U2 lead singer Bono had emergency surgery on his back in a Munich hospital on Friday after being injured while preparing for the next leg of a world tour, the first date of which has been postponed.

The 50-year-old from Ireland had been getting ready for the North American leg of the “360 Degree” world tour which had been due to kick off in Salt Lake City on June 3, according to a statement first released to Reuters.

Any lengthy disruption would be a blow both to fans and to Live Nation, the concert company which has a major deal to handle U2’s merchandising, digital and branding rights as well as touring.
