U2 Tour Manager Dennis Sheehan Dies in Los Angeles
There is straight up shock in the U2 camp today.
Dennis Sheehan had been the band’s Tour Manager for 30 years. This morning, he was found dead in his Los Angeles hotel room, just hours after U2 had opened their 5-night stand at The Forum.
Drummer Larry Mullen Jr’s father had recently passed away. So, the burden on the band must be extreme.
Quotes from the U2 camp:
-“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 this moment, there is no postponement of the Innocence & Experience Tour.
