Kings of Leon are due to play two huge shows at the Racecourse Ground this weekend, on Saturday May 27 and Sunday May 28.
Supported by Far From Saints – the new band of former Stereophonics’ front man, Kelly Jones, and The Wind and The Wave duo Patty Lynn and Dwight Baker – and local icons, the Declan Swans, the shows are the perfect way to celebrate the end of a promotion-winning season at the Racecourse.
Preparations are well underway, with just a handful of tickets available.
If you’re looking to attend the Racecourse Ground on Saturday or Sunday, here’s everything you need to know.
All tickets have been emailed out. Please check your emails, including your junk folder, and if you have not received your ticket please contact the vendor from which you purchased it.
A very small quantity of tickets are available to buy from Ticketmaster here.

Before you travel
Please note the weather forecast. It is set to be hot and sunny. Please dress appropriately for the weather, wear suncream and make use of the water stations on site to ensure you stay hydrated.
Don’t forget to bring your tickets. A box office will be located on Mold Road in the event of any issues.
Bags and searches
Please do not bring any bags larger than A4. Full searches of bags and attendees will be undertaken on entry. Empty drinking vessels are not permitted, but sealed 500ml bottles of water are permitted (maximum one per person, with water stations available on site for refilling). Small bottles of suncream are permitted.
Car parking at Wrexham Glyndwr University is for pre-booked cars only. To book your place, follow the links below.
All eTickets must be printed out and displayed in your windscreen in order to park at the university.
Accessible parking is on Car Park D (alongside the William Aston Hall), where the usual matchday blue badge parking operates. Parking in Car Park D is for blue badge holders only, and cars parked there must display both the blue badge and the car parking eTicket.
Park & Ride
Park & Ride is for pre-booked cars only. Please do not park there if you have not already booked your place.
Access will be available from 1.30pm, with the first coach departing for the Racecourse Ground at 1.45pm.
All places must be pre-booked, with no on-the-day payments available. Please remember to have your ticket ready for scanning/checking on arrival at the car parks.
Coaches will pick up from opposite the Macron Stand on the Mold Road for the return journey, with the final coach set to depart at 11.30pm.
Pre (and during) event
Mold Road will be one way only – heading out of town – between 13.00 and 21.45, with all inbound traffic (including residents, Park and Ride and coaches to the event) using alternative routes, either directed or diverted. This will reduce any confusion at B&Q roundabout and therefore improve traffic flows.
Park & Ride and any coaches to the event will be directed through town, either via Ruthin Road and be allowed to drop off on the inbound side of Mold Road, then rejoin the outbound carriageway. This will be managed by TM Operatives. Residents will also have to access the roads opposite the stadium via the City Centre. Crispin Lane will be closed with resident access from Stansty Road only.
There will be a full road closure from 21.45, while the stadium is emptying, during which time access for residents will be controlled from both ends.
Roads affected: Grosvenor Road, Bradley Road, Regent Street, Stansty Road (under bridge)
All traffic from Wrexham Glyndwr University will exit onto the Plas Coch Roundabout.
All traffic left from Plas Coch School into Stansty Chain Road.
Crispin Lane will be closed at the access to the back of the Racecourse Ground.
When leaving the Racecourse Ground, please be respectful of our neighbours and their property.
Concession stands will be located in the event village on the Wrexham Lager Stand car park, on the pitch and in the Macron Stand concourse. There will also be several foot outlets behind the stage.
*IMPORTANT* This will be a cashless event – card payments only
Merchandise stalls are available on site, on the pitch near to the bars. As above, please note that this will be a cashless event – card payments only
