Edinburgh Trams will extend services beyond midnight when the Rolling Stones bring their ‘No Filter’ show to BT Murrayfield Stadium this Saturday (9 June).

Services will run from every three minutes until after midnight from Murrayfield Stadium to accommodate more than 50,000 fans who are expected to attend.

Doors open at 4pm and concert goers can make their way to the stadium on Edinburgh Trams which will be serving stops including Edinburgh Airport, Ingliston Park & Ride, Edinburgh Gateway, Haymarket and St Andrew Square (for Waverley).

Sarah Singh, Operations Manager at Edinburgh Trams, explained:

“We’re extending our service beyond midnight to ensure concert goers can get home safely after what promises to be a fantastic show.

“As well as choosing from a range of fares that offer fantastic value for money, Rolling Stones fans can also avoid the traffic and the hassle of finding a parking space close to the stadium by taking the tram.”
