I just saw this and I'm shocked. I hope he recovers well and quickly.

In english class, we had to write a poem about a week ago on one item that means most to you right now in your home.
I chose my U2 ticket.

Today, I was in complete and utter shock when I had found out what happend, and I was glassy eyed all day,
but when I had to present my poem infront of the class, I read out ...
" I look at the slip of paper that has kept me excited and anxious for the past 230 days,
only 29 to go "

and I lost it :'(

Love you Bono! Get better very soon! <3


Hey Tyra how about posting the rest of your poem, I think we'd all like to read about now.

Bono's recovery time completely depends on what kind of surgery he had and where in his back the problem was located. There is a new type of surgery, called IDET, which is heat based and has a relatively quick recovery time. If he had something as serious as spinal fusion, it could take much longer.

With back surgery, the doctors want a patient to be up and moving around: mobility helps the healing process. But to go from an operating room to performing might be too much to expect. In any event, lots of good wishes to Bono. He will be in great hands in Munich.

My mum had the spinal fusion surgery, 7-9 days in the hospital and a recovery that took 8-10 weeks.....when I first heard about this this morning my only thought was ooooooowwwwwwwccccchhhhh! Even though I have tickets for anaheim and oakland, my first worry was that he'd try to come back too quickly and do permanent damage...I only hope he takes his time, they can do the make-up shows in late July if he can make the June 27th date in Minneapolis, but I'm sure we'd all rather he listen to Ali and his doctors. God bless, stay down, dude, stay down

Reminds me of the joke:

Bono: Doctor, will I be able to dance after surgery?
Doctor: Don't worry, you'll be able to dance just fine after this.
Bono: Oh thank God, that's a miracle! I always wanted to be able to dance.

It's been noted that the claw is heading for Minneapolis- which is the gig after Glastonbury. With Bono being Bono, I wouldn't be surprised if he was absolutely determined that come hell or high water, he would be back in time for Glasto, and they may use it to restart the tour. But that totally depends on whether or not he's capable!

When I first heard the news, I thought they would probably just cancel/postpone the entire US leg, but this gives me hope.  The SLC claw was scheduled for Oakland, then Minneapolis.. so could this mean that each of the claws is sticking to the same cities they were originally booked for?  I'm very curious to hear where the Anaheim claw is headed.. or for that matter, where the actual stage is going.

You will be in my prayers BONO! We all know that you are in good hands and that our Heavenly Father is watching over you!

I had a spinal fushion 8 years ago - for at least 2 months no sitting or driving....
This is painful.

Do we know exactly what type of back surgery it was?

The timing of this is terrible, and I'm not just talking about the tour. I'm talking about a certain birthday he's just had. If this had happened a few weeks ago when he was in his 40's, he would feel younger in all these news reports.
