21 May 2010Following Bono's unexpected back surgery earlier today, Live Nation confirmed that the U2 U2360° tour launch previously scheduled for June 3rd in Salt Lake City has been postponed.
U2 fans with tickets to the June 3rd event are encouraged to retain tickets until updated show information can be provided.
Additional tour information will be forthcoming.
We were gonna go to the show with my college roommate, Kari, who likes me even though she saw my filthy 1994 bedroom. (Dear BYU co-eds, a good trick for keeping that rule about no boys in your bedroom: store all dirty unders on the floor. You will find it easy to make sure guests stay in the living room.) Her husband Craig, my Dad's new BFF, invited us. Dad and Craig have hiked the Grand Canyon TWICE this year. (Dear Craig: please lay off trying to get my Dad up Mount Everest. We like him quite a lot, and we don't want to see his popsicled corpse in an IMAX movie.)
Last time we tried to go to a concert with Kari and Craig, Coldplay cancelled on us. (But then they rescheduled and it was fab. Read all about it here. ) Anyhow, Kari thinks we are cursed, and that the moment I clicked purchase tickets at Southwest.com, somewhere in Germany, Bono's back snapped in two.
Were any of you planning to attend?
Are you very angry with me for ruining your plans?
