U2 is playing Angel Stadium tonight and Saturday night, with both concerts scheduled to start at 7 p.m.
The train is $7 round-trip from Union Station — a good deal — and probably a lot nicer than sitting in traffic on the 5 freeway or the stadium parking lot.
Here is the news release from Metrolink with all the details:
Metrolink Runs Special Trains to the U2 Concert June 17 and 18
Roundtrip tickets only $7
Los Angeles – Metrolink, SoCal’s commuter train service provider, is partnering with LiveNation, the world’s largest entertainment and eCommerce company, to offer affordable transportation options to the sold-out U2 concert at Angels Stadium of Anaheim on Friday, June 17.
“Public transportation makes getting to destinations across the region more affordable and convenient, while helping the environment,” said Metrolink CEO John Fenton. “The price tag is low and riding the train is safe and reliable and keeps people off the roads and out of traffic.”
The Metrolink station in Anaheim is just a short 10 minute walk to Angels Stadium. Metrolink will provide two special round-trip trains on Friday, June 17, and Saturday, June 18. A round-trip ticket to Anaheim Station from both L.A. Union Station and Laguna Niguel/Mission Viejo will be available for just $7.
Train tickets can be purchased at Metrolink ticket vending machines (TVMs). The special $7 pass can be purchased by selecting “Special Ticket Options” and selecting “Angels Train Pass”. At TVMs, credit cards, debit and cash are accepted. For more details on getting to the concert via Metrolink go to www.metrolinktrains.com or call 1-800-371-5465 (LINK).
