Fans eager to show support for Aldean's first concert since Las Vegas tragedy
Singing along, Bobbi Parisotto is ready for the night ahead.
“I’m going with two of my best friends so I’m really excited,” she said.
She believes this is Tulsa’s opportunity to show their love and support for the singer.
“Oklahoma has had a few tragedies of our own so we know support,” she said. “We’re the heart of America. We know how to support. We know how to have hospitality and we know how to move on and still have a good time.”
Craig Murray is working security for the concert.
“There’s always a possibility of somebody carrying something and we don’t want to jeopardize, not only the other fans, but the artists or the facilities,” he said.
Murray is encouraging everyone to attend with a promise.
“We’ve always been on guard,” he said. “Always have a keen eye on things and there’s always been security, just for the presence of making sure everybody feels safe. Unfortunately, again with the things that have happened, we’ve had to step that up a little bit.”
Parisotto isn’t concerned.
“I frequent events here at the BOK and in Tulsa and I have brought my kids to many events out here in this area,” she said. “There’s always security.”
Listening to some of her favorite songs, she has faith her city will welcome Aldean with open arms.
TPD is not adding extra security but wants to reassure everyone the concert will be safe.
They do have officers standing by in case of any situation that may occur.
