The Edge Says Bono ‘Basically Can’t Move’ for Next Few Months After Bike Accident

As U2 announces a sizable North American tour for 2015, guitarist The Edge is confirming that Bono, who recently injured himself in a bicycle accident and has been out of commission since, is going to be just fine by then—even though he may have to miss some appearances in the process, including KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas later this month.

The rocker called in to CBS Radio station KROQ’s Kevin & Bean Show this morning (Dec. 3) to discuss the incident, as well as the tour.

“He managed to come out of it with what you could only describe as injuries from a car crash, literally, multiple fractures of bones in his elbow and in his back,” The Edge said. “But he’s doing OK.”

Don’t worry—though his injuries, which included multiple fractures (chiefly a facial fracture affecting the orbit of his eye and a humerus bone fracture in his left arm that tore through the skin), may have been severe, at least he was wearing a helmet.

“We’re kind of lucky he was wearing a helmet so he didn’t actually break Central Park,” the guitarist said. “But he’s made of of tough stuff and he’s bouncing back. He’s so upset about the fact that, unfortunately we’re about to announce, we’re not going to be able to do the Acoustic Christmas because he’s been told by his doctors that he’s got to stay put. He’s back in Dublin right now and basically he can’t move for the next couple of months.”
