(Gibson) Heading up the biggest concert tour in the history of rock music has to be taxing. So, it's no wonder U2's Bono is hinting at a major hiatus for the guys over the next few years.

In an interview with Guilty Pleasures (via Metro) in the U.K. at the annual GQ Men of the Year Awards, the singer first mentioned how much the gents of U2 enjoyed every blasted date of the 360 Tour: "They say every tour is 10 days too long.
