It depends what you want to do.

If you want to be in first and race to the front so you're in the front row then I'd suggest 9.00am.

If you're happy to get in whenever and stroll about and get a place a bit further up then you won't have to queue up at all and just get there at about 2.00.

I should say that if it's the former then you'll have a very uncomfortable visit without being able to wee (people do it in pint pots and throw it backwards - even at Take That concerts) or get a drink or food...so be prepared.

Enjoy the concert.

Hi

Gates don't open till 4.30. If you make your way to stadium early and check it out there is city square an entertainment area just outside ground where you can have a drink and bite to eat. At least it u go earlier you can see queue situation but then go and have a drink ect. Weve got seated tickets because I didnt want to have to queue to get in.
