ST. LOUIS – There are going to be a lot of Billy Joel fans at Busch Stadium Thursday night and there is also the possibility of protests in the area.

While crews covered the field with a temporary flooring, event organizers have been meeting with police to make sure a safety plan is in place.

Vice President of Event Services for Busch Stadium Vicki Bryant said they have a series of meetings before all big events but with protests still taking place around the area they had a few more meetings this time.

Bryant could not disclose specifics of the security plan but said she assures fans will have a safe and fun experience.

Bryant recommends getting to the concert early. Doors will open at 6 PM and the concert should start close to 8 PM because there is no opening act.
