U2's concert in Stockholm has been abruptly cancelled amid security concerts at the venue.

The Globe Theatre was evacuated around 8PM tonight, with no reason given to fans beyond vague comments from security staff about a possible "threat".

The Stockholm concerts were to be the first in U2's Experience Tour, which began on Wednesday of last week at the venue.

The schedule has U2 to play another night in Sweden before they head to Berlin, Germany for the next leg of the tour. The tour ends in Dublin on November 28th, where U2 will play a four-night beginning on the 23rd.

There's been no official report or reason given for the security threat, however it's understood that the concert has been rescheduled for Tuesday. It's not yet known if this will affect the Dublin dates.

Fans took to social media regarding the concert's cancellation in Stockholm.






UPDATE: It's now been confirmed that the concert has been rescheduled to Tuesday, September 22nd. A statement posted on U2's site reads as follows:

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 organizers apologize for the inconvenience caused and thank the audience for their understanding. Their safety is the priority.
