Chiangrai Times – Lady Gaga was greeted by hundreds of her enthusiastic fans on arrival in Bangkok. The pop singer landed in the Thai capital’s Don Muang airport on Wednesday (May 23) for the latest leg of her “Born This Way Ball Tour”.
Pol Maj-General Anant Srihiran said there were plans to cover everything from audience safety and traffic management to prevention of accidents, terror?ism and crime. He said the area of operations had been divided into three zones.
The inner zone of Rajamangala Stadium would see close dealings between police and the concert organizers to enforce tight security. Traffic barri?ers would secure routes for VIPs, while concert-goers would be subjected to thor?ough body searches for explosives or weapons.
Police would man a middle zone within the sports complex to inspect vehicles and incoming crowds, with officers positioned high up to check for long-range attacks.
Outside the complex, offi?cers will man several check points and be on the lookout for trajectory weapons, Anant said.
Closed-circuit cameras are also being positioned in the area.
Anant said first-aid equip?ment plus emergency vehicles and staff would be on standby at the concert.
