Parking for Def Leppard/Motley Crue Concert at the JMA Wireless Dome

Syracuse University’s Parking and Transportation Services (PTS) will make a temporary change to campus traffic patterns following the conclusion of the Def Leppard/ Motley Crue concert at the JMA Wireless Dome on Saturday, August 5, 2023.

Just as they did after the Red Hot Chili Peppers concert in April, as the concert ends, PTS and the Syracuse Police Department will close Comstock Avenue to all traffic except parking shuttles, which will travel between the College Place bus stop, the Colvin Street and Comstock Avenue lots, and the Skytop Lot.

The concert is anticipated to end between 10 and 11 p.m., and at that time, PTS will direct all traffic away from Comstock Avenue between Waverly Avenue and East Colvin Street. This will allow for the efficient exit and transportation of the concert attendees from the shuttle stop at College Place to their parking lots on South Campus.

The road will reopen as soon as the concert shuttles are cleared. Regular shuttles to South Campus and other campus shuttles will continue to run during and after the event, though arrivals and departures may be delayed due to the large amount of vehicular traffic in the University area.

Day-of Parking Information

Pay parking is available at several locations around campus, including:

  • Comstock (Permits only)/Colvin Lots: $25 per car, includes free shuttle service to and from College Place
  • Skytop Lot: $25 per car, includes free shuttle service to and from College Place

  • Accessible parking for those with a nationally-recognized handicap placard or license plate will be available at the Skytop Lot for $25per car, which includes free shuttle service to and from Gate A of the JMA Wireless Dome

Parking information for Syracuse University students, faculty, and staff with existing University parking permits: If you plan to attend the concert, your existing parking pass will be honored in University Avenue Garage, Comstock Avenue Garage, University Avenue North and South lots, and the Irving Ave. Hill lot, if space is available.

All parking is cashless. Customers may pay via credit card (including tap and pay), or through Google Pay or Apple Pay.
