What I like about pop music, and why I'm still attracted to it, is that in the end it becomes our folk music.-- Bono, 2004

Long Time Tour Manager Dennis Sheehan Dies

@U2

It is a very sad day in the U2 family as we all mourn the passing of Dennis Sheehan, U2's tour manager for 30 years. As reported by several news outlets, Sheehan died earlier this morning in his hotel room in Los Angeles. The band is very much in shock at the moment. Bono and Live Nation's Arthur Fogel released brief statements via U2.com:

-"We've lost a family member, we're still taking it in. He wasn't just a legend in the music business, he was a legend in our band. He is irreplaceable." Bono

-"With profound sadness we confirm that Dennis Sheehan, U2's longstanding tour manager and dear friend to us all, has passed away overnight. Our heartfelt sympathy is with his wonderful family." Arthur Fogel

As of right now, the tour will continue as scheduled. If anything changes, we'll let you know.
