Following the death of their longtime tour manager Dennis Sheehan yesterday (May 27), U2 paused during their show at The Forum later that night to pay tribute.
“He loved, as we all do, the city of Los Angeles and he called the Sunset Marquis his ‘home away from home,'” Bono said. “He came to this city as a young man in the ‘70s, working for Led Zeppelin. He always thought maybe U2 could be the next Led Zeppelin, which of course is impossible.”
Bono went on to tell a funny story in memory of Sheehan: the story of the time the band tried to be Zeppelin for Sheehan.
