U2 Concert Evacuated and Cancelled in Sweden over Security Breach
Things have not been all that great for U2's live shows as of late. The group's tour manager recently passed away, their guitarist fell off the stage and now a show was cancelled due to a "security breach."

As the Associated Press reports, thousands of fans were evacuated from a U2 show in Stockholm, Sweden, on Sunday night (September 20). According to reports, a man wasn't properly searched at the security check and was able to enter the arena with a gun.

Many believe that the man was an off-duty police officer who was still carrying his gun. That said, Swedish police officers aren't allowed to carry their weapons while off duty.

"The organizers apologize for the inconvenience caused and thank the audience for their understanding," a statement read on the U2 website. "Their safety is the priority."
 
Luckily for fans, the concert is now set to take place Tuesday night.
