Ed Sheeran and U2 cancel St Louis shows over security concerns

Ed Sheeran1 and U2 cancelled their shows in St .

Louis2 over the weekend due to security concerns, amid ongoing protests following the acquittal of a white former police officer charged with murdering a black man. U2 were booked to play The Dome at America’s Center on Saturday 16 September, while singer-songwriter Sheeran was supposed to perform a sold-out show at the Scottrade Center. However, police said they could not guarantee the typical level of security for a gig as protests continued in the city.

U2 frontman Bono3 said he was ‘deeply saddened” at the events in St Louis.

“I found myself reading Dr King’s speech from the National Cathedral and asking myself is this 1968 or 2017?” he said.

A statement from Live Nation, U2’s concert promoter, said: “We have been informed by the St Louis police department that they are not in a position to provide the standard protection for our audience as would be expected for an event this size.

“We have also been informed that local crowd security personnel would not be at full capacity.”

An additional post on the band’s website said they “cannot in good conscience risk our fans’ safety by proceeding with tonight’s concert.

“As much as we regret having to cancel, we feel it is the only acceptable course of action in the current environment.”

The promoters of Sheeran’s tour also said they were concerned with fan safety due to an insufficient police presence.

“With the safety of the fans being of upmost concern, and after consulting with local officials who could not fully commit to providing a sufficient amount of police and other city services support, we felt it was in everyone’s best interest to cancel Sunday night’s show,” Messing Touring Group4 said in a statement.

“While we regret to have had to come to this decision, we do look forward to returning to St Louis as soon as Ed’s schedule will allow in 2018.”

Tickets for both concerts will be refunded.

ARV course – shooting

ARV Course - ShootingHi there, I am planning to join an armed response team and I would like to know how good of a chance I have of passing Physically, I am pretty fit, I do runs all the time upwards of 3 miles so fitness isn’t a problem. I own an air rifle and do do some shooting and I’m definitely not the best shooter out there. How hard is the shooting part of the ARV course?

I know you do a week or two on the 9mm and another week or two on the carbine. How accurate do you have to be now? Isn’t it something like 70%? When I shoot an air rifle, the average I get is around 12-15 out of 20-25, but I don’t do it that reguarly. Sometimes I do it once a month, whenever I get time. I know it is different to shooting a proper carbine rifle and a handgun. I’ve been a cadet in my youth (some time ago now) and did okay with handling SA80s (horrible gun). So how hard is it and how much emphasis is put onto the firearms course? Nowadays they seem to want to get all the firearms officers they can get so I don’t mean if they’ll let standards slip because they shouldn’t but I’m not one to judge.

My force is Essex Police, but I might transfer to CO19 later.

Much Appreciated Alex Quote
