U2 is amazing, they’re huge, they’re fabulous, they’re BIG – and they’re not coming to America this year.
Bono’s recent back problems, including compression of the sciatic nerve, a torn ligament and a herniated disc prompted a trip to the surgeon and a last-minute pull from the Glastonbury Music Festival in Europe, but the latest news takes it a bit further. Bono’s spinal surgery will require a minimum of 8 weeks to recover, meaning that U2’s North American tour, scheduled to hit US shores later this summer, will now be postponed until 2011.
We’re sad too. But hold onto your tickets, because they will be good for the new dates – and join us in wishing Bono a speedy and full recovery.
