Bono will start the U2 tour without the full use of his hands. Bono was in a bike accident in November that fractured his eye socket, shoulder, elbow and left hand. Bono sayswhile his shoulder and face are better, he feels like he has someone else’s hand. He can’t bend two of his fingers, and he has numbness in his forearm. He says he can’t play guitar but he adds with a grin his bandmates “don’t seem to mind.” The tour starts in Vancouver on May 14th. U2 opens its ” Innocence and Experience Tour ” at Rogers arena in Vancouver May 14 th and 15th.
What most Americans see as U2 drummer Larry Mullen Junior hugging his son, a Russian lawmaker sees as gay propaganda. Russian parliament member Alexander Starovoitov is appealing to prosecutors to determine whether the cover of the U2 album, “Songs of Innocence” promotes gay lifestyle. The cover shows both men shirtless and Mullen hugging his son around the waist. U2 have not commented on the story.
