U2's residency with Jimmy Fallon POSTPONED

It may sound like satire or a parody, but it's unfortunately true: Bono requires surgery after injuring his arm in a cycling accident in Central Park, New York, so U2's forthcoming residency all week on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon has been indefinitely postponed.

Read a brief letter from Edge, Adam, and Larry on U2.com here.

We will keep you updated and hopefully rescheduled dates will be confirmed soon.

If Bono has to perform rescheduled dates and Almost Acoustic Christmas with his arm in a sling, it won't be the first time. He dislocated his shoulder during the 20 September 1987 concert in Washington DC. No shows were postponed that time around, but his movement on stage was obviously inhibited for the month he was in the sling. The first show without the sling was on 20 October 1987 in Iowa City and Bono's joy was palpable.

Below is a video of Bono performing "Exit" in Syracuse while wearing the sling on 9 October 1987. Follow this link if you want to watch the entire gig.
