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


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.
