Up to 50 police and security officers work the concerts, with some in plain clothes.

"When you hear of an event occurring and there are injuries or deaths that's what concerns me the most", said Lt. Brent Mull, with the Columbus Police Divison of Homeland Security.

Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens is also expecting to draw huge crowds throughout the summer by housing musical acts like U2 in June and sporting events like El Clasico, an worldwide soccer match between Barcelona and Madrid, in late July.

"We are now treating this as a terrorist incident until we have further information", Hopkins said.

Creeger says his security personnel also watches well beyond the gates of the event, as numerous soft-target bombings happen just outside the perimeter of the venue, like in yesterday's attack at Manchester Arena. Singapore, which hosts a security summit between June 2-4 bringing together Asia-Pacific defence and military chiefs, made amendments to the Public Order Act last month.

On Monday night, Manchester Arena was hit by an explosion during the concert by pop star Ariana Grande. Besides baggage inspection, there will be metal detectors, it said in a statement, adding it was also planning to introduce search dogs for any suspicious items. Police say they are treating as a terrorist attack.

The International Cricket Council said security for the ICC Champions Trophy next month and the ICC Women's World Cup, both in Britain, was its "highest priority". Waddell said at least three security guards patrol the arena grounds around the clock. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said the government was working closely with other countries on strategy.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security says although there is no specific threat against music venues in the U.S., police are on heightened alert. SM investments Corp, whose Mall of Asia Arena in the Philippine capital will host Ariana Grande in August, said it would take all precautions.
