U2 Tour Manager Passes Away Hours After Show

Longtime U2 tour manager Dennis Sheehan was pronounced dead in his hotel room in Los Angeles, according to Mirror. He was 69 years old.

Just six hours after the band completed a sold-out show, paramedics were called for a cardiac arrest report around 5:30 am to Sheehan's hotel room at the Sunset Marquis Hotel, where he was reportedly found unconscious. 

According to U2's website, Bono released a statement today that said:

       We've lost a family member, we're still taking it in. He wasn't just a legend in the                music business, he was a legend in our band. He is irreplaceable.

Sheehan has been the band's tour manager for 33 years since 1982 before they released their War album. He was awarded the Parnelli Lifetime Achievement Award in 2008.
