The ongoing protests over a judge’s decision to find former police officer Jason Stockley not guilty of murder in the 2011 death of Anthony Lamar Smith have led major entertainment venues to cancel events.

Tonight’s scheduled concert by U2 at the Dome at America’s Center has been canceled, as has Sunday’s show by singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran at Scottrade Center.

 The St. Louis Symphony also has canceled its concert for tonight.

Record setting weekend expected at Busch Stadium Sunday

Busch Stadium could set an attendance record this weekend, but the crowd won't be there for a St. Louis Cardinals game. A stadium-record 52,000 people are expected for the U2 concert scheduled for Sunday night. That will include fans with seats on the field.

A replacement for the oldest interstate bridge in the St. Louis region has gotten the green light from the Missouri Highways and Transportation Commission.

The Commission this morning approved $120 million for a new westbound Daniel Boone Bridge, which carries traffic on Highway 40 across the Missouri River. The westbound span was built in the 1930s and needs constant maintenance.

Less than 24 hours after the Cardinals completed a 4-2 win over Arizona, the sod at Busch Stadium is dug up and gone.
