Australia - POLICE will have a "strong" presence at next month's Guns 'N' Roses concert at the Perth Motorplex in Kwinana Beach but say they expect no problems like last month's bikie brawl.
The complex management, police, the Town of Kwinana and the promoter will finalise security plans in the coming days for the concert on December 11, which is expected to draw up to 15,000 people.
Peel District Office Inspector Peter Hatch said police were working closely with all parties to plan for the event.
"There will be a strong police presence at the concert to deter any potential offending or antisocial behaviour," he said.
"However, for operational reasons it is not proposed to elaborate on the numbers of police attending or the areas they will be drawn from."
A brawl between rival gangs at a motorcycle drag event last month left three Finks gang members in hospital.
Motorplex general manager Kevin Prendergast said the "level" of the incident was not yet known but concert-goers should feel safe at the complex.
