Your easiest route is to walk to Liverpool One bus station, a few minutes away, and catch the 26 Shiel Road bus. They're every 10 mins and should take about 20 minutes to get to the ground.

You could also walk to St George's Hall, which is further away, but from there you can catch the 917 express to the ground with other fans.

There's loads of black cabs you can hop in to, should cost no more than 10. Just make sure the meter is running and doesn't have an X on it. Most cabbies are brilliant, but one or two have been known to scam people heading to Anfield.

Ah OK thanks so much guys!

Anyone any idea what time itll finish? I wouldve thought being a residential area it would have had to be done by 10ish?

Want to make sure we can make the last train home!

Above is what the residents have received from Anfield.

There is a small car park on Utting Avenue (facing the Co Op) which is open (think its around 10 a car). Please note that the residents parking zone dates have been extended until the end of June and the traffic wardens were all out issuing fines when Take That played the other week. Its already busy around here and people have been parking up since 8am this morning. Hope you all enjoy the concert, been listening to sound checks for a while.

I thought the sound was a bit off last night, but that could of been where we were seated in the new stand..
all in all a great concert and a great venue!
We parked at the bingo off county road and walked through Stanley park
Did anyone have any issues getting to Anfield from town? I read that there were some issues with the buses

We were ok getting the bus there, and left before the encore so were fine getting back (I know we probably missed the best bit!)

My brother came to meet us later on as he had to work, he said the queue for the busses was huge but he got to us fairly quickly.

I thought Bon Jovi were amazing, but I dont think I would attend another concert at Anfield.

The ratio of pitch available for general standing was way too small. We were eligible for standing, but if our section had gone down there we would have been crushed. I saw a fight break out (happens) but security took so long to get to them it was ridiculous - especially considering they were pretty much next to it!

Only 1 till on the entire row of snack bars was taking cash, again ridiculous as all of them were open. Why were they only taking cards?

Finally, the sound and accoustics were really bad - in fact completely shocking in parts!

Ive been to concerts at the Ethiad and Old Trafford Cricket Ground, as well as other outdoor venues and theyve always handled it so much better.

Its a shame really, although my Dad really enjoyed himself so that was a good thing
