no problemo lads
Lads, Aye shite happens Bono. Life can be fragile eh? I had a wee bump masel broke ma neck in a car crash so I know how it goes. Thank god I never hurt or killed anyone but masel. Ma wife brought the Vertigo album in tae the hospital, ma accident was soon after you had released it. I think mibbe I had it on when I fell asleep! Na, I jest with yi, I shoulda had it on, but it was the pogues, a right sleepy mob that! I was playing Vertigo ad nausea in the hospital it took me through some dark days of not knowing if I would walk again or not. I always do go overboard on your albums release' except when I canni get away wi it. It always takes a good listen (about a month or two) for me tae get in the groove, thats a good thing. I recoverd listening to it. My wife was right happy cause she didnae need tae listen to it 18/7 for a coupla months. She claims I spoil your music by over use! Whats that??? Och she"s American, moderation an aw that. I'm in the States not Glasgow, (home). I felt for yi man when I heard the black news about yir back. I'm so happy that yir up and at it again. I will see you and the lads in Pittsburg. I'm up and walkin too, it was touch and go but yes it's nearly all come back to me as well over the years,hard work to here but I just lost the use of my right hand. A wee bit of a bummer cause I played the pipes. Och well, better than bein deed or in a wheelchair eh? I'm tryin the fiddle cause I can cram the bow wrapped in a load of foam intae ma paw. Life is good and we are the lucky ones. I first heard you when I lived near the isle of Skye I think in 1981. I was fish farming there. Yi know the Atlantic salmon gig. We were young eh? You have been my life's sountrack, we have grown together. The last time I saw you and the lads was "that" night in Albany. For all that "bug issue" you had, it was a brilliant night, it was community, really great it was. Thanks for the music first, but yir inspiration as well. Yir the best. Cheers lads. drew

You are each worth waiting for! I am of course particularly relieved that Bono is well and ready to get his groove on (Tampa '10 'ok Tampa! Let's see if we can get a groove going....') I love you guys and hope that you take a steady pace returning to the road with due care for each of your well being!

Keep singing!
And place Romania into your road... or any other country near us. Please!

Suggestion?
Just as a thought. If you guys are "planning" to extend you tour, St. John's, Newfoundland (Or even Halifax, Nova Scotia) would be a great addition to your North American Tour. Coming from an area just outside of St. John's, it would be marvelous to see people like you here. We don't usually get many "big" name stars. Just a thought. Thanks.

north american tour
Would U2 ever consider playing in Regina, Saskatchewan? Pleeeeeease do:) I know we have been trying to get you to. Ive signed a petition or two, put up by local radio stations to, "Bring U2 to Regina". The province of Sask. has a small population, but many,many U2 fans :) The Rolling Stones and ACDC have played here. Please come to Regina. Please :)

No Apology Necessary
If there weren't enough reasons to love you guys... The apology, while certainly appreciated, is not necessary. All I, and I know I'm not alone, care about is you, all of you, keeping yourselves safe + well. And please, Bono, if you aren't feeling well after the first few gigs, please don't continue on. To quote you, "Stay safe tonight" and every night for that matter. I want to thank each one of you, Larry, Adam, Edge, and Bono for the gift you've given to all of us here and there, near and far. You have been lifesavers more than once here in EsmeLand. Love to all of you, Esme

Walking before Running
Hi guys, Thrilled to hear that the recovery is going well, and Bono, it's fantastic to see you're in 1 piece and able to walk, at the end of the day, that really is the main thing. I had a disc prolapse and I don't know about you, but there was nothing better than coming outta that staring at the ceiling phase! Here's to a 'Magnificent' tour! Elli Melbourne, Australia

You're worth the wait!
Bono, I'm so glad that you are getting BACK to normal again :-) You (and the rest of the guys) look fabulous. thank you for the video; it was so thoughtful. Truly, you are worth the wait. Now I have an entire year to stay excited about seeing you. Can't tell you how much I've been listening to my U2 CDs lately. I'll continue to pray for your recovery. Praise God you are doing well!!! With love, Kelly from the USA (see you on July 14th, 2011!)

Love from Brazil !
We so happy that you Bono looks fine...Takes much care before return to the world tour show. Your health first. All your fans would wait for you as time it you needed. And stop to run in the show, man! When I see you in the 360 º DVD running around the stage, I think: "Wow! What a performance! Is he a athletic man?" We love U2 since 1986. All my important life moments had a U2 song in the backstage.. I'm a simple 48' years old rockgirl and my son (15 years) listened U2 since he was in my uterus. We wait U2 here in Brazil again! God bless the U2 guys!!

I'm So Happy
To see that your frontman is UP N AT'OM. As an ER nurse I know these injuries can be severe (altho specifics r unknown), a spine is crucial, I'm so happy to see that Bono is well.

Bummer
We were totally stoked about seeing this concert, it really was bad luck that Bono was crook. We are Aussies over in the USA with the military. Unfortunately we are sent home at the end of this year - so we will miss the 2011 rescheduled dates! ;[ Get Better soon Bono - your voice and talent of your band lift our spirits, unite people and deliver a strong message! Don't forget us all down under who support your cause and music! We would LOVE LOVE LOVE to see you pop on down for a concert or 2.....
