    On Saturday, U2 was forced to cut short its concert in Berlin, Germany after Bono suffered what was described as “a complete loss of voice.” The band had just finished playing “Beautiful Day”, when Bono halted the concert and informed the audience that he “cannot go on.”

    The U2 frontman visited a doctor on Sunday and, fortunately, he received a good prognosis. “I’ve seen a great doctor and with his care I’ll be back to full voice for the rest of the tour,” Bono said in a statement. “So happy and relieved that anything serious has been ruled out.”

    “My relief is tempered by the knowledge that the Berlin audience were so inconvenienced,” Bono added. “There was an amazing atmosphere in the house, it was going to be one of those unforgettable nights but not for this reason… We can’t wait to get back there on November 13th.”
