Busch Stadium Ramps Up Security For Billy Joel Show

ST. LOUIS (CelebrityAccess) — While other artists, including U2 and Ed Sheeran canceled shows in St. Louis this past weekend due to security concerns about protests following a not guilty verdict for former police officer Jason Stockley this week, Billy Joel is moving ahead with his concert at Busch Stadium on Thursday night.

While protests are still underway in the city, Busch Stadium officials say the venue will be operating under heightened security with plans in place to address various eventualities.

According to Fox News, stadium officials have been in frequent contact with regional law enforcement and are taking steps to ensure a safe event.

Stadium officials declined to comment on specifics of the security precautions.
