GETTING TO AND FROM THE STADIUM
HOW DO I GET 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 8:10PM 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.

Frontier Touring continue to take security measures at concert events extremely seriously. Appropriate measures at all events are undertaken with the safety of fans as the highest priority. Because of additional security measures, we recommend you allow yourself extra time to arrive at the venue.
CAN I PARK NEAR THE STADIUM?
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 – STADIUM ENTRY
HOW DO I GET INTO THE STADIUM?
Firstly, check your ticket for your gate entry. This will be the closest gate to your seating area for the concert. Signs and maps around the stadium clearly indicate the location of these gate entry points.
When you arrive at the stadium, it is important you look for the signs at the gates based on your seating location. For patrons on the floor, enter under the marquees marked as FIELD. For patrons in grandstand seating, enter under the marquees marked as GRANDSTAND. All patrons will be issued a wristband which form part of the show so it’s important you enter via the correct gates to ensure you are given the correct wristband.
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY SEATS ARE ON THE FLOOR, GRANDSTAND OR CORPORATE AREA?
Patrons on the field will have seating locations commencing with letters A to E followed by a single number to indicate the section on the field (eg A1, B2, C3, D4, E5 etc).
Patrons on the grandstand will have a three digit numerical reference commencing with a 3, 5, 6 or 7 which indicates the nearest Aisle (eg 301, 514, 640, 722 etc).
Tickets for patrons seated in corporate areas will clearly indicate they are in a corporate area, and have the letter ‘E’ or ‘W’ before their three digit suite or box number (for example E432, W514 etc).
FAQ – VIP PACKAGES
I HAVE PURCHASED A VIP PACKAGE FOR THE CONCERT. WHERE DO I GO?
Patrons who have purchased the VIP packages for the show will be sent specific information regarding their entry to the stadium. The entry will be on the northern plaza and staff associated with the VIP Packages will be there to issue them with their packages and escort those patrons into the stadium.
The VIP packages do not include meet-and-greets with Taylor unfortunately!
PATRONS WITH MOBILITY ISSUES
I HAVE A DISABILITY PERMIT. CAN I PARK AT THE STADIUM?
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.
If you are a holder of a Queensland Red parking permit, unfortunately these are not valid for parking at the stadium.
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.
HOW DO I GET ONTO THE FLOOR?
HOW DO I GET ONTO THE FIELD FOR THE CONCERT?
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. Your gate indicated on the ticket is the closest entry to the floor.

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.
CAN I LEAVE THE FIELD AREA ONCE I AM THERE?
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.

WHAT CAN I BRING WITH ME?
I WANT TO BRING GIFTS FOR THE ARTISTS. HOW CAN I DO THIS?

IN LIGHT OF RECENT DEVELOPMENTS, WHAT SECURITY MEASURES DOES THE STADIUM HAVE IN PLACE FOR THE CONCERT?

YOUNGER PATRONS AT THE CONCERT
HOW OLD MUST MY CHILD BE TO GO TO THE CONCERT WITHOUT A PARENT?
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.
MY CHILD (OR CHILDREN) ARE GOING TO THE CONCERT. IF I DO NOT HAVE A TICKET, CAN I TAKE THEM TO THEIR SEAT AND EXIT THE STADIUM AND WAIT?
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. There will be meeting points clearly marked around the plazas. We suggest utilising these as meeting points due the large number of people around the venue after the event.
YOUNGER CHILDREN ATTENDING THE VENUE
In order to provide additional comfort to parents who may be attending with younger children, a marquee will be located on either end of the stadium 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.
