Bono Bike Accident Throws Spoke in 'Tonight Show' Gig

Bono was injured during a bike accident in New York's Central Park on Sunday that will require surgery, forcing the U2 frontman and his band mates to miss an appearance on "The Tonight Show" with Jimmy Fallon.

U2 posted a statement on its website Sunday about its change in schedule.

"It looks like we will have to do our 'Tonight Show' residency another time – we're one man down," read the statement from Edge, Adam and Larry. "Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We're sure he'll make a full recovery soon, so we'll be back! Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding."

The website, though, didn't give any details on the accident or where Bono, whose real name is Paul David Hewson, was treated, according to the New York Post.

Bono's bicycle accident follows another incident last week in Germany when the singer was in peril after a door of his private jet flew off in midflight while traveling from Ireland to Germany to meet with officials to discuss Ebola and attend the Bambi Awards.

The rear door of Bono's Learjet 60 reportedly fell off without the knowledge of the singer or his crew until they landed in Germany, noted the Daily Mail.

"When they landed they were horrified to learn that the compartment at the rear of the place had completely detached," a source told the Daily Mail. "The entire door along with Bono and his companions' luggage had fallen out mid-air. They don't know if the door and the contents landed over water or land, but they were extremely lucky."

The German Federal Bureau of Aircraft Accident Investigation officials told ABC News last week they were investigating why the door malfunctioned.

"The Learjet lost a door where the luggage was put in," said German aircraft investigative spokesman Germout Freitag. "There can be many reasons for this incident. Either something broke on the door or the door wasn't closed properly. Those are the usual problems that occur."
