Dennis Sheehan, U2’s longtime tour manager, has died, Arthur Fogel, Live Nation’s CEO of global touring, confirmed on the band’s website. Details regarding the nature of his death are not currently available, although Fogel specified that he “passed away overnight.”
“We’ve lost a family member, we’re still taking it in,” Bono said in a statement. “He wasn’t just a legend in the music business, he was a legend in our band. He is irreplaceable.”
As of early Wednesday afternoon, U2 is still scheduled to play a show at The Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles this evening.
