Despite reports to the contrary, U2’s publicist says that Bono did not visit a hospital in Monaco over the weekend because of complaints of chest pains and heart palpitations.

According to a statement given to Reuters, The 51-year-old Bono (born Paul Hewson) did stop by Princess Grace hospital while he was on vacation, but it was merely for a routine check-up.

“Reports of his being rushed to hospital for emergency treatment are untrue,” the statement read. “Bono is in good health and enjoying a family holiday in the south of France.”

Bono deserves the rest; his band recently completed a massive stadium tour that is now officially the most lucrative jaunt in rock history. All told, they took in over $700 million, besting the Rolling Stones A Bigger Bang tour from a few years back.
