It was back to rock 'n' roll business last night in The Globen
Security around The Globen was stepped up last night as U2 resumed their run of Stockholm gigs.
The drama this time though was confined to the stage
“We're very, very pleased to be in Stockholm and actually playing a show,” said Bono after the chaps had launched into their set with the quadruple-whammy of ‘The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)’, ‘Gloria’, ‘Vertigo’ and ‘Iris’. “You might have heard, we had a security breach last night. I must say our audience handled it brilliantly, real cool...
The police were all over the place. I mean all over the place. Now that's not normal to want the police all over you but last night...
“We have a message to the police, ‘Thank you for being cautious and for taking care of our audience and the band.’ It was hard to cancel the show last night but it was the right thing to do… and guess what, we get to stay here for an extra night.”
Ticket-holders for Sunday’s gig, which was pulled after reports of an armed man bluffing his way into the venue, will be able to get their U2 fix tonight.
