Just since the eighties have air shows been more highly regulated, not so much for pilot safety, but for audience safety.
Globally, during that time, there were some horrific crashes that killed and injured many attendees.
I remember vividly the videos from those crashes.
I have experienced horror on that scale, but seeing people flying through the air and others enveloped in flames caused very intense feelings for me.
