Bono and Dave Grohl Are Canceling Shows for Losing Their Voices

September 4, 2018

Bono shut down a U2 concert in Berlin on Saturday after only a few songs because he was losing his voice. At first, he thought he only needed a 10- or 15-minute break, but then it was clear his voice was going to need more time than that. The next day, Bono said, quote, "I've seen a great doctor . . . [I'm] happy and relieved that anything serious has been ruled out." He said he expects to be "back to full voice" for the rest of the tour. The Berlin show has been rescheduled.

(Here's UNCENSORED video. Skip to four minutes in. Bono doesn't curse, but there's a lot of crowd noise.)

Meanwhile, the Foo Fighters rescheduled two upcoming Canadian shows because Dave Grohl lost his voice.  He joked, quote, "That's the last time I make out with Bono." 

Dave is on vocal rest, and they're planning to resume the tour this weekend in Vancouver.
