The roads near the Olympic Sports Centre will be blocked off or restricted for three days starting from today to accommodate weekend concerts by K-pop group Seventeen.

The group’s two Macao concerts take place at the stadium at 6 pm on 20 and 21. 

The Transport Bureau (DSAT) announced yesterday that the Macao Estádio and Estádio/Centro Desportivo bus stops will not be operating from 10 am on 20 January until the following day. 

The bus stops at Jardim De Va Pou, Mei Keng Garden, and Jockey Clube, as well as Estádioas, won’t operate from 8 pm on 20 and 21 January. During this same period, the Light Rail Transit (LRT) Estádio station, as well as its accompanying pedestrian footbridge will also not be open. 

According to DSAT, the concert organisers are laying on free shuttle buses for fans, running between Pak Kok Road, the Border Gate, as well as Hengqin Port, from 8:30 pm during the two nights of the concert. 

Founded eight years ago, Seventeen is a highly popular Korean boy band whose songs have topped various charts worldwide. The group’s 2015 recording 17 Carat was the longest-charting K-pop album in the US that year.
