Tonight's show was cancelled after just 5 songs due to Bono losing his voice halfway through "Red Flag Day". Initially, fans thought the microphone stopped working, but after the song Bono said: "I think it's the smoke. I can promise you I have not been smoking, but this is like a giant cigar - I've lost my voice and I don't know what to do." A few minutes later, Bono attempted to sing "Beautiful Day" but his voice was mostly inaudible throughout the song. Bono: "Oh man. So, so sorry." After the band announced they would take a 15 minute break to see if Bono's voice would return, a concert spokesman walked out onto the stage after 20 minutes and told the fans to be patient. After another 20 minutes passed, the man came back out again and announced the show was cancelled and that fans should hold onto their tickets for a future makeup date. This was only the 2nd in the band's history that 3 or more songs during a show were cancelled during the set (the other time was on December 18, 1989 in Amsterdam when Bono lost his voice). A day later, it was announced that the rescheduled date for this show would happen on November 13, 2018.
