Star recovering in Dublin after shock trauma


The frontman of one of the biggest bands in the world must have thought that home was the only place he wanted to be after suffering a terrifying accident last month.

U2 star Bono was spotted on Dublin’s fair streets at the weekend while recuperating from a bike accident which took place in New York in November.

The 54- year-old musician required surgery after the accident in Central Park and the frightening incident meant that the band had to cancel the week-long residency appearance they had scheduled for The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.

It looked like the dad-of-four was keen to avoid photographers in the capital on Saturday and attempted to conceal his injured arm beneath his cosy winter coat. His trademark sunglasses also disguised the shattered eye socket he suffered. Ouch.

His injuries, which also included a fractured little finger and a broken funny bone, meant that in addition to missing The Tonight Show, he was also forced to pull out of U2’s performance at a World Aid’s Day benefit concert in Time Square at the beginning on December.

We hope Bono finds a little comfort in his home city after a very stressful month!
