Sorry, U2 fans: 16 upcoming North American dates on the Irish band's sprawling 360° Tour have been postponed until 2011, including the July 9 show at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens.
50-year-old frontman Bono underwent emergency back surgery in Munich Friday, which will sideline him for at least eight weeks, according to MTV.
Live Nation is encouraging U2 fans to hold on to their tickets, pending the announcement of a rescheduled show. They are directing any questions to Ticketmaster Customer support at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-653-8000.
If there is any silver lining for disappointed fans, it's that U2 360° at the Rose Bowl will be released June 3. The DVD and Blu-Ray captures the band's October 2009 performance at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.
