According to CNN, U2 singer Bono has just been discharged from a German hospital where he underwent emergency back surgery. Bono apparently suffered a serious back injury on Friday while preparing for the continuation of the band's US tour. It seems the American shows will be postponed until next year. The group has also canceled an appearance at the Glastonbury Festival in England next month.
Dr. Muller Wohlfahrt (is that pronounced "Will Fart"?) had this to say:
Wohlfahrt indicated that eight weeks of rehabilitation is considered a minimum recovery period.

As best as I can determine, all of the US concert dates have been postponed until 2011.
Who said being a "Rock Star" is easy?
Get well soon Bono!
Just an aside, if I'm ever assigned a doctor named/pronounced "Doctor Will Fart," I suppose I'll just giggle a bit. But don't give me a Doctor named Hurt, Paine, or Dye! I'll be forced to ask for a change!
