U2 reschedule Stockholm show after 'security breach'

U2 have been forced to reschedule a gig in Stockholm after it was evacuated over security fears.

The band were due to play in the Swedish city on Sunday (September 20) at the Ericsson Globe.

However, the iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE Tour show was pulled 15 minutes before U2's stage time due to a security breach, with police reported to have been searching for an individual.

U2 have confirmed that the show has been moved to Tuesday (September 22) after it failed to resume.

They said in a statement on the night: "Due to a security breach, Stockholm's The Globen evacuated the audience from the building this evening.

"As the breach has not been resolved quickly and as audience safety is paramount, the police have advised The Globen and Live Nation that they have no option but to postpone tonight's show, to a rescheduled date of Tuesday 22nd September.

"All tickets from Sunday 20th September are valid for Tuesday 22nd September. The organisers apologise for the inconvenience caused and thank the audience for their understanding. Their safety is the priority."
