The explosion in Manchester sent ripples around the world, and authorities in Grand Prairie on Monday opted to increase the police presence at Verizon Theatre, as John Legend was in town for a show. Lt. Anthony Hogan said, despite zero intelligence of a similar attack, officials felt compelled to beef up security as a precaution.
“I think it’s kind of a sad commentary on the world we live in these days,” said Kaylee Criswell. “It’s hard to go somewhere you think is going to be fun.”
The AAC posted their emergency plan online, saying that personnel have been trained to assist in an emergency situation, and both visual and audible alarms are located inside of the building.
However, there has been no specific word about changes to security at the American Airlines Center. The venue’s management issued a statement on Tuesday that said, “We are currently reviewing security plans for the concert tonight and will make any adjustments that are deemed necessary after that review. Per our policy, we do not publicly discuss specific details of our security protocols.”
