No U2 In Chi in 2010

2009_03_30_u2.jpg Irish rock mega-ultra-super-star band U2 won't be making it to Chicago this summer, after all. The North American leg of their 2010 tour, including the July 6 show at Soldier Field, has been postponed until 2011 as front-man Bono continues to recover from emergency back surgery, required after he injured his back last week while preparing for the tour. No word yet on any make-up appearances in the US or if the injury will affect the band's European leg of the tour, kicking off in August.
