AROUND 34,000 people are gearing up to see Pink at her P!NK Summer Carnival concert in Newcastle.
The three-time Grammy award winning singer and international superstar is bringing her jaw-dropping spectacle to McDonald Jones Stadium at Broadmeadow this Tuesday, February 13, with special guest Australian singer-songwriter, Tones and I.
Keep an eye out for the city's "Pink party trail" this weekend including a dancefloor and 300 kilogram disco ball in Wheeler Place.
Doors open at 5pm and the concert starts at 7.30pm. With general admission standing on the field, make sure to get in early for easy access.
There will be a cloak room, merchandise truck, and food and beverage trucks outside the stadium.
Leave your food and drink, bags bigger than 40cm x 40cm, banners or flags at home.
Transport for NSW has said to expect high pedestrian traffic around the stadium before and after the show.
At the end of the show, from about 10.15pm, Turton Road will be closed between Griffiths and Lambton roads and will reopen once crowds have cleared.
"We are encouraging those who are attending to use public transport and plan ahead," Transport for NSW's Andrew Dalgairns, said.
