U2's longtime tour manager, Dennis Sheehan, was found dead Wednesday (May 27) morning in his hotel room in West Hollywood.
"With profound sadness we confirm that Dennis Sheehan, U2's longstanding tour manager and dear friend to us all, has passed away overnight. Our heartfelt sympathy is with his wonderful family," Arthur Fogel said in a statement.
"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," Bono said on U2.com.
