Security advice for Robbie Williams Coventry Ricoh Arena gig after terrorist attack

Emily Fish 8th Jun, 2017

ROBBIE Williams’ fans have been issued with security advice ahead of his Ricoh Arena concert in the wake of the Manchester terrorist attack.

The former Take That singer will perform his Heavy Entertainment Show on Tuesday, June 13 – and in light of recent terrorist incidents around the UK, the venue has reviewed its security measures.

Gates open at 4.30pm and music fans are being advised to arrive at the venue in good time with only essential items to allow for searches to take place.

Andy Gibb, managing director at the Ricoh Arena, said: “We want everyone to enjoy their time with us at the Ricoh Arena during the Robbie Williams Concert.

“We have a range of security measures in place and they have all been reviewed following the recent incidents around the country.

“We are sure that everybody will have a fantastic time on the night but we want everybody to feel as safe as possible whilst they are with us, and we would ask that visitors help us to help them by following the venue’s advice.”

The Ricoh Arena’s advice includes:

· Do not bring bags to the venue, this will delay entry because of the search regime in place.

· Do not queue before 10am on the day of the event, we will not be able to provide facilities on site and will be asking people to leave if they do come to site.

· Do not bring liquids or food and drink as they will not be permitted into the venue.

· Listen to messages from stewards and the public address system.

· Co-operate with safety and security teams who are there to help you.

· Arrive in good time, gates open at 4.30pm, allowing for search and screening as necessary.

· Report anything you are concerned about to the safety & security teams.
