U2 tour manager dies on the road

Long time U2 tour manager Dennis Sheehan has died at the age of 69.

Sheehan were about to perform a series of concerts in Los Angeles, when he was found unconscious in his room at the Sunset Marquis Hotel after a reported cardiac arrest.

Sheehan had worked with U2 for over 30 years, starting at the age of 19, and is a real legend in the industry. His other clients included Led Zeppelin, Iggy Pop and Patti Smith.

“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,” U2 frontman Bono said in a statement.

“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,” added Arthur Fogel, CEO of Global Touring and Chairman of Global Music at Live Nation.

U2's show at the Roxy tonight is currently set to go ahead as planned.
