Dubliners decry U2's noisy all-night stage removal

DUBLINERS angry over the around-the-clock dismantling of the huge stage used by U2 are mounting street protests. Managers warn that could jeopardize the Irish band's next European gigs.

U2 tour organizers hoped Tuesday to put more than 50 trucks bearing much of U2's "Claw" stage on a ferry to Britain. They delayed as residents demonstrated outside the stadium against the all-night construction noise involved.

U2 tour official Jake Barry says the protests are messing up a carefully planned schedule to move the 390-ton "Claw" and its 150 tons of lighting, sound and TV equipment to another venue.

U2 has three "Claw" stages. The band is scheduled to perform in Goteborg, Sweden, on Friday and Saturday; Gelsenkirchen, Germany, on Monday; and Chorzow, Poland, Aug. 6.
