(Washington, PA) — A Pittsburgh area concert featuring Rick Ross, Lil Uzi Vert, and other artists to be held on June 10, 2017 is beefing up security after the tragedy yesterday at a concert in Manchester, England, in which 22 were killed and more than 50 injured in a terrorist attack carried out by by a suicide bomber. British authorities said the bombing at an Ariana Grande concert was the deadliest terror attack on British soil in more than a decade.

Organizers of the event at the Wild Things Park (formerly CONSOL Energy Park) in Washington PA, are taking no chances as they plan for the safety of thousands of enthusiastic young people who will come to hear the world-class artists. More than 5,000 people attend the hip hop concert annually.

Security at the Rick Ross concert in PA will be tripled and dozens of metal detectors will be installed at entrances to the stadium. Concert planners will work closely with local law enforcement groups and police for added protection. The Wild Things Park event will kick off the summer concert season for the Pittsburgh suburbs. Pittsburgh is only 30 miles away from from Washington PA. Over a thousand Pittsburgh residents have already registered to attend the hip hop concert.

Stuart Williams, organizer of the event and an owner of the Washington Wild Things baseball team, said, ”The health and well being of those attending the upcoming concert is our number one priority. We are taking every step possible to provide the highest degree of safety and state of the art security to ensure a fun and exciting night.”
