Anyone heading to Pink’s highly anticipated Gold Coast concert tonight is being urged to give themselves plenty of time, with a tram driver strike expected to cause some travel chaos.

Tram drivers will walk off the job for 24 hours from 1pm on Tuesday, coinciding with the concert being held at Heritage Bank Stadium.

More than 45,000 fans are expected to pour into the stadium to watch the three-time Grammy Award-winning singer light up the stage.

However, concertgoers are being warned it could be a little more difficult trying to get there and home due to the planned industrial action.

“We apologise for the inconvenience this action will have on our passengers, during this busy time of the year,” G:link boss Phil Mumford said.

“G:link will continue to operate during this period of industrial action, however, there may be delays to services at certain times”.

The strike will see tram services reduced from running every 7 and a half minutes to every 15 minutes, however, shuttle buses will also be brought in to help ferry fans to the concert.


More than 100 dedicated shuttle buses will run between Heritage Bank Stadium and Nerang station, Boowaggan Road park ‘n’ ride and Broadbeach South station before and after the show.

An additional 18 shuttle buses will run from Marine Parade at Southport to Broadbeach South Station, along with 15 shuttle buses from Cypress Avenue to Broadbeach South station and twelve shuttle buses from Parkwood station to Helensvale station.

Mr Mumford is encouraging concertgoers to plan their trip early.

“We ask people – plan your trip, plan to get to the stadium early, and plan your trip home as well,” he said.

“We certainly apologise for this event, but we encourage people to please plan your trip well in advance”.

The concert will be P!nk’s first show on the Glitter Strip since she performed at the Convention Centre in 2007.


Gates are set to open at 5pm, with the show scheduled to kick off at 7pm.
