Live Nation to enhance venue security in response to Paris attacks
In light of last week’s terror attacks in Paris, Live Nation has stepped in to announce alterations to event security, effective immediately. The concert promoter wrote in a statement, “The safety and security of our shows, fans and venues continues to be our highest priority. 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.”
While heightened security may be helpful to an extent, it is nearly impossible to prevent a large scale massacre from occurring. Red Bull Music Academy, which was to feature Jean Michel Jarre, Laurent Garnier, and others, has responded by postponing all public shows until November 19 at the earliest.
Meanwhile, Le Bataclan has released its first statement on Facebook:
No words is enough to express the magnitude of our grief.
Our thoughts are with the victims, the injured and their families.
You are many to want you collect the bataclan, unfortunately the authorities have still need to work on the spot. We will keep you informed as soon as it is possible to you gather in front of the room.
We thank you for your support which affects us deeply.
