What time do concerts at the Hallenstadion typically end?

I'm bringing a few school-aged girls to see Katy Perry at the Hallenstadion in March and we're trying to figure out roughly what time the concert will end in order to organize transportation back (it's a school night).

The concert starts at 19:45 pm. For some reason I have in my head that it will (or needs to?) end by 10 pm, but am not sure. Thanks for your input!

Here's a tip - if you're going by car, you can pay for the parking in advance.

Thanks. I actually hadn't considered parking there but taking the train. Is it right at the Hallenstadion?

You can take the train to the station "Oerlikon", the Hallenstadion can be reached by bus (No.94) or is in walking distance (10 mins)

Number 11 tram goes directly by there as well.

We're actually travelling from the 'burbs and could take the S-bahn....but now I am rather intrigued by the parking idea because I'd like to get out of there as quickly as possible! But maybe traffic is also quite heavy after a concert?

As Tram 11 stops at Hallenstadion, I think it's better to park several stops away. After the concert, take the Tram back and at least avoid the "congested" area.

After the concert, most people walk to the oerlikon station, because the bus or tram service is limited( capacity problem as well) and the distance to the station.

Then take the train, l drove there once never again, the queue to get out of that car park was just crazy.

Re: What time do concerts at the Hallenstadion typically end?

Maybe it is worth checking out reviews for the band you will be seeing - it might give a clue as to the length of their usual live set.

cheers,
Nick

most times main acts do have an support act. they get on stage 8 and play 30 mins. so the main act starts 21-21:30 and they play 1-1:30h so 10:30-11:00 its done.

Re: What time do concerts at the Hallenstadion typically end?

Thanks everyone. Yes, opening act (a bit late, but good -- Charlie XCX) for appx. 30 min then Katy Perry went on. I think we left the stadium around 22:45.

Fortunately someone offered to pick us up after the concert from the hotel across the street so no transportation delays, and the girls were bed at a "reasonable" hour. They had an absolute blast at the concert Me, well I remember when concerts involved bands actually playing instruments, not sing along to backup tracks But overall, a very entertaining evening!
