Additional tour information will be forthcoming
Transscript of Pauls message
“The band were really looking forward to getting back out on the road until the emergency surgery on Bono’s back, which took place in Munich today.
We were due to start rehearsals on Tuesday in Salt Lake City and get the show ready for the next leg. There were gonna be some changes and some new material. It’s unfortunate that we’re inconveniencing fans. We will make plans to reinstate these dates as soon as possible.
Obviously, it’s been very disruptive for our crew, as well; we have over 400 people converging on Salt Lake City, and some of them have been turned around and told to stay at home until we make our new plan. We hope to get things resolved as soon as possible. Keep watching U2.com and you’ll get the information as soon as we can get it out to you. Signing off, this is Paul McGuinness.”
