Heads up, concert lovers! If you want to attend one of the shows on the Bangor waterfront this summer, there are some new rules.

Waterfront Concerts on Tuesday announced that it would adopt a "clear bag" policy like those used at many other venues and all NFL stadiums.

Here are the bags that are allowed under the new policy:

  • Bags that are clear (see through) plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12” x 6” x 12”
  • One-gallon clear (see through) plastic freezer bag or similar
  • Small clutch bags, not to exceed 8” x 5” x 2” (approximately the size of a hand), with or without a handle or strap, may be carried into the venue along with one of the clear bag options

In a Facebook post, Waterfront Concerts said the change was due to "recent requests from tour security for increased fan screening."

The post also advises that bags not in compliance will not be stored and must be returned to the patron’s vehicle.

So, be aware of the new rules, and enjoy the show!
