The band's frontman Bono injured his back on Friday, according to a report on the group's website, and their upcoming tour is being rescheduled for 2011.

Bono underwent emergency surgery in Munich, and he's said to be recovering well. His doctor said, "This surgery was the only course of treatment for full recovery and to avoid further paralysis. Bono is now much better, with complete recovery of his motor deficit. The prognosis is excellent but to obtain a sustainable result, he must now enter a period of rehabilitation."

That means eight weeks of rehab to get back to 100 percent -- minimum.

The band had scheduled 16 shows between June 3 and July 19, going from Salt Lake City to New Jersey. A Live Nation spokesperson said, "Although we understand the disappointment to U2 fans, first and foremost comes the recovery of Bono."
