    According to a band rep, U2 frontman Bono underwent emergency back surgery after suffering an injury during the band's rehearsals for their upcoming world tour. In the statement, it was revealed that Bono, born Paul Hewson, "will spend the next few days" in a Munich hospital "before returning home to recuperate." As to whether or not the surgery will postpone the upcoming tour dates has yet to be determined. I am left wondering WTF Bono was doing to injure his back? Heavy lifting of an amp? Attempting a dance move he did not warm up properly enough to pull off? All the band spokesperson would say was that Bono was treated for an "injury sustained during tour preparation training."

    "Once his condition has been assessed further, a statement will be made regarding the impact on forthcoming tour dates," the spokesperson said.
