A U2 concert was evacuated in Stockholm tonight after a security threat

Scary stuff.

U2 fans had to be evacuated from the Globe Arena in Stockholm after threats were made to the security of a specific person in the audience, it is being reported.

Video footage on Twitter shows stewards and security at the venue searching beneath seats for something or someone.

Eventually the entire arena was cleared of people in order to facilitate a sweep of the floor.

It seems that the venue has been declared safe, judging by tweets that say fans are back in the building and ready to see Bono and co. do their thing.

Other reports suggest that doors are still locked to some fans, and that the situation is not back to normal.

We wish everyone in Stockholm a safe night.
