Imagine everyone’s experience at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester.  They are having the time of their life, singing loudly without a care in the world and within minutes everything changes.  A loud booming noise that is not intended to go with the performance interrupts everything.  The ear piercing screaming, bodies left and right rushing to an exit, crying, smoke everywhere overwhelms fans as they panic not knowing if they will make it out of the venue.  Sadly, this situation is not rare in today’s society.  Artists should cancel select concerts due to accessibility to music at home, the unpredictable violence, and the continuous large attacks.  If this takes place, a lot of our violence will be prevented.Recently there has been multiple large concert attacks affecting many.  Well known incidents within the past year include the Manchester attack, and the shooting in Las Vegas at the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival.  Many lives were taken at both of these, and even more were injured.  These attacks are becoming more frequent, each time it seems to become less of a shock and people are beginning to accept it and move on.  If this continues, large attacks will be happening a lot more often and become more acceptable.  Any desired society does not include the acceptance of immense attacks.Accessibility to music at home supports artists canceling select concerts.  Fans can watch whatever part of any performance they desire online (Discoll 3-4).  This is convenient and sometimes even better than the shows because of all the different personal preferences.  Someone might only want to see certain parts of a concert, and by staying at home and using internet access they can do that.  With online access, anyone can listen to or watch live performances whenever they want or however long they want.  With all of the violence in public events lately, it would be smarter to stream in the safety of your own home.  Online access would make this easy.  Some streaming is free for everyone, so accessing music at home will benefit everyone financially and ensure them safety.  Using free resources given to you to use at home for music, people can listen to music for uses other than entertainment, like pain therapy (Wilcox 15).The amount of unpredictable violence is growing, which does not support artists continuing their concerts.  Most people with mental illnesses are not violent (pbs).  When wanting to prevent violence, narrowing down the types of people or stereotyping would become a problem.  Many different types of people plan to or actually perform a mass shooting (pbs).  It is nearly impossible to pick out every different type of person and make sure all the security prevents anything they might try to attempt to do.  Concertgoers can do different bad acts before attending a show that will later affect them or those around them. (Ryan 1).  Someone can take an illegal drug before going to a concert, and that drug may later cause them to act a certain way they may not intend to, and possibly harm others.  Attendees can also create a plan to attack without using weapons that the security will pick up.Concert safety is a continuous issue and it is rapidly growing.  Different and new attacks are often blowing up on the media (Ryan 1).  The exposition of all the attacks may seem benefitional, but people can get different ideas to attack a large crowd.  So many people hear about the recent musical venue attacks, but venues still are hardly doing anything prevent all the violence.  Security at venues have been increasing, but not enough (Rys 2).  Many different shootings caused some venues to have complete bag checks (Szaroleta 1), yet we still often hear about many concert attacks.  There are still many attacks involving guns and bombs that the venue security did not prevent.  Concert attacks may not be stopped because it is nearly impossible to find a perfect security system that will prevent all attacks.  It is not possible to have one solution for the ongoing issue (pbs).  It is easy to think that artists should continue doing performances, but looking at the facts, they should cease from hosting them.  The violence is getting out of hand and there are other alternatives, most people can stream any music they want for free or for much less than the price of a show.  This issue has been going on for so long and it is becoming acceptable (Ryan 1).  All of the violence and huge risk is not worth the temporary fun.In conclusion, artists should cancel select concerts.  The access to music at home, unpredictable violence, and continuous attacks motivates the decision to abolish them.  If these shows are continued, imagine the increase in terrorist attacks.  It is understandable to think that everything would be resolved in an increase of security, but venues have been trying and clearly it is not enough.  Canceling concerts is a small price to pay for a safer society.
