Image Credit: Kevin Mazur/WireImage.comU2 has indefinitely postponed the North American leg of its 360º tour until next year, the band announced today via press release. The rockers tabled 16 dates scheduled for this June and July after Bono suffered a major back injury. The press release cites “severe compression of the sciatic nerve” and “a serious tear in the ligament and a herniated disc.” The singer was discharged from a hospital in Munich after emergency surgery on May 21. Doctors expect his recovery to last “at least eight weeks.”

The press release encourages fans to keep their tickets, and promises that the gigs will be rescheduled soon. Were you planning on seeing any of those 360º tour dates? Share your get-well-soon wishes for Bono in the comments below.
