Everything you need to know about concerts and Major Events at Anfield Stadium.

Concerts & Major Events

We have been working hard alongside Liverpool City Council, Merseytravel and other external stakeholders to ensure that appropriate plans have been put in place to help minimise the impact that crowds may have on the local community and transport routes in the Anfield area during the concert season.

We are mindful that the stadium is situated in a residential area, and we are keen to minimise the impact on the local community where possible.

Here you will find all the necessary information for concerts including;

The Rolling Stones (Thursday 9th June 2022)

Elton John (Friday 17th June 2022)

Eagles (Monday 20th June 2022)

If you have any questions or queries in relation to these plans, please email
