Bono Injured In Cycling Accident

Injury Forced U2 To Cancel 'Tonight Show' Residency

U2’s residency on The Tonight Show was set to begin tonight, but it looks like they’ll have to wait for a while. The band cancelled their appearances in New York this week after lead singer Bono hurt himself in a cycling accident in Central Park.

According to a statement issued on the band’s website, Bono required surgery to repair his arm after the accident, but he is expected to make a complete recovery. It is currently unclear as to whether the band will return to The Tonight Show for a residency, though the band and host Jimmy Fallon had called on fans to submit videos of themselves lip-syncing “The Miracle (Of Joey Ramone)” for use in one of the performances.

This incident is the latest in what has been a bad week for Bono: the singer had a frightening brush with death earlier last week when the door of his private plane ripped off mid-flight during a trip to Germany.

U2’s new album Songs Of Innocence is available now on vinyl, CD, and on your iPhone.
