Suggested routes for reaching the concert

Those planning to attend the Elton John and Billy Joel concert tonight should keep these tips in mind for getting to the Fargodome:

Fargodome parking lots will open at 4:30 p.m., with the public doors opening for the concert at 6 p.m.

Fargodome officials advise guests to arrive early using recommended routes because parking lots are expected to fill quickly. Any overflow will be directed to auxiliary parking lots.

Ways to go

Additional parking is available and recommended at the John E. Carlson Coliseum at 17th Avenue and 10th Street North.

Buses, limousines

All buses will be directed to offload on the west side of the Fargodome using Albrecht Avenue.

Buses will be staged along Albrecht Avenue after the concert to accept riders. When leaving, they will be directed to 19th Avenue.

Anyone planning to bring a bus to the facility is asked to contact the Fargodome ahead of time and speak with Bernie Larson (701) 241-9100.

Limousines and other drop-offs should take place on the east side of the Fargodome at the main entrance.

No tailgating or alcohol consumption is permitted at the Fargodome parking lot before the concert.
