U2 Postpones North American Tour Until 2011.

U2 tour postpones North American concerts until 2011 as Bono continues recovery from back surgery.  U2 has indefinitely postponed the North American leg of its 360º tour until next year, the band announced today via press release. The rockers tabled 16 dates scheduled for this June and July after Bono suffered a major back injury. The press release cites “severe compression of the sciatic nerve” and “a serious tear in the ligament and a herniated disc.” The singer was discharged from a hospital in Munich after emergency surgery on May 21. Doctors expect his recovery to last “at least eight weeks.”
