Concert-goers attending the Beyoncé show at the Stadium of Light next week are being advised to arrive as early as possible.

There's a sell-out crowd of well over 50,000 expected on Wearside.

Stadium doors will open from 4.30pm - with queues expected to build quickly.

Roads immediately surrounding the stadium will be closed to all traffic on the day and there are no vehicle pick up or drop off areas on, or near to the site.

Extensive car parking will be available in Sunderland city centre and routes into the city will be well signposted.

There is no public parking at the Stadium of Light.
