Upwards of 25,000 people are expected to visit new Mosaic Stadium for ‘Regina Rocks Mosaic’ Saturday night.
For those going, 980 CJME has provided some useful pieces of information to help people’s experience go as hassle-free as possible.
Gates open at 4 p.m. with Our Lady Peace performing at 6 p.m. and Johnny Reid at 7:30 p.m., each playing for one hour. Headliner Bryan Adams will start at 9 p.m. and perform for two hours. The concert will end at 11 p.m.
Between the main acts, other entertainment will be provided.
Those with tickets can enter through either gates 2, 3 or 4. However, there is no re-entry so once people leave they won’t be allowed back in. Smokers will have a designated area.
Transportation and Parking
Elphinstone Street between Dewdney Avenue and north of Saskatchewan Drive will be closed to traffic from 2 p.m. to midnight.
