Metro Will Operate Extra Trains after Madonna Concert Tonight
Madonna brings her 2012 World Tour to St. Louis tonight (November 1) and the evening promises to be a late one. Metro Transit will provide extra service for fans after the concert ends late tonight. Representatives from the Scottrade Center tell Metro that Madonna is scheduled to go on stage between 10:15 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. tonight with her concert scheduled to last an hour and 45 minutes or so.
After the concert ends, MetroLink will operate extra trains. The last trains will leave downtown St. Louis for all destinations 30 minutes after the concert ends.
In addition, MetroLink maintenance work is being conducted on two sections of the track tonight. Trains will not operate between the College and Shiloh-Scott Stations from 8 p.m. until the end of service tonight. The St. Clair County Transit District will transport Red Line MetroLink customers by MetroBus from the College MetroLink Station to the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station. Westbound passengers should allow for 20-25 minute delays and eastbound passengers should expect 5 to 10 minute delays. Madonna concert goers are encouraged to parking at the College MetroLink Station or other nearby Park-Ride lots instead of Shiloh-Scott to avoid the delays caused by the ongoing track work.
Red Line passengers may experience up to 10 minute delays after 8 p.m. tonight due to track maintenance work between the Union Station, Grand and Central West End Stations. Blue Line trains will ONLY operate between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station and the Shrewsbury MetroLink Station.
