Legends of Summer Concert Information

Posted by Taylor Price on July 15, 2013 – 9:51 AM

A traffic and parking advisory release  for the “Legends of Summer” concert on July 26th at Candlestick has been provided by the stadium operations department of the San Francisco 49ers.

Attention ALL Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z fans attending the show on July 26th: Plan your trip to Candlestick Park in advance.

This highly-anticipated event is completely sold-out. Candlestick Park has parking available on-site but there are also large events at AT&T Park (Cubs/Giants-7:15 pm game), Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View (John Mayer-7:30 show), and in Oakland, (A’s /Angels-7:05 game) all of which will be using Highway 101 and other Bay Area highways with large attendances expected, therefore, ARRIVING EARLY, car-pooling and using public transportation are CRITICAL to you not missing any of this incredible show.  Heavy Highway 101 traffic and congested streets are anticipated around Candlestick Park and the stretch between San Jose and San Francisco on Highway 101 for this event could cause long delays. We encourage you to arrive at Candlestick Park prior to 4:00 pm to help avoid possible delays due to traffic.  Candlestick Park and the adjacent parking lots will provide sufficient parking but we strongly urge you to carpool and arrive early. To meet this extraordinary demand, and for your convenience, there are adjacent off-site parking options as well as shuttle rides to and from the stadium from public transportation options.  Gates to the plazas of Candlestick Park will open at 4:30 PM and some of your favorite local radio stations will provide entertainment, while food and beverage options will be available for purchase. Seating in the stadium will be available, starting at 5:30 PM.

If you are coming from San Francisco, the Peninsula, South Bay or East Bay, STAY OFF HIGHWAY 101 for as long as you can, using Highways 280, Highway 92, and Highway 380.

    Parking opens at 3:30, does that mean tailgating will be allowed?

    In regards to bike parking, will it be attended valet bike parking? Or self service, unguarded bike parking?
