Easy Travel To Big Day Out

Easy Travel To Big Day Out

Concert goers to the Big Day Out at Ericsson Stadium this Friday the 21st January can travel there and back the easy way, on a special Stagecoach Express bus.

Buses will depart to the Big Day Out every 15 minutes, starting at 9.15am, from Real Groovy Records, 450 Upper Queen St. All buses will travel direct to Ericsson Stadium with the last bus at 3pm.

Return buses depart from directly outside Gate B at Ericsson Stadium starting at 9.30pm. The last bus from the stadium departs at approximately 11.45pm. All buses return direct to the St. James on Queen Street.

The fare is $5.00 cash each way. No other passes or fares accepted.

NiteRider buses, which leave from outside the St. James and Civic Theatres, are an ideal way for those ‘Big Day Outers’, partying on in town after the concert, to get home. NiteRider buses depart between 1am and 3am every Friday and Saturday night. The fare is either $4 or $6 depending on where you are going, and most Auckland suburbs have a NiteRider service.

To get more information on the special Big Day Out Express Bus Service, or for NiteRider and other connecting bus timetables, intending passengers should phone Rideline on 366 6400 or visit the Stagecoach web site at

Howard Davis Review: The Creole Stylings of Cécile McLorin Salvant

"You only get a singer like this once in a generation or two," commented Wynton Marsalis, who has repeatedly hired her to front his jazz orchestra and mounted a 25 foot high portrait of her on the exterior of Lincoln Center. “She radiates authority. She has poise, elegance, soul, humour, sensuality, power, virtuosity, range, insight, intelligence, depth, and grace.” More>>

Max Rashbrooke Review: The King's Singers and Voices New Zealand

To be good at one thing is impressive; to be so versatile across a range of genres is truly exceptional. The latest incarnation of this six-strong male singing group includes Kiwi Christopher Bruerton, and it was a delight to hear him sing the solo on the achingly beautiful My Love Is like a Red, Red Rose.
