As someone who works with a lot of back surgery patients, it's very likely the first half of the tour will be postponed.  There is no way he'll feel well enough to be on stage for the length of the show and if he was, he'd have to alternate standing/sitting.  It will not be the Bono that we're used to seeing on stage.  I hate to be a Debbie Downer, but this is the reality of back surgery. 

I have tickets to Oakland and Seattle.  I'll still be going up to Seattle, regardless of the show being cancelled.

I have a ton of flights bought and paid for right now.

I hope B is going to be okay.

Solo Edge acoustic tour?  I'm in.

That would be wonderful until Bono gets well , EF. So sorry for you and other fans who have money invested in this. I really am. Of course Bono's health is the most important. I know he will give us all our concerts when he is able. We will have to be patient.

We need to think of a way to get together and pray for Mr. B.  Back surgery is a scary deal. 
Sure we could all arrange a virtual prayer circle.
Yes, let's!!
I'm definitely IN ~ should we start a prayer chain thread?  Should we pick a certain time like 8 hours from now to all stop and petition God?

Crap I really hope he's alright. At least it's not life-threatening or anything. :( What a horrible way to start your 50th year.

We have a thread called Walk On Support Thread where we send prayers and/or positive thoughts out . It is in Real World and we already started to pray for Bono there.

I sure hope he has a speedy recovery but it when it comes to back surgery I'm not so sure that's possible.  A thought just occured to me I'd like to share.  Maybe he is going to be out for the year to get healthy and tour ready.  Maybe Songs of Ascent could be released right after Thanksgiving for the holidays, have some radio hits and then take that beast of a stage back out to promote the new album at the beginning of 2011.  It's a long time from now and it sucks for all the people with plane tickets and hotel rooms, I feel horrible for those of you.  I had the thought and thought it could be a bright side to the situation.

I think I'm like a lot of people in that my heart goes out to Bono- and my head unfortunately immediately leaps to "But will he be better for MY show?" But I also think I'm like pretty much everyone here in saying that this more selfish impulse is pretty immediately curtailed; I wish him a speedy, healthy and full recovery, and may he take as much time our as he needs to for it. His health is first and foremost the most important thing!

Right, there is no way he's going to be able to perform in the next month. I have tickets to see U2 in Chicago, but under no circumstances do I want Bono to be pushing himself to be well for the tour if he's in pain after the surgery. He has to think of his health first. I'd be surprised if the whole tour wasn't pushed back to next year. I just hope he recovers well. My thoughts are with the B man.

I would rather have a healthy Bono on stage next year (if this leg gets postponed til then) than an injured Bono on stage this summer.  I think we can all agree on that

If you would like to post your best wishes to Bono, we started our own @U2 Get Well Card in the Band Section. Here is the link for you. 

Discussions may continue here though. Thanks!

Yes. ^^  Plus you never know...maybe he'll think of new songs while he's in bed.
