VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — 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.
The New York Times quotes Bono as saying while 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 14.
