U2's Bono undergoes emergency back surgery

In the name of love, what happened to Bono?!? The leader singer of U2 was forced to undergo emergency back surgery after being injured while preparing for another tour.

According to the band's official website, Bono was "admitted to a specialist neuro surgery unit in a Munich hospital, and is under the care of neuro surgeon Prof. Dr. Jorg Tonn and Dr Muller Wohlfahrt. Bono will spend the next few days there, before returning home to recuperate."

The bad news for U2 fans is that this means a delay in some tour dates, beginning with the June 3 date in Salt Lake City. More postponements could be announced soon.
