U2 cancels concert after Bono loses his voice

The band had only performed a handful of songs when they were forced to end the show


U2 was forced to cancel a show in Berlin after Bono lost his voice.

The lead singer was performing on-stage when his voice suddenly went.

The 58-year-old told the crowd: “”I think we can’t go on. It’s not right for you.”

Fans were told that there would be a short break in the performance, but were later informed that the concert would not be continuing.

The band promised to reschedule the gig as Bono said on-stage: “We’ll play another show some other time” after apologising to fans.

U2 has also released a statement that says: “We’re so sorry for tonight’s cancellation.  Bono was in great form and great voice prior to the show and we were all looking forward to the second night in Berlin, but after a few songs, he suffered a complete loss of voice.”

“We don’t know what has happened and we’re taking medical advice. As always, we appreciate our audience’s understanding and all our fans’ support in Berlin and those who travelled from afar. We will update you very soon.”

The statement was signed off: “Adam, Larry and Edge.”

Some fans stated that Bono mentioned the smoke machines were impacting his voice and one said that he was “visibly distressed.”
