EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW AHEAD OF RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS WITH POST MALONE AT ACCOR STADIUM

Friday 20 January 2023 12:00am

MORE than 110,000 music fans will stream through the gates of Accor Stadium to watch legendary rockers Red Hot Chili Peppers over two nights – and fans are being encouraged to plan their trip and arrive early for the huge shows.

Tickets to both shows on Thursday 2 February and Saturday 4 February include return travel to Olympic Park on Sydney Trains, while integrated travel will also extend to Major Event Buses on 9 routes from 15:15 across Greater Sydney for the weekday show on Thursday.

Red Hot Chili Peppers return to Sydney for the first time since 2019, with the tour marking the return of guitarist and all-round cosmic musician John Frusciante to the group, as they perform their career-spanning hits alongside tracks from their new album ‘Return of the Dream Canteen’. 

Joining Red Hot Chili Peppers at their back-to-back Sydney gigs will be multi-platinum selling superstar Post Malone. The New York-born rapper, singer, and songwriter is a huge name of his own, as he is among the best-selling music artists globally with over 80 million records sold across four career albums.

More than 10,000 car spaces at Olympic Park have already sold out for Thursday’s opening show, and fans who have not secured parking are advised not to drive to the Olympic Park precinct.

We advise getting to the precinct early to allow for the stadium entry process in order to get to your seat well before for the first act of the night at 19:15.

Hot Tip: Arrive early and enjoy the pre-concert atmosphere. Local cafes and restaurants will be open all day and night. Fig Grove will be a hub for food trucks and entertainment from 4pm.

Tickets

To avoid queues at the box office pre-purchase tickets online via Ticketmaster.

Tickets can only be accessed via mobile web browser or the Ticketmaster app (except Collector Tickets which are mailed out). We strongly recommend you download your tickets before coming to the venue. These can be accessed via the My Tickets section of your Ticketmaster account. Please have the brightness turned up on your phone and your tickets ready as you approach the gate.

Hot Tip: Download and share tickets with your group prior to arriving at the Stadium, this will help speed up the gate entry process.

 

Getting Here

With over 100,000 fans due in the precinct over the two nights, use of public transport is advised because: Car Parks at Sydney Olympic Park are selling fast. P1 has SOLD OUT for both shows. 

Public transport is included in your concert ticket, please note:

  • Show 1: Integrated Rail and Major event buses
  • Show 2: Integrated Rail only.

Public transport information for Show 2: click here

If you have pre-booked parking, carpool. And plan well ahead. Sydney Olympic Park will be extremely busy with big crowds expected. Combined with the usual daily peak hour (roughly 5-7pm) there will be heavy traffic around the Stadium and delays are expected. 

If you have not pre-booked a parking spot in Sydney Olympic Park, DO NOT DRIVE.

Follow directional signage when you arrive at the Park as road closures will also be in place for public safety.

 

Stadium Entry Process

Red Hot Chili Pepper fans are encouraged to arrive early and allow additional time for the security screening process when entering the Stadium. This process will include mandatory bag searches and personal checks.

Only small bags (no larger than 30cm x 40cm) are permitted into Accor Stadium, and all bags will be checked by security. Fans should arrive without bags if possible.

Hot Tip: The most important thing for a great event day is to plan your trip, get moving early and leave plenty of time for getting to Sydney Olympic Park and into Accor Stadium. Plan your trip using the Transport for NSW Trip Planner.

Getting Home

Please be patient when departing, it will take time to exit with over 50,000 people leaving the Park on both nights.

If you plan to book a rideshare, your best option to avoid surge fees and meet your driver faster is to use public transport to get to the nearest train station or bus stop and book your rideshare to collect you from there.

The taxi rank will be operating on Herb Elliott Ave, near Australia Avenue.
