Anyone who went to a Buffalo Bills game last season remembers that parking around Highmark Stadium was a massive headache. Closed roads and long lines of traffic left fans who descended on Orchard Park confused and stressed about where to go and what to do. 

Now, we’re about to get a dose of déjà vu when thousands of country music lovers make the pilgrimage to the stadium once again for the Luke Combs concert on Friday and Saturday night.

The superstar is coming to town for his Growin' Up and Gettin' Old Tour, bringing The Avett Brothers, Charles Wesley Goodwin, Hailey Witters, and The Wilder Blue with him Friday, as well as Jordan Davis, Mitchell Tenpenny, Drew Parker, and Colby Acuff on Saturday.  

Don’t let potential traffic problems get “the best of you” (sorry, we couldn’t resist), and heed this warning to avoid hiccups that could cause a major delay in your travel plans.

The majority of GPS apps and devices will direct you to Abbot Road to get to Highmark Stadium. However, because a large portion of Abbott (both north and southbound) will be closed beginning 2pm on Friday and noon on Saturday, drivers who follow their GPS directions will most likely be rerouted. 

To avoid long arrival delays and frustrating traffic, we recommended ditching the GPS and use the following routes instead to get to your prospective parking lots:

Although there’s bound to be lots of traffic around Highmark Stadium regardless of whether you use a GPS or not, hopefully these directions can get you to your Luke Combs tailgate faster and easier, so you won’t have to turn around and figure out another way there.

Luke Combs is ready to join the ranks of country artists who have opened their own bars in Nashville's Broadway district. The honky-tonk will be called Category 10, playing off of his debut single "Hurricane." Although true hurricanes are categorized no higher than a Category 5, Combs opted to double the intensity with a 10 ranking. It's a nod to his career, really.

Category 10 will be anything but small: The bar will be the largest entertainment venue on the strip, featuring the area's biggest dance floor and rooftop. Combs is also including more intimate spaces to accommodate young talented singers and songwriters.
