Even though U2 topped Forbes' recently released list of top-earning music acts of last year, the band's insurance firm isn't quite so lucky. Insurance broker Robertson Taylor incurred a bill of $17 million in the wake of the back injury Bono sustained during tour rehearsals, according to The Sun. Bono required emergency surgery, and the band had to subsequently table their US summer tour and cancel their first-ever headlining appearance at the Glastonbury festival. Along with Bono's pain and suffering, and the band losing millions in tour revenue, the insurance company also took a hit.
Bono is currently focusing on his recovery and the band's tour is being rescheduled for 2011.
