P!nk's back-to-back shows at Anfield Stadium will be affected by bus driver strikes.

The iconic hitmaker will play at Anfield Stadium on Monday, June 24 and Tuesday, June 25. Last week, plans for a walk-out of Stagecoach drivers in the city set were called off after talks between the company and the Unite union resulted in a new pay offer, which was recommended for acceptance by the Unite union.

However, it was later confirmed that despite the union's recommendation, Stagecoach drivers had rejected the offer and strikes will now take place from Monday, June 24.

The drivers and other Stagecoach workers are now expected to take strike action for two days - on Monday, June 24 and Tuesday, June 25, the same dates as P!nk's Summer Carnival tour, with Stagecoach operating a limited service from Gillmoss depot on those dates.

Changes in bus operations

The 917 shuttle bus from Liverpool city centre to Anfield, operated by Stagecoach, will not be affected by the strike action.

The following Stagecoach services will not operate: 10A, 14, 53, 82, 86 (Arriva services will be operating on these routes). In addition to this, contracted services will not be operating. People affected need to arrange alternative transport.

Services 17, 19, 20/21 will operate at a reduced frequency between 6.30am – 19.30 on the proposed industrial action dates.

Stagecoach services 1/X1, X2 & 471/472 operating from other depots into Liverpool will operate as normal as other Stagecoach depots are not involved in the industrial action.
