U2 Drops Out Of KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas; Announces World Tour

10809940_734401786613210_1417880729_n

Well it appeared too good to be true and now it is.

Bono is still suffering from injuries he obtained in a bicycle accident last month in New York City and The Edge of U2 confirmed they will no longer be performing at KROQ's Almost Acoustic Christmas in Los Angeles this month.

“He managed to come out of it with what you can only describe as injuries from a car crash, literally multiple fractures of bones in his elbow and his back. But he’s doing OK. We’re kind of lucky he was wearing a helmet, so he didn’t actually break Central Park. He’s made of tough stuff and he’s bouncing back.”

“He’s so upset about the fact that unfortunately as we’re about to announce, we’re not going to be able to do the Acoustic Christmas. He’s been told by his doctors to stay put. He’s back in Dublin right now and he basically can’t move for the next couple of months.”

“The poor guy, basically his left elbow was shattered, so a lot of the work was reconstructing the joints and putting in wires and plates. He actually showed us some x-rays a couple days later, it looked like a miniature Eiffel Tower.”-The Edge of U2

The Edge then announced U2's upcoming tour.

Bono attended the Clinton Global Initiation this week and while on the panel, he impersonated former President Bill Clinton. He was quite spot on!

Love it! Classic. Check it out!-DocFB

Diagnosis: Liked Bill Clinton as President...except for that whole FCC thing where a company can own more than one radio and TV station. Now, that was lame. Will Obama over turn it? We will see....

Prince played the House of Blues Wednesday night and brought along enough star power to rival the American Idol Finale!

Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes, Charlie Sheen, David Spade, Dan Akroyd, Dr. Cornel West, Tavis Smiley, Tony Kanal of No Doubt, Sanna Hamri, and later in the night, Bono.

The celebs went crazy with Prince as he did his classics such as "U Got The Look", "Mountains" and "Let's Work" along with a new song called "U Will Be With Me" that impressed the audience.  Tom Cruise and others were on the move all night. 

After the show, Tom reached over to Katie with a huge smile on his face.   Charlie Sheen did not want to mingle with the Hollywood elite on the 2nd floor and chose to instead chill by the soundboard on the first floor.  Very interesting.  This was one of Charlie's first public appearances since Ashton Kutcher was named to replace him on "2 and Half Men."  Only Prince can bring Charlie out.

Later in the night, Bono joined in the fun watching Prince play until 4 in the morning!

Prince has 3 more shows at the Forum this Weekend in L.A., Friday Saturday and Sunday.  We can't think of a better way to spend Memorial Day Weekend then partying with Prince.  Good seats are still available on Ticketmaster.com-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  Even Celebs Love The Purple Funk!

Prince pulled a trifecta at the House of Blues Wednesday night, providing over 8 hours of rock, funk, and soul that entertained, mesmerized, frustrated, and added to Prince's legend as the greatest living live musician of all time.

Prince took the stage after 9 P.M. and the upstairs area had more star power than American Idol that night with Tom Cruise, Katy Holmes, Tony Kanal of No Doubt, Dan Akroyd, Dr. Cornel West, Sanna Hamri,Tavis Smiley, Charlie Sheen, David Spade, Kelis, and later in the night, Bono.
