2 have sensationally been forced to quit their headline appearance at the Glastonbury Festival as frontman Bono is forced to spend at least two months recuperating from spinal surgery.
Bono left hospital in Germany on Tuesday after undergoing emergency surgery on his back, and has been advised to recuperate for the next two months.
The U2 frontman said in a statement released on the Glastonbury website: ‘I’m heartbroken. We really wanted to be there to do something really special – we even wrote a song especially for the Festival.’
The frontrunners to replace U2 are Dizzee Rascal, who was already set to play before U2 at Glastonbury on the Friday evening.
And according to The Sun, festival organiser Michael Eavis has also put in a call to Chris Martin to check Coldplay’s availability.
This morning Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page indicated in an interview with BBC Radio 6 that he wouldn’t rule out an appearance.
