The Link bus, which stops on Beach Road close to Vector Arena, is a good way to get to the concert. Passengers can catch The Link from various locations around the CBD, Parnell, Newmarket, Karangahape Road and Ponsonby. The cash fare is $1.60 one way.

Concertgoers are advised to allow plenty of time to get to Vector Arena in time for the show.

Music fans heading home to the North Shore can catch an additional ferry to Devonport at 12:00am midnight on both concert nights.

Normal bus, train and ferry fares will apply.

Those planning to use public transport to and from the concert can get more information from MAXX on (09) 366 6400 or at www.maxx.co.nz
