The luck of the Irish has run out for Bono. He was unscathed when a door came off his private jet mid-flight
on Nov. 12, but the U2 frontman did not fare as well during a recent venture with basic ground transportation.
On November 16, the singer fell off his bicycle during a spirited spin in New York's Central Park. The spill
was a nasty one, resulting in multiple injuries to his shoulder, arm, finger and eye socket. The damage to his humerus bone was particularly severe. The fracture required a five-hour operation that included three metal plates and eighteen screws for the repair. Bono also returned the next day for additional surgery on his finger.
Surgeon Dr. Dean Lorich stated that Bono's injuries would "require intensive and progressive therapy," but the prognosis is favorable for the 54-year-old's full recovery.
The accident meant that U2 could no longer perform their scheduled week of residence on The Tonight Show
. The band posted on their website that they would make good on the performances as soon as Bono was hale and hearty once again.
