U2 Postpone Tour Launch After Bono's Emergency Surgery

U2 frontman Bono underwent emergency back surgery in Munich, Germany, on Friday after sustaining an injury during preparation for the next leg of the band's U2 360 tour.

A band spokesperson said on Friday, "Bono will spend the next few days there, before returning home to recuperate. Once his condition has been assessed further, a statement will be made regarding the impact on forthcoming tour dates."

As promised, because of the injury, Live Nation confirmed that the U2 360 tour launch previously scheduled for June 3rd in Salt Lake City has been postponed.

U2 fans with tickets to the June 3rd event are encouraged to retain tickets until updated show information can be provided. Additional tour information will be forthcoming.
