BERLIN (CelebrityAccess) – U2 were forced to abruptly end their Saturday evening concert in Berlin, Germany after Bono suffered a sudden and complete loss of voice.
The show was the band’s second date on the European leg of their eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour, however, was canceled just five songs in when it became apparent Bono was having an issue singing.
Shortly after, U2 released an official statement on their website that read: “Bono was in great form and great voice prior to the show and we were all looking forward to the second night in Berlin, but after a few songs, he suffered a complete loss of voice. We don’t know what has happened and we’re taking medical advice.”
Bono later released his own statement saying: “I’ve seen a great doctor and with his care I’ll be back to full voice for the rest of the tour. So happy and relieved that anything serious has been ruled out. My relief is tempered by the knowledge that the Berlin audience were so inconvenienced,” he added. “There was an amazing atmosphere in the house, it was going to be one of those unforgettable nights but not for this reason.”
U2 has rescheduled the canceled Berlin show for November 13th.
