Also here's a link to the Antwerp tramway network: Antwerpen tramstad (pdf)
The concert hall is at station Sport.
If you fancy some shopping before the concert just take tram 3 direction Zwijndrecht and get of at Opera.
You'll walk straight up to the Meir. The largest shopping street of Belgium Wikipedia - Antwerp Meir

Hope to be of some help. Greetings from Belgium  :hithere:
Thank you for that! My mother and my aunt are driving with me, because they want to take the opportunity to walk through the city and do some shopping and this helps!
If you're early enough I can really suggest to use the P+R. There will be plenty of space, the parking is free and public transport is free with your concert ticket!
we can't do that, since my aunt and mother are not going to the concert and they speak german only so they can't figure out how to take tram tickets :P we will just park in the city and pay for it.

There are ticket vending machines and German is our third official language.

So you're probably arriving in Antwerp on the E313/A13 right?
You can try around Wijnegem Shopping Center and take Tram 5 but if you're early enough I really suggest you use one of the paid parking lots around the venue. It'll save you lots of time. If you are really early (usually till around 2 in the afternoon) you can also try your luck and find a free parking spot in the Slachthuislaan.
Here's a little overview:

The red line is where you'll have most chance for a parking spot and a place where you'll not be fined. There are also a couple of paid (€ 5) parking lots in that area. The large blue roof is the venue itself.
Hope to be of some help  ;)

I'll be pretty late at the venue. Bringing my 5 year old daughter, who's also a Katycat, and my wife.
Will probably be around 6.30 since long waiting isn't exactly fun for a 5yr old  ;)
If I can hold her away for that long at least. She's pretty excited about it ;D

Train to (pre)metro transfer was asked in a PM and I checked current situation out. Astrid station has closed entrances due to construction works and there is a shorter route to Diamant station.

Just in case someone else is asking the same question:

Long distance intercity trains should arrive at -2.


The signs at the escalators tells that moving up takes you closer to the metro.


At the end of the escalators, you should see this on the left.


Follow the triangle pointing to.


Escalator to the (pre)metro.


At the end of this escalator, turn right.


It looks there like this.


Go to the escalator on the right hand side.


The signs on the walls looks like this.

2 and 6 is going to the Sportpaleis from this station (Diamant).

In the train station that there are stairs for every escalator. There are also elevators.
