The global hitmaker arrives in Liverpool to play three sold-out shows from Thursday, June 13 - Saturday, June 15. Fans travelling to the concerts could face disruption as nearly 500 Stagecoach bus drivers are set to strike.

The bus drivers are due to strike from Thursday, June 13 - Tuesday, June 18, which could make getting to the stadium more difficult for visitors. You can read the full list of Liverpool buses that won't run during the strikes here.
