U2's Bono is in the hospital for emergency back surgery. He recorded a video from his bed to offer encouragement to his fans that are no doubt sad that the latest tour by the Irish supergroup is on hold due to Bono's back injury problems. The singer is personally "sad" that plans for the supergroup to play Glastonbury have been canceled.
While rehearsing for the band's worldwide 360 Tour, the singer got injured, requiring surgery back in May, but now new problems have landed him in emergency surgery in a German hospital. The band hopes to resume their tour very soon when Bono feels well enough to tolerate the grueling schedule.
Bono adds, "That this is not very rock n' roll". Yeah, kind of like growing old, huh?
