NEW YORK (AFP) – U2 frontman Bono will be getting surgery after injuring his arm in a fall from his bicycle in New York’s Central Park, the band said Sunday.
The statement from band members Edge, Adam and Larry did not give details on the injury or the upcoming surgery.
However, they said they were cancelling a planned weeklong “residency” on late night’s the “Tonight Show” on US network NBC.
“It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time – we’re one man down,” the musicians wrote.
“Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it.
“We’re sure he’ll make a full recovery soon, so we’ll be back! Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding.”
