stadium. Anyone parking their vehicles for longer than this time may be fined or towed away.
Details of the parking restrictions around the stadium can be found by CLICKING HERE.
MY CHILDREN ARE GOING TO THE CONCERT. WHERE CAN I PULL OVER TO DROP THEM OFF AND COLLECT THEM FOLLOWING THE CONCERT?
Firstly, please note that it is a Term of Entry to Suncorp Stadium that children under the age of 12 must be under the direct supervision of an adult.
Due to the nature of the traffic management plan, there are no locations around the stadium for drivers to wait for patrons leaving the stadium after the concert. If parents or guardians wish to accompany minors to and from the event, we recommend they catch public transport with them and arrange for a meeting point at the conclusion of the concert. There are many cafes and restaurants near the stadium for parents to wait for anyone at the concert.
Due to the number of road closures and police-controlled access points around the stadium, vehicle movements can be difficult and time consuming, particularly at the end of the concert when everyone is leaving the stadium.
FAQ – PATRONS WITH MOBILITY ISSUES
The stadium has limited parking available on the streets nearby for patrons who hold a blue parking permit or Australian Disabilities Parking Permit. BOOKINGS ARE ESSENTIAL.
If you are a holder of one of these permits, please contact Suncorp Stadium reception on (07) 3331 5000 to register for parking. You will be required to provide contact details, permit number and vehicle registration. You will then be issued with a booking reference which you may need to provide to staff to gain access.
I AM LOCATED ON THE FIELD SEATING HOWEVER I CANNOT UTILISE ALOT OF STAIRS. IS THERE ANY OTHER WAY TO GET TO THE FIELD?
Access to the field is generally via the main stairways in the lower bowl. If you have difficulties walking or have problems with stairs, please contact Suncorp Stadium reception on (07) 3331 5000 during business hours or email email@example.com to discuss the options.
I HAVE TICKETS FOR THE EVENT BUT REQUIRE THE USE OF A WHEELCHAIR OR REQUIRE ASSISTANCE WITH MY SEATING. CAN I STILL SIT IN MY TICKETED SEAT IF I HAVE NOT PURCHASED SPECIFIC SEATS FOR THIS PURPOSE?
Sometimes patrons who have purchased tickets well in advance of Events find that their circumstances have changed and they are unable to sit in general seating. This may be patrons who have simply broken their leg, knee surgery or who may now require the use of a wheelchair.
The Stadium has two types of seating for patrons with disabilities. We have specific Enhanced-Amenities seats which are available for patrons who may have difficulties walking or utilising stairs. These seats are located at the tops of aisles and on the edges of aisles. In addition to these seats, we have wheelchair platforms located throughout the Stadium which have spaces specifically assigned for wheelchairs as well as an additional seat for a person to sit with them.
Both of these are available in all pricing categories around the Stadium. If you require additional assistance, please contact Suncorp Stadium on (07) 3331 5000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Patrons are requested to enter through the gate indicated on their tickets to ensure an even flow in the Stadium from all areas. Patrons who are seated in Sections A & B on the field are required to enter through Gates D and E on the Northern end of the Stadium. This will ensure easy access onto the field.
Your ticket will list the aisle which you will need to go to for field access. For the comfort and safe movement of patrons, field access has been broken down by seating section to ensure a smooth flow onto the field. Only patrons with tickets for field sections will be permitted access onto the field area. All tickets will be checked prior to entry to the field.
Please see staff for directions to the correct aisle.
There will be food, drink and toilet facilities available to patrons on the field area. These will be located in the car park area of the Stadium adjacent to the field. Signage will be clearly visible to direct patrons to these facilities or ask any staff member for directions. First Aid facilities will also be available on the field level for patrons.
It is recommended that patrons utilise the facilities which have been made available specifically for field patrons to avoid congestions in aisles. If you need to return to the main concourse area after you have entered the field, you will only be permitted to do so via specific aisles which will be marked or speak to any staff members for directions. At the end of the concert, all aisles in front of the stage will be available for patrons to use to exit the field. You must exit the Stadium via the normal exit gates which are located on the main public concourse.
Whilst the Stadium has fully reserved seating, patrons will be permitted to stand in front of their seats during the show. Patrons may not stand in aisle ways or block access paths at any time.
All gifts must be presented to security staff upon entry to the Stadium. These should be unwrapped gifts as anything wrapped will need to be opened prior to entry.
Staff at the gates will collect all gifts for the band members and will deliver them to the Production Office who will then deliver to the band. Patrons will not be permitted to throw their gifts onto the stage.
Patrons are not permitted to bring commercially packaged items. Homemade food or patrons with specific dietary requirements will be permitted to bring items into the Stadium provided they are not contained within prohibited containers (such as glass or cans).

We want everyone to come to the stadium and enjoy their experience and you are more than welcome to dress up. We just ask that all faces remain uncovered so that we can clearly identify everyone if required. Please also be conscious of other patrons by ensuring your costume doesn’t impede on anyone else’s seat or view of the concert.
It is a Term of Entry to Suncorp Stadium that children under the age of 12 must be under the direct supervision of an adult. Any unaccompanied children under the age of 12 may be referred to police for their own safety.
Only ticketed patrons are permitted to enter the venue. Once a ticket is scanned at the gate, it will no longer allow access. We recommend choosing a location to meet them following the concert.
In order to provide additional comfort to parents who may be attending with younger children, wristbands will be available from staff at the information counter inside the gate for patrons to obtain a free wristband for their child/children. Parents are welcome to write contact details on the back of the wristband.
If a child is separated from their guardian, our staff will know to look for these wristbands to contact someone immediately so that we can reunite child/guardian as quickly as possible.
