He required hours of surgery after what doctors called a “high-energy bicycle accident”.
Writing on the band’s website, Bono said: “Recovery has been more difficult than I thought. As I write this, it is not clear that I will ever play guitar again.”
He added that his bandmates “have reminded me that neither they nor Western civilisation are depending on this”.
Bono said he would “have to concentrate hard” to be ready for U2’s scheduled tour later this year.
