Extra trams for Eagles anniversary

Rock legends The Eagles will be celebrating half a century since they first hit the road when they take to the stage at the BT Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh next week - and the city’s tram network has lined up a great travel offer that’s sure to be a hit with fans.

With services from every seven minutes throughout the day, Edinburgh Trams will be boosting frequency to every three minutes before and after the landmark gig on Wednesday, June 22. Fans can also take advantage of more than a thousand free parking spaces at the Ingliston Park & Ride to help them avoid traffic congestion on the night.

What’s more, groups heading to the concert can save money by pre-purchasing a ‘Family Day Tripper’ ticket for just £7.50 at www.edinburghticket.com. The ticket can be used for unlimited tram travel for up to 2 adults plus up to 3 children and is valid between all stops except Edinburgh Airport.  

Edinburgh Trams’ Managing Director Lea Harrison said:

The Eagles have proved one of the most influential bands of all time and we want to help make sure fans have hassle-free travel to the show so they can concentrate on enjoying their favourite hits, such as Hotel California, Life in the Fast Lane, and Take It Easy.

As Edinburgh is hosting the only Scottish date on the anniversary tour, the concert will attract thousands of visitors from across the country and beyond. With the tram stop right beside the stadium, travelling to and from Murrayfield by tram couldn’t be easier!

At Murrayfield, The Eagles will be joined by country outfit Little Big Town, and further details can be found here.
