U2 Cancels St Louis Concert Amid Protests Fears, Fans React

U2 cancels St. Louis show

Protests in St. Louis have so far resulted in 11 police officer injuries and at least 32 arrests. She said she was protesting because doing nothing makes someone complicit in the brutalization of others.

Hundreds protested Friday. They marched for hours in mostly peaceful demonstrations, until a broken window at the mayor's home and escalating tensions led riot-gear-clad officers to lob tear gas to disperse the crowds.

U2's Saturday night concert at St. Louis' Dome at America's Center has been canceled due to the protests now taking place in the city following the acquittal of a police officer who shot and killed a black driver.

The Ed Sheeran concert originally scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Sunday at Scottrade Center in St. Louis has been canceled due to security concerns.
