Thousands of people will be heading to Carrow Road to see Sir Elton John perform his many hits.

But while Rocket Man revellers will be brimming with excitement, drivers in the city will face congestion and road closures.

Police have warned that there will be rolling road closures around Carrow Road stadium from 4pm.

Drivers have been asked to prepare in advance if travelling in the area and find alternative routes.

In a tweet, Norfolk police said: "Follow the Yellow Brick Road to Norwich if you're going to see Elton John tonight.

"Allow yourself time to arrive safely, pass security and enjoy the show.

"Find alternate routes or you may have to sacrifice some time."
