U2 concert in Stockholm evacuated due to security breach

Reports are emerging of chaos at U2’s Stockholm show at the Globe Arena this evening (September 20), with the venue having been evacuated due to a security threat, and police searching for a specific individual.

Swedish paper Aftonbladet.se is reporting unconfirmed rumours of a bomb threat against the arena [UPDATE: local media are no longer reporting bomb rumours, and instead talking of an unspecified security risk], adding that people outside were refused entry due a ‘ticket problem’, while those inside the arena are being asked to leave. Security are said to be checking under the venue’s seats”.
