The deadly bombing in Manchester is having a ripple effect right here at home. Security at public venues will now be stepped up.

There's a Newark police car stationed at one of the entrances to the Prudential Center, which holds many sold out shows, similar to the Manchester Arena in England.

At the Prudential Center, nearly 19,000 people normally attend concerts at the venue. It is unclear if there will be increased security at the next show where the artist known as the Weeknd will play on June 4.

But New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, appearing on a radio show Monday night said, "We are never going to be the same."

The U.S. Homeland Department of Security says they have no information to indicate a specific credible threat to music venues in the U.S. However, the public may experience increased security in and around public places and events
