Take That Concert in Bristol: Road Closures and Timetable Revealed

As Take That prepares to take the stage in Bristol for two highly anticipated concerts, fans are advised to take note of road closures and the event timetable. The iconic 90s boy band, best known for their chart-topping hits like Never Forget and Shine, will be bringing their This Life On Tour to Ashton Gate Stadium this weekend.

Stadium officials have announced that several roads will be closed to accommodate the influx of concert-goers. Ashton Road, Winterstoke Road, Barons Close, and Wedlock Way will all be subject to closures. Additionally, parking will not be available at the stadium, but a shuttle bus service will be in operation to transport fans to and from the concerts.

The last time Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, and Mark Owen graced the stage in Bristol was back in 2019 as part of the Ashton Gate’s Summer Series. Ashton Road is set to close from 15:00 BST on Saturday, with the ticket office and fan village opening simultaneously. The stadium gates will open at 17:00, and support act Olly Murs is scheduled to perform at 19:15.

For both concerts, Winterstoke Road, Barons Close, and Wedlock Way will be closed between 21:00 and midnight. Fans attending the event will be directed to enter the stadium through Gates 1, 2 & 3. Upon arrival, bag searches will be conducted, and attendees are reminded that bringing outside food and drink is prohibited, except for “medicinal purposes.”
