TRANSLINK has scheduled extra trains to help Adele's Gold Coast fans get to and from her historic shows at the Gabba, in Brisbane, this weekend.

Gates for Saturday and Sunday nights' shows open at 5.30pm, with the concerts scheduled to start at 7.30pm and end by 10.30pm.

Head of TransLink Matt Longland said TransLink had doubled the number of public transport options it normally provided for events at The Gabba, with free public transport in Brisbane from noon.

Mr Longland said buses would be the primary source of transport to and from the venue on both nights, with a fleet of almost 400 dedicated shuttle buses and rail replacement buses to transport concertgoers from The Gabba back to Carindale, Chermside, Eight Mile Plains and Roma Street.

Gold Coast concertgoers travelling to and from the event by train are advised to use the shuttle buses to and from Roma Street train station.

The last train to the Coast after Saturday night's show departs Roma Street at 12.32am Sunday.

Two extra train services will run from Roma Street, stopping at all stations to Varsity Lakes, at 11.45pm Sunday and 12.15am Monday after the Sunday night show.

"We encourage concertgoers to use the shuttle service to travel to Roma St if they want to use these rail services," Mr Longland said.

"The shuttle services will run until the venue is clear.

"If concertgoers need to make connecting services to get home on Sunday night, they should plan ahead to make themselves aware of the last connecting service."

TransLink will remain in close contact with the venue to make sure Gold Coasters using shuttle buses back to Roma Street aren't left stranded.

Mr Longland asked patrons to exercise patience, particularly when leaving The Gabba after the event.

Taxis and ride-booking services will also be available, with designated pick up and drop-of zones.

Road closures will be in place and there will be no parking around the venue.

There are no public car parks at The Gabba and 15 minute parking limits apply across most of the 'Gabba Traffic Area' on event days.

Major road closures will be in place on Vulture and Stanley Streets, with partial road closures on Main Street and Wellington Road from 4pm until midnight on both event days.

Saturday night's Gabba show will be Adele's second-ever stadium show - her first was Tuesday night's triumphant performance for more than 60,000 fans at Domain Stadium in Perth.
