Bono’s Back . . . Thanks to German Medical Technology

August 18, 2010 – 5:59 am

Leading-edge medical technology and a competent team of German doctors allowed Bono, frontman of the rock band U2, to return to the stage after undergoing back surgery nine weeks earlier. Without its lead singer, U2′s 2010 European summer tour could not have taken place as scheduled. The 50-year-old singer had to take a break for several months because of severe back problems and tour dates in the United States and Canada had to be postponed. But the bone replacement surgery he received in Munich, Germany, at the end of May 2010 brought the desired relief and the 360° tour kicked off as planned in Turin, Italy, on 6 August. During the second European concert in Frankfurt, Germany on 10 August, Bono said in front of 60,000 fans: “I have been rebuilt using the best engineering in the world, German engineering. I have never felt better. I feel like…like a Mercedes Benz.”

Even better than the real thing?
