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.
Jimmy Fallon is making sure his first week as host of the Tonight Show is must see TV with appearances by Will Smith, U2, Lady Gaga, Michelle Obama, Arcade Fire, and now Justin Timberlake!
Will we see another "History Of Rap" on the show? We can't just see Justin being interviewed or just a musical performance. We see both and maybe a skit as well.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Fallon bringing it to the Tonight Show
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 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.
