                 In the international music industry, Jerry Mele’s name is synonymous with safe concerts.

                 fan-friendly security methods for the entertainment industry, many of which have become
                 industry standards. This is a rare first hand account of the exciting, humorous, sometimes

  Uncle Jerry’s legacy continues to influence U2 and their fan base… for without his care and concern for everyone, U2s’
