Bankers Life Fieldhouse ups security after Manchester explosion

May 23, 2017

One of Indiana's top concert venues is stepping up security measures following a suicide bombing at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, that killed 22 people.

Pacers Sports & Entertainment President Rick Fuson issued a written statement Tuesday saying Bankers Life Fieldhouse immediately upgraded security standards visible to the public and behind the scenes.

Fuson said no credible threat has been made to the downtown Indianapolis venue, but he reminded people attending events there to remain cognizant of their surroundings and to report any suspicious activity to staff or law enforcement.

Bankers Life Fieldhouse is the home of the NBA's Indiana Pacers and the WNBA's Indiana Fever, and is set to host concerts this year by Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry and other top acts.

Grande performed at the venue March 11 in a concert that sold almost 11,000 tickets.
