Extra train carriages and staff for crowds leaving Foo Fighters gig

Music fans are being warned not to get left behind after the Foo Fighters concerts at the National Bowl in Milton Keynes next weekend.

Thousands will head to the city on September 5 and 6, after Wembley Stadium gigs were re-scheduled when main man Dave Grohl broke his leg earlier this year.

To help control the crowds, London Midland will be putting extra staff on duty and additional measures will be in place.

While the train company will be putting on extra carriages, the advice to passengers is to allow plenty of time to get to your train or face disappointment.

Terry Oliver, London Midland’s Head of West Coast Services, said: “Trains will be very busy after the event, so don’t make the mistake of aiming for the last service or you could be disappointed.

“We will have a queuing system in place and we will only be selling tickets on the night to people we know we can get on to the train. ”
