News & Notes
In the midst of their five-night string of performances at The Forum in Los Angeles, U2’s tour manager died of cardiac arrest at the Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood.
Dennis Sheehan, 68, had been managing U2’s tours for over thirty years, and in a statement on their website, frontman Bono remarked that Sheehan was “a family member…a legend in our band”.
Currently, the death has yet to impact any of the dates on U2’s Innocence + Experience tour, including the sold out Boston dates on July 10th, 11th, 14th, and 15th.
Stay tuned to the band’s official website and Twitter accounts for any updates and potential impacts on future tour dates due to the tragedy.
