Bono: 'A Battle' To Be Ready for Innocence+Experience Tour Opener



Bono has been talking to RollingStone.com about his rehab work to get ready for the start of the Innocence+Experience tour, which is about 2.5 months away. The article is primarily about the recent news that many iOS users are listening to U2, but it begins with an update on Bono's condition after his horrific bike accident in November.

"It'll be a battle to be match fit for May 14th," Bono confesses, referring to the opening date in Vancouver of U2's impending tour. Asked to describe the state of his health after the bicycle accident in New York last November that left him with multiple injuries, including a facial fracture, the singer says, "My southpaw is a bit tricky, but my right hook is ready to rumble for sure." As for the shows, dubbed the Innocence and Experience tour, with alternating set lists each night, Bono promises, "We've got something beyond incredible planned. And I'm ready to fight for it."

Bono has been spotted a few times out and about since the accident, most recently on Wednesday at Jack Heaslip's funeral in Dublin (where the whole band was in attendance). The Herald said that Bono "moved gingerly" as he walked to the altar for a Bible reading. That link also has photos of Bono and the band outside St. Mary's Church.
