Traffic would be diverted around the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg this weekend to accommodate crowds for the Bon Jovi and Justin Bieber concerts, metro police has said.

“The Soweto highway will be blocked off at 2pm today for the Bon Jovi concert and tomorrow it will be blocked off from midday for the Justin Bieber concert,” said Chief Superintendent Wayne Minnaar today.

He said with at least 60% of fans for Bieber’s concert likely to be minors, a drop-off zone had been developed for the concert on Landbou road.

“Parents are advised to use Rand Show road to enter the drop-off area,” said Minnaar.

“Alcohol and braaing will not be allowed inside the parking area at both concerts. The Soweto highway will be open to traffic at midnight for both concerts.”
