Stupid Person Climbs 100ft PA Tower At Avicii Gig In Belfast

Video has surfaced online of someone at the top of a 100ft high PA tower at the recent Tennents Vital gig in Belfast.

Let's be clear here - this is a ridiculous thing to do

It's highly dangerous and the guy in question put both himself and people below him in danger here.

A few questions spring to mind:

  • How easy was it for him to access the base of the tower to climb it?
  • Did any staff notice him climbing it?
  • What COULD staff actually do upon realising he was up there?
  • How does the risk change once people realise he's there and start reacting to him etc.?
  • What happened once he came down? Was he ejected?
  • Did anything change once they came down? Was the barrier line around the base of the tower enhanced? Were extra staff resources deployed to ensure others didn't climb it?
