Elton John brings his 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road' tour to Cork this Friday, July 1st.
If you're heading along, here's everything you need to know.
CAN I STILL BUY TICKETS?
Yes, at time of writing there are tickets available via Ticketmaster, ranging from €96 plus fees to €181 plus fees. There is both a standing and a seated area available on the pitch.
WHERE IS IT ON?
It's on at the Páirc Uí Chaoimh stadium in Cork, which has a capacity of around 35,000 for a concert.
HOW DO I GET THERE?
Páirc Uí Chaoimh is conveniently located just 5 minutes' drive from Cork city centre, 10 minutes' drive from Cork airport and 5 minutes' drive from both Cork bus and train stations. Commuter services from Midleton and Little Island are handy for those travelling via rail.
If you're walking, it's about 35 minutes from Kent Station, 35 minutes from Patrick's Street or 30 minutes from the bus station on Parnell Place.
The 214 and 210 local bus routes also serve the stadium.
In addition to regular bus services, Bus Eireann will operate an enhanced Route 202, with a direct bus from Lapp’s Quay to Monahan Road adjacent to Páirc Uí Chaoimh every 10 minutes from 17:00hrs to 20:30hrs.

There is no parking available at the stadium or on the residential streets around it. The nearest car parks are Q-Park Carroll's Quay, Q-Park City Hall, Q-Park Grand Parade, Q-Park St Finbarr's and Paul Street Car Park.
