At a U2 gig in Stockholm on Sunday night there was a supposed “threat against the venue”. The venue was subsequently evacuated due to this breaking news.
There were unconfirmed rumours of a bomb threat against the arena but it was then shortly changed to an unspecified security risk. Supposedly people outside were refused entry due a ‘ticket problem’, while those inside the arena were being asked to leave.
U2 later confirmed that the show had been cancelled through an on-stage spokesman, and will be rescheduled for this coming Tuesday. Live Nation the concert organisers didn’t comment on what specifically happened at the venue and simply said “safety is a priority”.
Bono recently spoke about the current refugee crisis in Europe and applauded the effort that has been made so far “We might truly be at a turning point for what Europe wants to be in the 21st century… This week, something incredible happened, and Europe isn’t the same as it was seven days ago.”
In relation to the cancelled U2 gig, someone later sent out a tweet showing how the arena looked before the cancellation. There were only people standing as all of the seats were empty. You can check out the tweet here.
