Bono has emergency surgery to save him from paralysis; U2′s U.S. tour CANCELED.

Here’s the story on Bono’s emergency surgery.

Thank God my favorite rock star’s going to be alright. But what a shame. I had great seats for their Seattle show in June, but now the U.S. tour’s been canceled.

    U2.com reports that the US tour dates will be rescheduled. Ticketmaster, so far at least, has told me to keep my tickets.

    Wow. You can really sense the disappointment in Bono that this happened to him, not so much over his injury, but the impact to U2′s fans. I hope they somehow make it back here and all you folks who have tickets can see them in the future.
