Bono Responds To U2 Cancellation

posted by Taylor J. -

Bono has issued his statement about having to cancel U2's show at the Dome at America's Center this evening.  Many thought that maybe he would even join protesters as he's always been a human rights activist.  He drew a picture of the arch on Instagram and conveyed his feelings.  

Deeply saddened at what has happened in St. Louis and having to cancel our show tonight….I found myself reading Dr. King’s speech from the National Cathedral and asking myself is this 1968 or 2017? - Bono “Human progress never rolls in on the wheels of inevitability….we are coming to ask America to be true to the huge promissory note that it signed years ago. And we are coming to engage in dramatic nonviolent action, to call attention to the gulf between promise and fulfillment; to make the invisible visible.”
