Everything you need to know about the Beyonce gig; CENTRE STAGE.

The one and only Beyonce brings her incredible Formation tour to Cardiff's Principality Stadium on June 30.

She's already played 20 cities across the US and Canada since the end of April and is now taking a twoweek break before opening her UK shows in Sunderland before making her way to the Welsh capital.

If you are preparing for your day out with Bey, look no further for all the essential info...

What time do the gates open? Ticketholders will be able to enter the stadium on June 30 from 4.30pm, with the show expected to start at around 7pm to 7.30pm.

Are there any tickets left? The answer is, yes.

We checked the TicketMaster website and found standing tickets starting at PS81.25 each. You can also buy box seats from PS97.65 and north stand seating from PS119.35.

What about getting there and parking? For those unfamiliar with the Principality Stadium, there is no dedicated spectator car parking at, or near, the stadium but there is plenty of parking available in the city centre itself. Cardiff Central is the nearest station to the stadium and operates mainline services from West Wales, the Midlands, the South Coast and London.

Cardiff Queen Street Station is a 15-minute walk to the east of the Stadium and offers local rail services across Cardiff and from the South Wales Valleys.

A queuing system is generally in operation at Cardiff Central Station after each event so check the Arriva Trains website before travelling for further information.

When arriving from Cardiff Central station passengers should bear left along Wood Street for Gates 5, 6 and 7 or bear right along Wood Street to Westgate Street for Gates 4, 3, 2 continuing around to Gate 1 on Castle Street.
