A U2 concert had to be evacuated in Sweden last night after a security threat.
The band were expected on stage at the Globe arena in Stockholm when the announcement was made that fans were to be evacuated.
Reports from Swedish site Expressen claimed police were searching for a specific person who was armed and threatening another member of the crowd.
A statement from the band said: “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.”
