ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

After a weekend of cancellations over downtown protests, organizers of upcoming events seem determined to go on as scheduled.

"Everything is proceeding as planned at this time," according to a statement from Live Nation in regards to the Billy Joel concert on Thursday at Busch Stadium.

On Tuesday, the stage could be seen being built inside the ballpark. The Cardinals also released the following statement:

"Preparations are well underway to get ready for the Billy Joel concert on Thursday.   Our security team has been in frequent communication with law enforcement to ensure we take every step necessary to assure the safety of concert goers."

The Blues also confirmed the team's first pre-season game will be played at Scottrade Center on Wednesday night. The club says they have a plan in place that utilizes St. Louis police as well as private security.

Also, officials at the Dome at America's Center said as far as they know the weekend Joyce Meyer Women's Conference has not been canceled.

All of these events will draw thousands to downtown.

Last weekend, two concerts in St. Louis were canceled over security concerns, Ed Sheeran at Scottrade and U2 at the Dome.
