Watch Michael Chapman’s lockdown session for Uncut

Last night’s (September 20) U2 concert in Stockholm has been evacuated following a security threat. A statement on the band’s website details a “security breach,” and explains that the lack of resolution means that tonight’s concert has been postponed until September 22. All tickets remain valid.

Local media reported that police were searching for a man who entered the Ericsson Globe Arena carrying a gun. Reports of a bomb have been dismissed.

Concert organisers Live Nation are yet to comment on the circumstances surrounding the cancellation, simply stating that “safety is a priority” from the venue’s stage.
