The rock band U2, which had booked a weeklong gig for this week on NBC’s “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” has had to cancel because of an injury suffered by singer Bono, reports the Los Angeles Times’ Show Tracker.
“Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it,” U2 said Sunday on its website.
“Tonight Show” host Fallon had prepared for the visit by asking viewers to record themselves lip syncing to U2’s song “The Miracle (of Joey Ramone)” and upload their recordings. The show planned to play the clips during a live performance of the song, the story adds.
“It looks like we will have to do our ‘Tonight Show’ residency another time,” the band said. “We’re sure he’ll make a full recovery soon, so we’ll be back!”
