‘Absolute shambles’ at Pink concert as fans trapped in car park for hours

Fans of top pop star Pink were left raging after being stuck in a car park for several hours after a UK gig.

The 43-year-old kicked off the European leg of her Summer Carnival 2023 tour at the prestigious University of Bolton Stadium last night (Wednesday, June 7).

However, happy concertgoes were quickly left feeling angry two hours after the event ended when they found themselves still stuck in the car park. Police even turned up to try and solve the issue.

The stadium, home to Bolton Wanderers FC, holds 28,723 people, although this is increased for gigs as standing tickets are made available as the pitch is turned into an area for fans.

Taking to Twitter to vent their frustrations, one person showed a video of the car park chaos at 1.26am.

In the video, hundreds of cars can be seen bumper to bumper, unable to leave, the Manchester Evening News reports.

And fan Diane Wood wrote on Facebook: "Pink was absolutely amazing but police have had to be called to try and clear the car park.

"We along with hundreds of other people are still stuck on the car park 2hrs after the end of the concert I would never attend another one here total and utter chaos."

And another posted: “Two and a half hours to get out of a car park when we were right next to an exit barrier but they wouldn’t let us out!

“Never been to such a place and will never go there again – shocking!”

A third wrote: "We paid £25 to park in the accessibility parking with the premits we would be able to leave in a timely manner?

"We understand there would be some delay but it’s gone 12:30 pm and we haven’t moved.

"An absolute shambles and zero organisation."

It is not clear what the hold up was about, but Transport for Greater Manchester did advise ahead of the gig that they were laying on shuttle buses to Bolton, Wigan and Chorley to ease the possibilities of car park chaos – which happened anyway.

No comment has been made by the University of Bolton Stadium's management as yet.
