BERLIN (AP) — U2 had to end a concert in Germany on the second night of the band's European tour after lead singer Bono lost his voice during the performance.

The band posted a statement on its website after it halted the Saturday night concert in Berlin early, explaining that "Bono was in great form and great voice prior to the show ... but after a few songs he suffered a complete loss of voice."

"We don't know what has happened and we are taking medical advice," U2 said.

Bono left the stage at Berlin's Mercedes-Benz Arena after 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.

Concert-goers 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.
