Paul McCartney Concert Expected to Be Hot – Come Prepared
Carrier Dome officials are advising anyone who is planning on attending this Saturday's (9/23) Paul McCartney concert to bring water.
It's going to be hot Saturday. The National Weather Service is forecasting temperatures to reach the upper 80's to near 90°.
Peter Sala, Managing Director of the Carrier Dome says over 34,000 people are expected to attend the sold-out show. He says he's concerned about the warm temperatures and is preparing for it.
Several air conditioned areas are available for anyone suffering from heat exhaustion. In addition, medical staffing has been increased at the concert. Instead of the normal 2 ambulances they've made arrangements to add a third to be on stand-by.
Attendees are allowed to bring one sealed water bottle of any size into the dome to keep hydrated during the concert. The usual Dome restrictions apply to this show which still include no food or weapons.
Sir Paul is expected to take the stage at 8pm and run about 3 hours.
