Coldplay’s Music of The Spheres World Tour arrives at Lumen Field on Weds Sept. 20. While they encourage you to drive “A faster car,” we say leave the driving to us! There are many transit options to get you to the concert.
If you thought that “no one ever said it would this hard” to get to the show, Metro’s preparing to make it easier for you with an additional handful of bus trips to help with post-concert crowds. Remember, every fan 18 and younger in King County can ride transit to the concert for free.
We encourage riders to allow extra travel time & board available transit swiftly within the half hour after concerts let out. Thank you in advance for your patience.
