WPCNR ENTERTAINMENT NEWS. By John F. Bailey. September 24, 2012 UPDATED Sepetember 27, 2012 5 P.M. E.D.T.: The White Plains Department of Public Safety is working closely with Microsoft Corporation for Microsoft's free concert Saturday night presenting Lenny Kravitz. Wristbands allowing free admission to the concert may only be acquired beginning Friday at 10 A.M. at the new Microsoft store opening in The Westchester Mall that day. NeitherTickets or wristbands will not be available or sold for entry to the concert Saturday evening. The concert staging area is located on the lacrosse/soccer field closest to the Bryant Avenue entrance to White Plains High School. The concert is being held simultaneously with Columbus Day events adjacent to the concert area at the upper field behind White Plains High School at 7 P.M. Saturday night. Persons are advised that Admission to the open air concert by Mr Kravitz is limited exclusively to those who pick up wrist bands at the opening of the new Microsoft store in The Westchester the previous day, Friday, September 29, beginning at 10 A.M. The concert according to Supertintendent of Schools, Dr. Christopher Clouet is free, and Microsoft is paying the school district a rental fee for the field. It will not be held at the Loucks field, Clouet told WPCNR. Commissioner of Public Safety David Chong advised WPCNR Sunday the city is ready for the dual events: "Public Safety as well as all City Agencies have worked closely the past few weeks with the promoters of this event.
Public Safety has handled events this size and larger, examples would be New Years Eve, the Independence Day Fireworks, Saint Patrick's Day parade, and the Thanksgiving Turkey Bowl.
There will be a sufficient detail of Officers assigned to the event for Traffic and Crowd control. The events organizers have hired a large (private) security force that will work in coordination with Public Safety. Only persons with tickets (wrist bands) will be allowed into the concert and private security will manage the screening of concert attendees. We expect that the event will be a success and we also expect the concert attendees to be well behaved.
We would like to announce that traffic is anticipated to be heavy in the area around the High School before, during and after the concert. People can expect some traffic delays so if you do not have business in the area of the High School on Saturday evening, we recommend that you choose an alternative travel route.
The Columbus festival will also be taking place at the other end of the High School complex during the same times as the concert.
The Department of Public Safety will be well staffed and prepared for these events."
Note: The concert stage was being erected Thursday afternoon on the lacrosse field located adjacent the Bryant Avenue entrance to White Plains High School
