Noise Restrictions are limits "they" put on the maximum sound volume that a concert can create. Typically these restrictions are A Weighted measurements and vary between a reasonable 105db to a silly "just above speech level" 95db.

Noise restrictions tend to come in two forms:

1) To protect the ears of the audience and

2) To appease people that bought houses next to a live music venue who then decide that even though they saved a bunch of money on their house by buying near a venue, they now want to have it quiet.

The cat and mouse game of finding a balance between the various interests can be quite complex as are the measurement techniques and often their are stiff fines imposed for exceed the limit.
