Got tickets for the Dropkick Murphy's concert towards the end of February, what's security screening like there? Pat downs, wands?

Just need to know if I need to leave the knife and gun in the car. I'm fine with ankle carrying if it gets me past security.

Interested as I am going as well.  

1st time for DM, been getting more into 'Irish' music the last couple of years.  Big fan of Gaelic Storm and they are playing after Iowa Wild Hockey game on 3/18.  Will be there as well.

I know last time I was at Wells Fargo they were wanding people, but didn't go below the waist, so ankle carry was not an issue.

We should try and meet up at DKM.

I would expect rather diligent security based on previous events. I have not been to a concert there since the shooting, so no up-to-date knowledge.

Note that the venue had heightened security for this ball too.

Yeah, they said they had patdowns, just not sure if anyone on here knows how thorough they are on patdowns.

Huh, I didn't know they were coming.  That would be a fun show.

Friday February 24th. Plenty of time to get a ticket still.

@timthemedic

My dad got me the tickets for me and him to go, he's fighting the flu, so he might not be able to go. Text me if you might be free to go.

7 Flags usually employs dudes that wear tactical belts with empty holsters for security, and typically a few uniformed officers as well depending on venue type. 

Can't remember patdowns, I was there last in July.

Not that I remember. I was last there for a metal concert, if that matters.

I'm almost certain I had a folder in my pocket that went unnoticed.

There was one shirt security dude that walked out from the door.  He did a very perfunctory wand from mid thigh to armpit.  

They were rushing due to the very long line out the door most way through the 1st opening act.  Definitely could have ankle carried.  I had a folder in my boot and most of a bottle of whiskey in my coat.
