Waterfront Concerts Enacts New “Clear Bag” Policy To Keep Portland and Bangor Venues Safer
Call it a changing of the times. Prior to shows in both Bangor and Portland last night, Waterfront Concerts took to social media to remind concert-goers of alterations to their bag policy. Those alterations were at the request of several of the major tours passing through the venues based on nationwide security being enhanced. According to Waterfront Concerts, their new clear bag policy is the same that any person would encounter at an NFL stadium.
Waterfront Concerts specifies that anyone showing up to the venue with a bag that does not follow these guidelines will be asked to return the bag to their vehicle or store it on their own. Waterfront Concerts will not provide storage facilities. Waterfront Concerts holds shows on the Bangor waterfront as well as the Maine State Pier on Portland's waterfront.
