In the wake of multiple terrorist attacks in Paris, live music promoters large and small are promising to step up security. But most are remaining vague about exactly what that means or how it will effect concert goers.
In the wake of the attack on the Bataclan Theatre in Paris, promoter Live Nation has announced that they plan to increase security at their venues worldwide.
What form that additional security might take, or how it might affect shows remains to be seen. For obvious reasons, the company was reluctant to disclose the nature of any additional security precautions they are implementing.
The statement, released to the New York Times, said:
“The safety and security of our shows, fans and venues continues to be our highest priority,” Live Nation said in a statement released through the New York Times, “Due to the recent events in Paris and in an abundance of caution we have implemented heightened security procedures globally. However, because of the sensitive nature of these protocols, we cannot elaborate further on the specific details.”
