Bono uses film to reveal Glastonbury frustration

U2 frontman Bono has revealed his frustration at cancelling last year's Glastonbury performance by releasing a video filmed at his hospital bed.

The singer, who is due to play the rescheduled show at the festival tomorrow, was forced to pull out in 2010 with just a month to go after a back injury which involved surgery.

Now the Irish superstar has posted a short clip online showing him as he lay groggy in his bed in Munich, Germany, after the operation talking about his "disappointment" at pulling the show.

In it he says: "This is not very rock and roll. This is a different kind of rehab.

"They've explained to me that apparently I'm not indestructible. The drugs by the way are very good," he says in the film, on the band's website.

"U2's never played Glastonbury - I was really looking forward to it. I actually cannot believe this has happened."
