U2, the famous Irish rock band that was supposed to take up a week-long residency on Jimmy Fallon's "The Tonight Show", has postponed their gig as frontman Bono injured his arm while cycling at Central Park, New York City.
"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," bandmates The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr., wrote on their official website.
"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," they added.
U2 was scheduled to feature on "The Tonight Show" for the entire week starting Monday to promote their album "Songs of Innocence." The band didn't give any more information on the injury. "The Tonight Show" also hasn't announced who will be replacing them.
U2 and Jimmy Fallon have a special bond because the band helped Fallon kick off his tenure as the host of one of the most popular shows on American television.
The cycling injury marks the second mishap for Bono in two weeks. Last week, a hatch on his private plane blew off and an emergency landing was called in. The entire rear compartment of the plane was exposed and their entire luggage had fallen off mid-air.
"...the entire door along with Bono and his companions' luggage had fallen out mid-air. They don't know if the door and the contents landed over water or land but they were extremely lucky," Mstarz.com quoted the Daily Mail.
"They were at an altitude where anything could have happened and they are all feeling very lucky to be alive."
