New Dates
Hi guys, I am so happy that Bono is well again and that you rescheduled the North American dates. But have a little headache from the new date - the old date was on Saturday which was great for somebody who got the general admission ticket, the new date in Toronto is on Monday, which makes it very complicated plus my friends with 2 babies are seriously thinking to return the tickets because they will have really hard time to find babysitting for the kids. My friend is BIG fan of yours so we are now talking on the phone because the tickets might be return till the begining of August 2010 and who know what will be in July 2011. Wish you all the best! Thank you for all you do.

wow ! jUST TAKE IT EASY
Great news guys and thank you for the personal update for all your fans. Bono please be absolutely fit before you hit the road again, you had a serious problem, and speaking from experience of the same, dont rush it, however bad you've felt over all of this, I am sure we would all like Bono 100% than a relapse situation. But knowing you, you'll fight that. Just take care, and the rest of you love to you all from the UK.Look after him.xxxx

The timing was perfect.....
I was extremly disappointed when I heard the TO concert was cancelled but at the same time releaved because I would have missed it because I was out with my back for 3 weeks during that time. I'm glad to hear that your coming next year in July. Last year was spectacular and I can't wait to be apart of next years tour again!! You guys never disappoint and wish you all the best!!! Forever Fan for over 20yrs

So glad the recovery went well and no apology was needed. Just wish didn't have to wait a whole year for the rescheduled ny show. Saw the tribute band 2u this month. Fun but can't compare. I was taking my brother to this show for his 40th bday so I told him he just has to stay 39 a little longer. He took me to the show last sept for my bday. We just miss u2! Stay well!

The line is on the horizon again
I'm so happy that Bono has recouvered from the surgery! I am a U2's follower since 1985. U2 gave me the "line on the horizon" since I was a teenager. I grew up listening and translating the lyrics - the most beautiful poems I have ever read. I admire the way you are changing the world. I believe we can turn the world into a better place if we want to. I believe we can end poverty if we want to. I believe... Please, go on. The world needs you too much. GOD BLESS U2.

Loved the video message!
Love seeing the guys so relaxed and playful. "Promiscuous"...Good one, Larry! I heard the BBC Players podcast of The Edge with Muse at Glastonbury and it blew me away! I could see the twinkle in Bono's eyes, even with the shades. When Bono talked about being rebuilt by German engineering it took me back to "The Six Million Dollar Man"... Fade in to the surgical suite. Voice over by the lead surgeon: We have Bono, singer. A man barely mobile. Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic frontman. Bono will be that man. Yes, I'm being a bit daft, but I'll bet I wasn't the only one thinking the same thing when he said it.

Very exciting!!
Thank you so much for the video, guys! Bono...so great to see you up and around in such a short time. Make sure you take enough time to really heal well and don't over do it! Larry, your great on the video but I really love you best behind those drums....absolutely awesome! Adam, keep on playing that bass just as great as you do and keep everyone in line...haha! Last but certainly not least, Edge...what can I say to such an awesome guitar/keyboard player except that you are exceptional! All of you are exceptional and truly blessed with your talents and abilities! I absolutely love you guys! I can't wait to see you in Oakland!!!!! Take care and best wishes!

They are the Best!!!
What a great video, it makes me feel like they are my friends and not big rock stars. They let us see they are so real. Shooting it themselves vs. having s press conference....so intimate. Bono looks great, better than ever. Hope my 3 dates work out for me. They are more split apart and I have to travel a good distance, but I'm going to do my best. Going to 3 shows was my '50' birthday present. I didn't want to spend it any other way. Thanks U2!!

Yes!
I'm so happy that everyone is doing okay in the band! I do agree with Larry, U2 does have the best singer, I love you Bono! It was nice to see everyone in the video especially Bono! Thank you so much for getting the dates out, I'm really excited! My parents also got me the U2 360 at the Rose Bowl for my birthday to hold me over! Can't wait until you guys come to Salt Lake!

50 Never Looked Better
So glad for Bono's recovery, and I must say he makes 50 look terrific! I saw the show at the Meadowlands in 9/09,(I'm also a Fordham alum, so that makes me a double winner!) and it was one of the highlights of my year! Blessings to the band and all the crew, safe travel, and I look forward to new music soon. xokate

Very happy to see Bono up and about and
Thank you for the video message. It was a relief to see you all together and well. I am so glad that Bono is making such a successful recovery from such a serious injury. As far as I am concerned there is no need for apology for rescheduled dates. After all Bono gives to the world the only thing I ask of him is to keep up the great recuperation. Continued best wishes.

It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time - we're one man down. Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We're sure he'll make a full recovery soon, so we'll be back! Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding.
