Bono suffered a “complete loss of voice” at the band’s Saturday night show at Berlin’s Mercedes-Benz Arena, causing the engagement to end early. The 58-year-old frontman made it through the U2 hit “Beautiful Day” with the help of the audience, German news agency dpa reported Sunday.

Concertgoers first were told there would be a short break and eventually were informed the show was over, dpa said. They were advised to keep their tickets for a replacement performance.

U2 opened the European segment of its 2018 “Experience + Innocence” tour in Berlin on Friday. It has a sold-out show scheduled in Cologne on Tuesday and a second concert in the German city on Wednesday before back-to-back performances in Paris on Saturday and Sunday.

A note on U2’s website said ticketholders should expect more information from Live Nation regarding the rescheduled Berlin show on Monday.
