U2 Cancels St Louis Concert Amid Protests Fears, Fans React

17 September 2017, 01:55 | Elsie Buchanan

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.

Owners of the latter three don't have to pay more because the price of their AppleCare plans will remain the same. Apple is apparently going all out this year - not as much in terms of new features as it is with the price hikes.

U2 front man Bono said later on Saturday that he was "deeply saddened" by the St. Louis protests.

Sheeran's representatives cited "safety of the fans" and said he would "look forward to returning to St. Louis as soon as Ed's schedule will allow in 2018".

U2 says they will cancel more shows if police are incapable of doing their job. There were reports that the concert venue could become a target of protesters on Saturday night.

U2 was the first of three high-profile entertainment acts to cancel shows in St. Louis this weekend.

"We can not in good conscience risk our fans' safety by proceeding with tonight's concert", the statement read.

The Irish rock band U2 has canceled its Saturday night concert in St. Louis after police told concert organizers that they couldn't provide a typical level of security because of protests. We have also been informed that local crowd security personnel would not be at full capacity.
