During Monday’s concert talk the singer Bono directly to the audience about yesterday’s incident.
– We are very pleased to be here in the city of Stockholm and actually do a show. You may have heard about the security problem yesterday. And I must say that our audience took it brilliantly, and the police as well. Police were everywhere. It’s usually not a good thing that the police are everywhere. But last night, it felt like a great thing. So we have a message for them: Thank you for being cautious. Thank you for taking care of the audience and the band. It was difficult to set up yesterday but it was the right thing to do. And guess what? We may be here an extra day, he said.
During the Monday evening, there have been substantial queues in to the concert, but it has still been good. The staff made the concert visitors prepared to get open bags on the way in.
– Actually a very normal procedure, neither more nor less. Very staff on site but the actual body of visits not function as on the concert anywhere, says Joacim Forsén , Nöjesbladet reviewer.
