U2 has pulled out of its weeklong residency on The Tonight Show scheduled to begin on Monday after Bono injured his arm in a bike accident. The front man will need surgery to repair it, the band announced on Sunday.
A statement on U2’s website read: “It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time – we’re one man down. Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We’re sure he’ll make a full recovery soon, so we’ll be back! Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding.”
It’s been a harrowing week for Bono. On Wednesday, a private plane that he was flying on lost a door mid-flight. The plane landed safely in Berlin, where he was headed to perform with U2 at the annual BAMBI Awards on Thursday.
