So, let's get organised.

The girls will be taking to the stage at around 9.15pm but before that you can get hyped with Jess Glynne who will perform at 7pm.

We know you're excited and you want to be at the venue in time but be aware that no queuing is allowed before the gates open at 6pm.

Security measures will be in place to make sure that things run smoothly and that everyone has a fun night.

Don't bring any backpacks or large bags.

No bag larger than A4 size will be allowed and there won't be any cloakroom or bag storage facilites available.

There are a number of items that aren't allowed in including umbrellas, selfie sticks, iPads, GoPros and alcohol.

Everyone attending will be subject to searches so allow plenty of time to get through the security checks.

Friday's gig is completely sold out with over 75,000 people expected.

With so many fans flocking to Croke Park it's essential to plan how you're getting there.

To keep traffic to a minimum, people are asked to take public transport or walk where possible.

There is no parking at the venue so if you're planning to drive, use city centre car parks.

Dublin Bus, Irish Rail, DART and LUAS services will all bring you to within 15 minutes’ walk, or less, from the stadium.

You can find a list of Dublin Bus services that serve Croke Park here.
