U2 Frontman Bono Injures Arm While Cycling in New York City; ‘The Tonight Show’ Performance Delayed Due to Accident

U2 front man Bono injured his arm while cycling in New York City's Central Park, causing his band's week-long appearance on "The Tonight Show" to be postponed.

Bono's band members confirmed his accident in a brief statement as posted on their official website on Sunday, according to FOX News.

However, there were no details as to how and when Bono met the said accident.

"It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time - we're one man down," the band wrote on their website.

Additionally, the band explained via the same platform, "Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We're sure he'll make a full recovery soon, so we'll be back!"

The band members also thanked "The Tonight Show" host Jimmy Fallon for his understanding and said, "Much thanks to The Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding."

Earlier this week, Bono's private jet came off while landing in Berlin. A spokesperson for the Berlin airport told the Associated Press that they are currently investigating the matter but confirmed that the plane was never in danger of crashing, ABC News noted.

"The Learjet lost a door where the luggage was put in. There can be many reasons for this incident. Either something broke on the door or the door wasn't closed properly. Those are the usual problems that occur," Germout Freitag, an official with the German Federal Bureau of Aircraft Accident Investigations said.

Meanwhile, this is not the first time that Bono suffered an injury throughout the span of his musical career, the Huffington Post reported.

Back in 2010, he suffered a spinal injury while he was preparing for a tour and underwent an emergency surgery in Germany. The surgery resulted to the delay of the tour, the same publication confirmed.
