U2 had to cancel their performance at Glastonbury and reschedule shows in North America due to Bono needing emergency back surgery! Woa. He is suffering from “severe compression of the sciatic nerve” and a “serious tear in the ligament and a herniated disc” that was causing “partial paralysis” in his leg (according to the band’s website). Unfortunately, he will need 8 weeks to recover.
Luckily, the surgery went well. Dates are going to be moved to 2011. Think positive thoughts. Paralysis is no joke.
