Who is playing the opening acts?
Ed Sheeran will be accompanying three UK musicians on the tour: 22-year-old singer and songwriter Maisie Peters from Brighton, who recently released her debut album – You signed up for it – and thus landed at # 1 on the British album charts. Also Cat Burns, a 21-year-old British pop singer from London who became known via social media Tik Tok with her song “Go”. Her real name is Catrina Keri Oluwaseun Burns-Temison. And Griff – a singer raised north of London, born in 2001 and named a Rising Star at last year’s Brit Awards – appears on select pop star shows. Her real name is Sarah Faith Griffiths.
Maisie Peters performs at almost all of Ed Sheeran’s concerts and accompanies him to his first concerts, incl. at Wembley Stadium in London. He will also sing in Gelsenkirchen. Cat Burns also performs – before Ed Sheeran was allowed to sing his songs like “Shape of you” or his latest title “Bring me the horizon”.
How do the concert-goers get to the venue?
With local public transport The Veltins Arena is located at Rudi-Assauer-Platz 1 in Gelsenkirchen. If you want to travel by train or bus, you can get there via the Gelsenkirchen Hauptbahnhof intermediate station. Tram 302, which stops there in the basement, also goes to the Veltins Arena. To do this, you need to go down the escalator. Visitors should board towards Gelsenkirchen-Buer. On days when important events take place, local transport company Bogestra uses “sufficient special trains,” according to the ticket vendor Eventim on its website. The tram is then on its way for about a quarter of an hour. The arrival stop at the stadium is also called Veltins Arena. However, Eventim advises people with “limited mobility” to get off one stop earlier – at Willy-Brandt-Allee. “Because this stop is barrier-free and only a little further from the arena,” says Eventim. Timetable information can be found in the Verkehrsverbund Rhein-Ruhr and in Bogestra.
By car For those arriving by car, take the A2 motorway via the Gelsenkirchen-Buer exit or the A42 via the Gelsenkirchen-Schalke exit to the Veltins Arena. The road to the stadium is signposted at intersections. On-site parking signs, which indicate free parking spaces, guide drivers to their local parking spaces. There are a total of 14,000 parking spaces. Parking at Adenauerallee and Willy-Brandt-Allee costs five euros.
By bike There are also a total of 600 bicycle parking spaces as FC Schalke 04 talks about its home stadium. “They are guarded and are located in front of Tunnel 1 and behind the East ticket office.”
