U2 frontman Bono won't be cycling in Central Park again anytime soon
U2 frontman Bono has had some pretty close shaves in recent weeks!
First, the Irish rocker, whose real name is Paul David Hewson, was involved in a scary midair incident that forced his jet to make an emergency landing in Berlin, Germany, where U2 was scheduled to perform at the BAMBI Awards. According to sources, he is extremely lucky to be alive after a compartment at the rear of the plane completely detached — and now he's had a crash on his bike.
According to the band's official page, the "Beautiful Day" singer is undergoing surgery after getting into a bike accident in New York City's Central Park.
Bono's injury comes at a particularly bad time, and it's disappointing news for fans of the hit group, which also includes bandmates Adam Clayton, The Edge and Larry Mullen Jr., because the frontman's injury means they will have to pass on their highly anticipated gig, a weeklong residency at The Tonight Show.
The group took to their official website on Sunday to inform fans of the incident, saying, "It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time — we're one man down."
"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."
There is no official word yet as to whether the rockers will reschedule their performance or if anyone will be taking their place. Let's just hope Bono stays out of harm's way now!
