    hey i am going there for the GNR concert this can one travel back and forth from the venue to any hotel in hebbal?...are taxis/autos available from bhartiya city at night?

    1. Getting an auto from your hotel to the venue and from there to your hotel won't be a problem. After the concert we did not face any problem getting an auto. But i would advise you not to linger around the venue for too long once the gig is over.
