Police in Orlando, Florida, will increase their presence at tonight's Jackson Browne concert at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts after receiving a possible threat.

Orlando Police said they will have an increased presence at the concert, the Orlando Sentinel reported. "Orlando just like Vegas", along with the date the Browne concert is supposed to be held, January 23, in red letters.

The move follows a Saturday "Resistance Fair" at the Unitarian Universalist Church in West Lafayette, Indiana, where members of the congregation were mobilizing voters ahead of the 2018 midterms. "Orlando just like [Las] Vegas".

The other banner targeted singer Jackson Browne for his opposition to Trump and dedication to progressive causes.

IN police are investigating who left the banners at the church.

Investigators believe whoever left the messages was referencing last year's mass shooting at a country music festival in Las Vegas.

Members arrived Sunday to discover that vandals had targeted the church, hanging two banners outside containing racial epithets and a number of slurs, authorities said.

"To promote that kind of hate and hang it at a church, that's".

"I'm so f-ing mad", he said. The Rock and Roll Hall of famer has been active in politics over the years, often performing for Democratic candidates for president.

However, Rev. Charlie Davis says the church does plan to hold a Wednesday evening service full of songs and talk of social justice, in hopes of using the vandalism to bring the community together.

Police officials added a statement reading: "These hateful racist banners have no place in our community and the West Lafayette Police Department is investigating this as a crime of harassment and felony intimidation".
