Important event information

With more than 60,000 fans expected to attend the Eminem concert at ANZ Stadium on Friday evening traffic will be heavy on roads approaching Olympic Park.

Fans are encouraged to catch public transport as travel is included in your concert ticket and plenty of express trains and major event buses will run.

Anyone that has to drive is strongly advised to plan to arrive early, carpool where possible and pre-book parking as car parks will be in very high demand.

Valid pre-purchased tickets to the Eminem concert includes travel to and from ANZ Stadium on the following public transport services:

  • Train services (bounded by Bomaderry, Goulburn, Bathurst, Scone and Dungog stations)
  • Sydney Olympic Park Major Event buses
  • Regular bus services
  • Sydney Ferries services

Remember to keep your event ticket safe for your return journey or you'll need to use your Opal card, as you must have a valid ticket when travelling on public transport. Your ticket is valid on public transport until 04:00 the following day.

Note: an additional station access fee applies for travel to or from Domestic and International Airport stations. Your event ticket does not include the access fee, so if you're travelling from these stations you'll need to pay the train station access fee.
