U2's Bono Undergoes Emergency Back Surgery

U2's summer tour plans are currently on hold, as lead singer Bono had to undergo emergency back surgery last week. The rocker is currently recovering in a hospital in Germany.

"Bono has today undergone emergency back surgery for an injury sustained during tour preparation training," a message posted Friday on U2.com read. "He was admitted to a specialist neurosurgery unit in a Munich hospital, and is under the care of neurosurgeon Prof. Dr. Jorg Tonn and Dr. Muller Wohlfahrt. Bono will spend the next few days there, before returning home to recuperate."

For now, the fate of the band's 360 tour is still up in the air.

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

U2's next scheduled concert is June 3 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
