Going To Adele? You Need To Read This!
Helloooo! It's Adele!
She's only in Brisbane for two days over the weekend, but you'll definitely know she's arrived!
Expected attendance is approximately 60k, and the venue has been stocking up with 20k glasses of champagne, 40k glasses of wine and 200kg of cheese and crackers. But the transport issue of getting to and from the event is a whole other story.
Thankfully, Translink have come to the rescue - doubling the number of buses normally needed for a Gabba event.
That's 400 buses dedicated exclusively to the Adele concert.
Meanwhile extra trains have also been scheduled for Brisbane and the Gold Coast.
That doesn't mean it won't still be traffic chaos.
They are advising people to arrive up to three hours early - with gates opening at 5:30pm for a 7:30pm start.
Transport for those heading to the concert is FREE from midday, making it even easier.
RANDOM OMG FACTS ABOUT THE EVENT:
23,897 white chairs have been brought into the Gabba to accommodate the huge 60k crowd
18,000 square metres of turf protection have been laid down on the Gabba surface
180 portable toilets have also been added to the venue's current facilities
All crew working on the stage setup have been forced to hand in their mobile phones so no leaks are released
60,000 wine glasses have been brought in
And even more exciting is the 200kg of cheese!

96 production and staging semi-trailers have travelled from Perth on a 55 hour commute
2,500 staff members are involved in the setup and smooth running on the night - across catering, roadies, security, customer service and so on.
