One of the most popular bands in the world for the past 35 years has been U2. They are one of the few rock bands that have been able to maintain their popularity and sell out stadiums around the world on a regular basis. The band is currently on the European leg of their “Experience + Innocence” tour. The tour was going fine and getting great reviews. However, disaster struck at a recent show in Berlin, Germany. U2 singer Bono had a problem with his voice that forced him to stop the show after only singing a few songs.
Bono apologized to the crowd and said that it is not right that his voice sounded so bad. Therefore, he had to cancel the rest of the show. Thousands of U2 fans were forced to go home disappointed. Bono later released a statement saying that he had no choice but to end the show because he was not physically able to sing any longer. He said he went to a great doctor who was able to rule out any serious problems with his vocal cords. Bono says that his voice will make a full recovery and he will be able to resume the tour very soon.
All of the fans in Berlin who only got to hear a few songs will be able to enjoy a full U2 concert on November 13th. This is when the band has scheduled a return date to the German capitol. Bono was very upset that so many of their fans were inconvenienced by his vocal problems. However, he promised the band’s German fans that they will get a great show in two months. The fact that Bono was able to make such a rapid recovery was a relief for the people who book their tour. The band still has many shows to play before they finish with the European portion of their tour. Having Bono unable to sing for any length of time would have been a complete disaster.
Fans who have already bought tickets to future U2 shows have been advised to hold onto them. It does not appear that any other concerts will need to be cancelled. However, fans are advised to follow U2 on their various social media platforms so they can stay up to date if any cancellations become necessary. U2 will end their current tour in their home country of Ireland.
