Irish star facing surgery following bike fall in New York

Bono is facing surgery following a bike fall in Central Park in New York yesterday.

The U2 star has injured his arm and it seems the incident was bad enough that the band have been forced to cancel their week-long residency on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon.

The gig was supposed to begin Monday but U2 have taken to their website to confirm the disappointing news: “It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time – we’re one man down. Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We’re sure he’ll make a full recovery soon, so we’ll be back! Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding.”

Sounds like a nasty fall if he isn’t able to perform – get better soon Bono!
