Superstar P!NK is set to embark on her Summer Carnival World Tour next week- and her first stop is Bolton.

Coming to the University of Bolton Stadium next Wednesday, June 7 and Thursday, June 8, the American singer-songwriter is set to take to the stage performing some of her much-loved music.

The Summer Carnival is being promoted and delivered by concert promoter Marshall Arts Ltd and the concerts will mark the start of the world tour – with the stadium expecting almost 35,000 concertgoers attending each day.

The concerts will be held in the open air, with music due to start 5.30pm and finishing by 11pm on each day.

Doors are set to open at 4.30pm.

P!NK will be supported by special guests at the concerts including Kidcutup, Gayle and The Script.

The council have issued advice for parking and traffic management with extensive traffic restrictions in place due to concertgoers travelling by different forms of transport such as car, coaches, public transport, taxis and also by foot.

The local authority said they are expecting "heavy traffic congestion" in the area between 2pm and 9.30pm on both days with concertgoers arriving and then again at 10.30pm when visitors exit the stadium concert site.

Parking for private cars will be provided within the main car parks of the stadium (B, C and E), and a portion of car park A beside the Whites Hotel.

Further car parking will also be available from within the Middlebrook Retail and Leisure Park and within the nearby Tesco Extra car park including additional overspill available at St Joseph’s RC High School and Sports College and Bolton Arena.

For those wishing to drop off and pick up concertgoers will be positioned within the Tesco Extra site and the petrol station, which will be in operation from 12pm on concert days.

A shuttle bus service will also be in operation for the concerts – Cranfield Road will be used as the drop off and collection point for the shuttle bus service.

A taxi rank will also operate for drop off and pick up on the upper end of the Cranfield Road going towards Lostock Lane.

Taxi provisions have been planned in partnership with the council, Greater Manchester Police, Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, Traffic for Greater Manchester, and the promoter.

Toilets will also be situated around the venue and parking and at drop off provisions.

The council, organisers and the University of Bolton Stadium state they apologise to residents who live in the area in advance for any inconvenience that may be caused by the noise from the concerts.
