U2, Coldplay Pull Plug On Concerts After Paris Attacks

11/14/2015 6:39 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

1114-main-u2-getty-01U2 cancelled a SRO concert in Paris scheduled for tonight in the wake of the deadly Paris attacks.

The cancellation appears to be a reaction to safety concerns. A rep for U2 said, "As a result of the ongoing state of emergency across France, the U2 Paris concert scheduled for 14th November will not be going ahead as planned."

1116-sub-coldplay-getty-01Ditto Coldplay, which cancelled a livestream concert  set for the day of the attacks in L.A.  Rather than expressing safety concerns, the band said the concert would not go on "out of respect for all the terrible events in Paris."

There were other cancellations as well.  The "Bridge of Spies" Paris premiere also did not go on.

Penelope Cruz Sorry, U2 ... It's My Stage Now!

1016_Penelope_Cruz_Javier_Bardem_U2_concert_photos_launch2Penelope Cruz is still hot enough to get U2 to play an entire concert ... JUST FOR HER -- at least that's what 24,000 people must have thought was happening in Barcelona.

Bono and co. played to a packed arena there this week, and when they made the mistake of inviting Penelope and hubby Javier Bardem on stage -- chica snapped pic after pic after pic as the band played on. She even had the lads pose for shots with Javier!

Imagine ... you pay through the nose to see 4 old Irish dudes rock out, and instead you end up with Penelope's bunny-ears-sporting-ass in your face.

Actually ...

U2 Cancels Concert To Avoid Sunday Bloody Sunday

breaking news

0921-u2-sweden-cancelled-apSecurity at a U2 concert in Sweden couldn't find what they were looking for ... a guy with a weapon -- so the band was forced to cancel their show.

Swedish authorities tell TMZ ... Stockholm's The Globen venue was evacuated Sunday night after security lost track of the guy who somehow got inside.

The band was regretful, saying, "The organizers apologize for the inconvenience caused and thank the audience for their understanding. Their safety is the priority."

The show will have a belated start Tuesday night.   

Chelsea Clinton U2 Will Get Searched Before Concert

8/1/2015 8:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0801-chelsea-clinton-splash-01Chelsea Clinton got wanded just like everyone else at the U2 concert in NYC.

The daughter of presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and hubby Marc Mezvinsky showed up Friday night at Madison Square Garden, and she flashed a faint smile as guards looked for contraband.

It's even more amusing because Chelsea was also there with Eve Hewson, Bono's daughter.

Everyone's created equal at U2 concerts.

U2 Tour Manager Dies in L.A. Hotel Room

5/27/2015 8:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


U2's longtime tour manager died early Wednesday morning in Los Angeles ... just as the band kicked off a week-long string of concerts in the city.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Dennis Sheehan was found unconscious in his room at the Sunset Marquis Hotel. We're told paramedics were called to Sheehan's hotel room around 5:30 AM for a reported cardiac arrest. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

Sheehan -- who was in his late 60s -- has been U2's tour manager for more than 30 years.

His death came just hours after the curtain went down on U2's first of 5 concerts at the Forum in L.A.

Sheehan's been all over the rock n' roll scene since the '70s. In addition to U2 ... he worked with rock legends like Led Zeppelin, Iggy Pop, Patti Smith and Lou Reed.

The Edge Too Close to the Edge Big Fall

5/15/2015 6:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Edge still can't find what he's looking for ... in this case, the rest of the stage.

U2 opened up its "Innocence + Experience" world tour Thursday in Vancouver. As the band played its iconic hit, "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" ... Edge went flying offstage.

After the show he posted he was fine, writing, "Didn't see the edge, I'm ok!! #U2ieTour." Looks like his arm is badly scraped.

The band is already operating at less than 100% -- Bono suffered a terrible bike accident in NYC last November that required two surgeries.

So we've gotten to the bottom of the picture we posted earlier today -- showing Tiger Woods with a woman at a U2 concert in October. The good news -- Tiger was with wife, Elin Nordegren. The bad news, while she was smiling away, he was texting someone.

Tiger Woods All Up In Tony Romo's Box

12/17/2009 2:40 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Super secret party guy Tiger Woods didn't just sneak away to hang out with cocktail waitresses -- he also came out of his cave to watch one of the biggest bands in the world ... from the vantage point of an NFL superstar's box seats.

TMZ has obtained photos of Tiger and Tony Romo hanging out in the quarterback's box at Cowboys Stadium during a U2 concert back in October.

The blonde woman next to Tiger doesn't appear to be his wife, Elin Nordegren -- which begs the question, do you think she knew where he was that night?

2/6/2009 7:39 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
When most people sing karaoke, it sounds worse than a Jessica Simpson concert -- but Eddie Vedder from Pearl Jam doing it to "Where the Streets Have No Name" in an Arizona bar ain't half bad.

He's already allegebedded Cameron Diaz and Britney Spears, but Criss Angel's got a new wingman in the most unlikely of people -- U2 frontman Bono!
