When does she play?

Pink takes to the Aviva Stadium as part of her Summer Carnival on June 20th and June 21st.

Are tickets still available?

Unfortunately tickets for both concerts are sold out, but if you are lucky you may nab one on resale on Buy tickets from accredited sources only.

Doors open at 5pm, with the show expected to start at 6pm.

Who is the support act?

How do I get there and home again?

Organisers have said fans should allow for extra travel time to and from the venue. As traffic and parking delays are inevitable, you are encouraged to walk, cycle, use public transport and private coach services.

By Luas: The stadium is a fair walk from the nearest Luas stop. It’s about a 30- 40-minute walk from Ranelagh, Charlemont, Harcourt, St Stephen’s Green, Dawson and Trinity on the Green Line.

By train: Lansdowne Road Dart station is less than a minute’s walk from the southern end of the stadium. There will be large crowds entering and exiting the stadium at the same time, so plan accordingly. Extra dart services will be running.

Irish Rail has advised those travelling to and from these events to plan carefully. Customers are urged to allow extra time for your journey, as high volumes of passengers will probably cause delays. People not attending these events have been asked to avoid these routes during event times. As part of a Garda event plan for big events at the Aviva Stadium, Grand Canal Dock Station will be closed at the end of the concerts.

By bus: The Dublin Bus routes that will be operating a full service nearest to the Aviva Stadium are the 4, 7, 7a, 39a, 46a, 145 and 155.

By car: There is no bike or car parking at the stadium on concert days for security reasons. There are, however, commercial car parks around the city, such as Claremont Parking or Q-Park, but spaces are limited. If you’re travelling from outside the county and have a friend with a space in their driveway within the M50, that could be a good shout.

Suggested locations for taxi drop off are the junction off Pembroke Road/Northumberland Road or the junction of Tritonville Road and Herbert Road depending on which colour road your ticket is for.
