Fans of Sir Paul McCartney have been warned by Suncorp Stadium officials to arrive at the venue early, with security staff under orders to search every bag entering the stadium and also conduct random checks with metal detectors.

Suncorp Stadium general manager Alan Graham encouraged concert-goers to avoid bringing a bag if possible and be prepared for security to conduct targeted "wanding" with metal detectors.

“Our message to fans is plan to arrive early and do not bring a bag unless absolutely necessary," he said.

“Backpacks and bags larger than A3 size will not be permitted inside the stadium.

"Everyone has a part to play when it comes to security. Please be vigilant and if you see anything suspicious or of concern, report it immediately."

Mr Graham said from noon onwards, fans will be able to travel free on bus and rail using their concert ticket and special services have been scheduled to run regularly to the venue from 4.30pm.

“Our transport providers will ensure there are a sufficient number of buses and trains available during the day to make it easy for fans to arrive early."

Gates open at 5pm with a DJ support act at 6:30pm and a McCartney film to be shown on the big screens ahead of Sir Paul’s expected arrival on stage prior to 7.30pm.
