Fans of legendary American rock band Guns N’ Roses are encouraged to catch free public transport to see the band perform in Brisbane tomorrow (Tuesday 7 February).

TransLink spokesperson Matt Longland said free bus and rail travel would be available to and from the show at the Queensland Sport and Athletics Centre (QSAC) in Nathan.

“Not only is this the first Australian concert of the band’s Not in this Lifetime world tour, but it will be the first time founder Axl Rose and former members, Slash and Duff McKagan have played together in Australia since 1993,” Mr Longland said.

“With a large crowd expected at the 42,000-capacity QSAC and gates opening early, we are encouraging concert goers to plan ahead and leave home early to catch a bus or train to help ensure their arrival at the Nathan venue is as smooth as possible.

“The main gates open at 5.30pm with support act Rose Tattoo playing at 6.15pm.

“There is no public parking at QSAC so the free public transport is an easy and convenient option.”

Travel on regular Brisbane Transport bus and Queensland Rail City Network train services to QSAC will be free from noon on February 7 for people with concert tickets or official accreditation.

All Gold Coast line trains will stop at Banoon station from 12pm until the last service on Tuesday night (7/2) with an additional inbound train after the concert to depart Banoon station at 11.02pm.

Special event buses will also provide free travel to the venue from 4:45pm at regular intervals from:

  • Eight Mile Plains Bus Station - Platform 1
  • Westfield Chermside Bus Interchange - Stop D
  • Westfield Carindale Bus Interchange - Stop H
  • Westfield Garden City Bus Interchange - Upper Mt Gravatt Bus Station - Platform 1
  • Banoon Train Station - Breton Street, Sunnybank
  • City - Ann Street (opposite Central Station)

Free travel on these special event buses will run for approximately one hour after the Guns N' Roses concert.      

Concert goers can also travel home for free on Queensland Rail City Network trains and Brisbane Transport buses for four hours after the concert.

“I encourage customers to plan ahead and use the journey planner on the TransLink website, the MyTransLink app, or phone 13 12 30 before they head to the concert,” Mr Longland said.
