U2 forced to postpone U.S. tour as Bono recovers from surgery

Hollywoodnews.com: Bono’s back injury might end up being more of a pain for U2 fans holding tickets to the band’s upcoming concert tour.

Not that the lead singer is recuperating from emergency surgery conducted in Germany, the iconic rock act has been forced to cancel its North American tour, according to Time Magazine.

U2 had 16 shows on the schedule in June and July. International fans are also left holdign the bag, as U2 has dropped out of a headlining gig for England’s famous Glastonbury festival.

“I’m heartbroken,” Bono said in a statement. “We really wanted to be there to do something really special.”

So when will Bono be back on his feet? The band’s official Web site says the earliest possible date would be Aug. 6, when U2 is scheduled to play Turin, Italy. But that’s just if the recovery goes according to plan.

On the site, www.U2.com, Live Nation officials said U.S. concert dates will be rescheduled for 2011.

“Although we understand the disappointment to U2 fans, first and foremost comes the recovery of Bono,” said U2 tour producer/promoter Arthur Fogel, CEO of Live Nation Global Touring.
