this has to be somewhat emergency surgery as surely he would have scheduled it better had he known it was coming.  i wonder if he has a chronic problem that finally crossed the line or whether there was a more recent, acute injury.

best of luck to Bono.

the article cut off on me.  I think the part that was cut off was, "Bono was injured while stage diving during 10 minute epic version of Bad with a full Red Hill Mining Town played in the middle of the song."

Well , someone here mentioned Bono hurting his back on our forum a couple of days ago. I don't remember what thread or who said it. Apparently there were rumors about it. Bono did look like he was in pain to me in recent photos but  I could not find any facts to back it up. So I tend to think it was a problem that crossed the line , Dream Out Loud. Just my opinion though.

I wish him a speedy recovery. His health and family are the most important things right now.

I do hope this does not put a financial hardship on anyone for the canceled concert as well.

As far as recovery time.....in my past experience with friends and family who have had back surgery, recovery is along the lines of 6 months. Of course, each case is different. SG

Hi onetree and zoost!!!! ;)

Get well soon Bono, jeez I feel for you.

Folks, all thoughts need to be with Bono on this (and of course they all are). Until a statement is released on U2.com about the seriousness of his injury, we all need to keep our fingers crossed for him. Trust me, talking from experience, if his injury was a serious one, recuperation from major back surgery can take up to 12 months!!

Please, please PLEASE let it be not too serious. Hopefully, he's recovery will be quick.  :'(

Consider yourself lucky.  I have flights, hotels, cars, and everything else booked already for Anaheim.

Considering the show is already postponed, I don't see how this is surprising.  I guess they could just leave it up for people to look at  :D

Here is the thread where we first heard of this rumor by forum member Magnificent1 .  The thread is now locked so you can continue the discussions here but I thought you may like to see this.

I've been training the new VISTAs all morning and just now heard about this. I truly hope the surgery goes well and he makes a full recovery.

According to the Irish Times latest report...Bono to spend next few days in Munich hospital before Doctors can fully assess the success of the surgery and presumably more accurately assess recuperation time involved....
