LONDON (VIP NEWS) — A U2 concert in Sevilla has been called off because of the country-wide strike due to take place on September 29 in protest over the government's proposed labour reform.
Anyone traveling to Sevilla on that day to see U2 live should now go on the following day, September 30, for which tickets will remain valid.
Although details of the strike have not yet been announced, it is almost certain to affect public sector workers.
This means cleaning, security and public transport, as well as medical services, are likely to be unavailable or running with a skeleton staff only.
All of these are essential services for a major live music concert.
Organizers say they want to guarantee that U2's fans 'have the best possible time at the Sevilla concert,' and have therefore taken the decision to put it back a day.
Those who will now be unable to attend can get a refund on their tickets from the original point of sale, provided they do so before September 10.
U2's '360º Tour' will arrive in Spain on September 26, where they will play at the Anoeta stadium in San Sebastián before moving down south.
