I hope all goes well for our favorite front man!! But let's not jump to conclusions. We don't know how involved his back surgery is. His recovery may not be as long as some of you are speculating. I'm hoping that is the case. It completely depends on the extent of his injury, and how involved the surgery is. ???

But right now I'm completely DEVASTATED!! I was going to fly to SLC w/ my daughter, to take her to her 1st U2 concert! I don't know if I can afford to change my plane tickets!! And yet I'm with the rest of you who do not want him to return too prematurely, and risk further injury. Will he ever dance again???......oh yea, he can't dance anyway.  ;D

^hopefully.  at the very best, the june concerts will be off.  even if he recovers in a week (which is unlikely).  theres no way he could run around stage and do so much physical activity only three or four weeks after surgery.  it WOULD be funny if he were so determined to put on the show, he came out in a wheelchair and sang.  all i know is, whenever the tour does come about, it's going to be one of the most amazing tours yet.  there'll be so much love from fans...

I posted this in the main Bono thread but I'm posting here too. Beli and I thought that it would be a fabulous idea for us to have a ZooTV viewing gathering/prayer party tonight. We are aiming for 9:00pm EST for anyone who would like to join us.

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!

just saw that on twitter TUC.  we dont know what bono's condition is exactly, so its possible.  Glastonbury would be the best place to 'restart' the tour.  Haha.  Funny.  Restart and reboot yourself...


oh TUC, were temporarily the League of Extraordinary BonoPeople right now...us and the Bonogirls united.

As RTSS says, twitter:

"@u2start a truck driver leaving slc w/ part of the claw confirmed w/ me headed to Minneapolis."

...And thanks, RTSS!

Hopefully it isn't anything too serious, and his recovery is a relatively speedy one.

Oh this is not good. . . I guess my posts about this speculation a few days back on "The Band" forum did in fact turn out to be true. How heartbreaking! I feel for him and am sending him healing energy and will continue to do so. A virtual prayer circle is a great idea. Thank you Strong Girl for starting the card for him. How do you see that he gets it?

True, but if your back is that messed up as to require surgery, that ain't good.  I cannot imagine any back surgery that would result in a quick recovery.  But we shall see.
