U2 and Ed Sheeran have canceled concerts planned for St. Louis this weekend over security concerns as the city faces violent protests following the acquittal of a former white police officer in the shooting death of a black man.

Promoter Live Nation and U2 wrote in a statement that the St. Louis Police Department would not be able to provide the "standard protection for our audience as would be expected for an event of this size" for the planned Saturday (Sept. 16) concert. The promoter was also informed that the local crowd security personnel would not be at full capacity.

"In light of this information, we cannot in good conscience risk our fans' safety by proceeding with tonight's concert," the statement read. "As much as we regret having to cancel, we feel it is the only acceptable course of action in the current environment."

Remarks:

After an unforeseen cancellation of the concert in St. Louis on September 16, U2 returned to the Phoenix area, the site of the kickoff of the original Joshua Tree tour in 1987. Inspired by the widescreen landscapes and scenery in Arizona, U2 performed a longer than average show at 22 songs, including the return of "Miss Sarajevo" to the encore. Bono paid tribute to the earthquake victims in Mexico City with "One" when he said: "Don't let go, Mexico... Viva Mexico!" Senator John McCain and his wife Cindy were honored by Bono during "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For". Also at the concert tonight were filmmakers Anton Corbijn and Bill Carter, Olympic athlete Michael Phelps, retired Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Randy Johnson and actor David Spade.
