U2 - Song For Someone

When a concert is cancelled, breaks usually a charge of slight confusion. Chaos is the most common notice in the newspaper.

Yesterday's U2 concert got cancelled for security reasons. Live Nation has issued the following press release;

Due to a security issue, did The Globe have to evacuated during the evening and on the advice of the police, we have no choice but to move the concert to the new date. Yesterday's concert by U2 moved thereby to today (Tuesday 22 September). All tickets to Yesterday's concert are valid for the concert on today (Tuesday).

We apologize for the inconvenience and hope for understanding from fans. Safety is our top priority.

For questions about the moving concert, contact Live Nation. All ticket issues refer to AXS.

U2 are an Irish rock band from Dublin. Formed in 1976, the group consists of Bono (vocals and guitar), the Edge (guitar, keyboards, and vocals), Adam Clayton (bass guitar), and Larry Mullen, Jr. (drums and percussion). U2's early sound was rooted in post-punk but eventually grew to incorporate influences from many genres of popular music. Throughout the group's musical pursuits, they have maintained a sound built on melodic instrumentals. Their lyrics, often embellished with spiritual imagery, focus on personal themes and sociopolitical concerns. 

The Innocence + Experience Tour (styled as iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE) is an ongoing worldwide concert tour by rock band U2. Staged in support of the band's 2014 album Songs of Innocence, the tour will visit arenas throughout 2015. It is U2's first time playing arenas since 2005–2006 on their Vertigo Tour. The Innocence + Experience Tour opened on 14 May 2015 in Vancouver, Canada, and will comprise two legs, one featuring concerts in North America from May through July, and a second featuring concerts in Europe from September through November. Shows were predominantly booked in pairs for each market, with a total of 76 concert dates scheduled.

Concerts are structured around a loose narrative of "innocence" passing into "experience", with a fixed set of songs for the first half of each show and a varying second half, separated by an intermission–a first for U2 concerts. The stage spans the length of the venue floor and is divided into three sections: a rectangular segment representing "innocence"; a smaller circular B-stage representing "experience"; and a connecting walkway to represent the transition between the two themes. A 96-foot-long double-sided video screen is suspended above and parallel to the walkway; the structure features an interior catwalk between the video screens, allowing the band members to perform amidst the video projections. For the tour, U2's sound system has been moved to the venue ceilings and arranged in an oval array in hopes of improving acoustics by evenly distributing sound throughout the arena.

According to Billboard, the North American leg of the tour grossed $76.2 million from 36 sold-out shows.

So lets play a tune with U2. Today's tune is from acclaimed director Vincent Haycock, Woody Harrelson and daughter Zoe star in a 7-minute short film for U2s "Song for Someone" from their thirteenth studio album Songs of Innocence.
