U2 pay tribute to tour manager Dennis Sheehan during Los Angeles concert.

U2’s longtime tour manager, Dennis Sheehan, was found dead in his Los Angeles hotel room Wednesday morning, and the band he worked with for 33 years gave him a touching honor during their second show at The Forum. U2 paused during its sold out show for lead singer Bono to speak of the group’s extended family. “We look after each other and it takes a lot to put on a show like tonight.

He is irreplaceable.” A spokesman for the Los Angeles County coroner’s office said Sheehan possibly died of natural causes, although homicide investigators are looking into the death. He was U2’s tour manager for 33 years,” Bono said. “He loved, as we all do, the city of Los Angeles and he called the Sunset Marquis his ‘home away from home’. He always thought maybe U2 could be the next Led Zeppelin, which of course is impossible.” He then told a story of how the group dressed as Led Zeppelin for Sheehan’s last birthday, commending everyone else’s impersonations except his own. “The biggest problem was I couldn’t quite fill Robert Plant’s pants,” the singer joked before the group launched into “Iris (Hold Me Close)” off 2014’s Songs of Innocence.

He also worked on tours with Led Zeppelin, Lou Reed, Patti Smith, The Damned, Siouxsie and the Banshees and Soft Cell. “With profound sadness we confirm that Dennis Sheehan, U2’s longstanding tour manager and dear friend to us all, has passed away overnight,” Live Nation promoter Arthur Fogel said in the U2 statement. “Our heartfelt sympathy is with his wonderful family.”
