The gigs are not in "doubt" at all. The article used the tag line "could be delayed" to get you to read it. It's sort of contradicts itself once you read through it though. The stage in Sweden is probably already halfway done. The screen is the only thing that urgently needs to go but even that's probably already on it's way. U2 often have several days off between cities anyway so I'm sure it will allow for any potential delays.

Makes for great news but it's really a non-event.
