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.
Anyone who’s been watching the news lately has seen coverage of Bret’s close call – wasn’t it only a couple weeks ago no one was sure whether Bret would live? No sooner do we all breathe a sigh of relief than he’s back on his feet – AND back to his tour! Take a rest, Bret… we’ll be here when you get back.
Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom released this press release today:
Rocker Bret Michaels will not perform at his previously scheduled engagement at the Casino Ballroom this Friday, May 14. Although his prognosis for the future is good, Mr. Michaels is still recovering from his much publicized health issues. The Casino Ballroom and Bret’s management team are working to reschedule the date.
If the date is rescheduled tickets for the May 14 performance will be honored for the new date. If the date cannot be rescheduled, or if ticket holders do not want to hold their tickets until a make up date is scheduled, refunds are now available at the point of purchase.
“Our main concern is for Bret’s long term health. We hope to have a new date confirmed this week, but everyone wants to make sure Bret remains on the right path with his health.” –Fred Schaake, GM Casino Ballroom
