When one attends the concert of a favorite artist or band, the thought of violence at the venue probably doesn't rank as a concern. Sadly, popular music performances have never been immune to violent behaviors, and while reporting mechanisms are imperfect, it would be difficult to ignore the apparent increase in violent incidents at concerts in recent years. In the interest of focus and the requirements of this project, I have elected to focus on rock concerts; the growing popularity of rap/hip-hop and increase in associated high-profile violent incidents suggests that it merits a dedicated investigation.
