"Time won’t leave me as I am…"
As the whole U2 world has probably learned today, Bono needed emergency surgery on his back. He’s had a recent history of back problems, but it seems bad enough to require surgery, leading to the decision to cancel the first show, and possibly others. We all hope for a safe and speedy recovery.
In addition to the injury itself, the news is really disappointing to hear on many levels. This certainly impacts all those fans who’ve made travel arrangements and the need to cancel their flights, accommodations, and car rentals. I was seriously looking forward to the shows in two weeks time. I’m sure we’re all curious about what the next step will be. How long will it take for Bono to recover? Where will the tour kick off? Will the North American tour be cancelled?
