Concert organizer Mojo warned visitors in advance about a possible late end time of the show. This was because Madonna herself decides what time she enters the stage. For example, the second concert of her Celebration Tour started not an hour and a half, but only an hour later than planned. This led to problems for fans who relied on public transport. Many had to leave the concert early to catch the last train, and on Saturday some fans even missed the last part of the performance, which ended around 00.10:XNUMX am.
The Dutch Railways (NS) responded to questions about extra late trains by stating that such adjustments cannot be arranged at short notice. The NS emphasized that they are willing to think creatively, but that they cannot take uncertainty about the end time of a concert into account.
There was also a challenge for visitors who took a taxi to the Ziggo Dome. Due to the high demand for taxis, high prices were sometimes charged. There are several taxi stands near the Ziggo Dome, such as behind Endemol, behind the AFAS Live at De Corridor and at Bijlmer Arena station.
Another interesting aspect is the impact on the local taxi market. The increased demand for taxis after the concert led to higher fares. While this is a common practice in many cities, it raises questions about regulation and fair pricing during times of high demand.
The Ziggo Dome is easily accessible by public transport, located near two train stations: Amsterdam Bijlmer ArenA and Duivendrecht, both within walking distance. Both intercity trains and sprinters stop from various directions, and the Strandvliet and Bijlmer ArenA metro stations are also nearby.
