Published Nov 16, 2014This week, world-dominating Irish pop rockers U2 were slated to make a five-night residency on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Now, due to an unfortunate accident, the band have been forced to cancel.
According to a post from U2's website, Bono was injured in a cycling accident in New York's Central Park. He needed surgery, and while he's expected to make a quick recovery, it won't be in time for the television show.
In a post titled "From Edge, Adam & Larry," the band shared the following statement:
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.
As understanding as they may be, we can't help but feel for Jimmy Fallon's staff, who will now need to fill in the gaps for a week's worth of shows.
U2's Songs of Innocence was released earlier this year. The band also played the first episode of Jimmy Fallon's Tonight Show earlier this year.
