So U2 drops out of the big KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas line-up. Who do you have replace them and noe get mad about it? No doubt it would be Southern California's own No Doubt right? Exactly.
Tony Kanal of No Doubt called into KROQ to make the announcement. He also talks about the newly remodeled Forum and how the bathrooms are now clean. He even makes a Prince "Purple Rain" tour reference. Ha!
As KROQ said, you cannot replace U2 but let me tell you, No Doubt was a great decision, especially with the set list No Doubt has been doing lately.-DocFB
Diagnosis: KROQ has it covered for #KROQXMAS25
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.
