The Eagles concert: Transport and road closure information

Old school rockers The Eagles are set to prove they've still got what it takes, playing at the Cape Town Stadium on Wednesday 4 April 2012.

It looks like tickets are still available if you're keen to hear their iconic "Hotel California" played live, but if you're already going or live in the Green Point area, here is some important transport information.

The concert starts at 8pm, and there is no supporting act. The stadium gates open at 6pm.

The Fan Walk will not be in place, although part of Somerset Road will be closed after the concert.

The organisers and local traffic officials are urging concertgoers to use public transport, in order to try prevent the expected traffic congestion. There were massive traffic jams coming into town and a dearth of parking for the Neil Diamond concert last year, which probably attracted a similar crowd.

No parking at or near the stadium will be available, but there is paid parking at the V&A Waterfront, and there will be parking in the CBD. There will be a free MyCiTi shuttle to and from the Civic Centre MyCiTi bus station for ticketholders, from 5pm to 11.30pm. A post-event MyCiTi bus service will be provided to Table View to ticketholders.

There is no shuttle service to UCT or Hout Bay, and there are no Park and Ride facilities for this event.

Train services will run as normal, but there will be no late trains after the event. For more info, phone the 24/7 Transport Information Centre on 0800 656463 or visit www.capemetrorail.co.za.

    I WILL NOT BE SUPPORTING A CONCERT OR ANY EVENT AT THE CAPE TOWN STADUIM  AGAIN. I COME FROM THE NORTHERN SUBURBS AND HAVE AN ISSUE WITH METRO RAIL IF THEY TELL ME THE LAST TRAIN FOR THE NORTHERN SUBURBS LEAVES AT 6.15 PM.THE CITY WANTS US TO USE PUBLIC TRANSPORT BUT THE ROCKET SCIENTIST WHO ARRANGES TRAIN TIMES DOES NOT USE THE VERY TRANSPORT HE CONTROLS, BECAUSE IF HE DID HE WOULD UNDERSTAND THAT SOME PEOPLE DO STAY OUT LATER THAN 6.15 PM
