LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Rupp Arena announced a stricter security policy Monday for the upcoming concert with Grammy Award-winning pop superstar Ariana Grande.
Grande, one of the best-selling artists in popular music, is set to bring her Sweetener World Tour to Rupp on Sunday, Nov. 17.
But if you plan on attending, don’t plan on bringing a bag unless you can see right through it.
“In order to provide the smoothest entry and safest experience for fans attending the concert, the tour has announced a clear-bag policy, among other security measures for the show,” according to a news release.
While the statement doesn’t mention it, the policy follows by a couple years the May 22, 2017, Grande concert in Manchester, England, that was attacked by a suicide bomber. Twenty-two people were killed.
The bags also cannot exceed 12-by-6-by-12 inches.
