Irish rockers The Script will play to a full house on Saturday, and here's what you need to know if you’re going to the hotly anticipated event.

Doors open in Croke Park at 5.30pm, with the first support act, The Wailers, taking to the stage an hour later at 6.30pm and Pharrell Williams is scheduled to perform at 7.00pm

The special homecoming gig takes place just ahead of their headlining show at Tennent's Vital when it returns to Belfast in August.

Gardai will have systems in place to ensure there is no early queuing, so they have advised concert goers not to come before gates open, especially those with seated tickets.

Translink coach and rail specials will operate to The Script concert. Full details are available here.

Customers are reminded that return times are dependent on traffic conditions and online sales will close at 10am on the day of the event.

Tickets are NOT AVAILABLE to buy in person at Ulsterbus Stations or from the driver. Customers are emailed their e-ticket with booking details, including a booking reference to the email address supplied.

Alcohol, glass bottles and cans will not be allowed into Croke Park, though there will be food and drink sold on the premises

Selfie sticks are banned from the event, as are large cameras and audio recording devices. Glow sticks, along with flags and banners larger than A4 are also permitted.

Concert-goers are being urged to walk to the stadium or use public transport. Dublin Bus have a number of routes that run close to Croke Park, Iarnrod Eireann will be bringing in extra trains into Drumcondra Station, Bus Eireann will have extra buses on and Luas will keep to a frequent schedule.

Can't wait for that moment at #TheScriptCroke! Who's coming?

The Script official Twitter account have been counting down the days to the show and tweeted that they couldn't wait for the moment they walked on stage.

MCD have advised attendees to plan their route to the stadium in advance and double check what entrance of the stadium they have to use.

Fans under the age of 16 can only attend the concert once they are accompanied by an adult over the age of 18.

Anyone under the age of 14 will not be allowed on the pitch, with or without an adult.

Although the gig is a sell-out with 80,000 fans expected, MCD say there are still a limited number of tickets available for the event on Ticketmaster.

For those unable to get tickets, the band have teamed up with Livestream to broadcast the gig to their fans worldwide.
