Injury Causes U2 To Cancel Week Long Tonight Show Residency

(PCM) It appears that U2’s Bono can’t seem to catch a break! Last week, he got quite the scare when the tailgate of his private Learjet flew off mid-flight which could have led to a potential plane crash. Now, he has injured his arm after a cycling accident in New York’s Central Park which will require surgery to repair. Bono’s arm injury also has caused the band to pull out of their scheduled week long residency on NBC’s The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. The band’s website featured the following statement from Edge, Adam and Larry: “We are one man down. Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it.” The statement went on to say “It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time. Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding.”
