A Boost in Concert Security

Written by

Eagles Of Death MetalAmidst the tragic Paris attacks, the live events community is weighing in on the possible effects on touring and public performances. We recently reported on the incredible growth in live events, but it is now believed by many promoters that the attacks will “have a tangible effect” on these sorts of events.

Fan security is foremost on everyone’s mind following the shootings at the Bataclan, and Staples Center President Lee Zeidman is already making improvements and bumped up security outside of Justin Bieber’s concert in L.A. Cory Meredith, founder of security and crowd management firm StaffPro agrees that “Our industry must realize incidents like this can happen to any of us at any time at any event” and is planning future budget changes to implement the best possible industry practices.

Many bands have cancelled their tour dates and live performances, and France has closed off its borders, forcing more cancellations. However, Jam Productions owner Jerry Mickelson deeply believes that fans should still follow their love for music and that “We must not let any of these horrific acts change the way we live our lives. We must not live in fear”.
