SAN JOSE, Calif. — A U2 concert at Levi's Stadium left public officials upset after the event blew through Santa Clara’s 10 p.m. curfew, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

The Wednesday night concert, which didn't wrap up until 11 p.m., forced the Valley Transportation Authority (VTA) to add 11 extra after-hours trains to accommodate concertgoers resulting in an estimated cost of $61,000, the report said.

The VTA asked the 49ers, who manage Levi’s Stadium, to help cover the transit agency’s costs, but did not receive a response, according to the Chronicle.
