Buzz 19:31PM EDT

Between the widespread criticism against the free iTunes release of their latest album, 'Songs of Innocence.' and Bono's unfortunate biking accident in New York City, U2 couldn't seem to catch a break this past year, and following a controversial music video shoot last week, matters have only gotten worse.

U2's The Edge on Bono's Cycling Injuries: 'He Basically Can’t Move for the Next Couple of Months'

Buzz 13:54PM EDT

Bono's injuries from a recent cycling accident were pretty bad. The U2 frontman had multiple surgeries after breaking some bones last month. That resulted in the band rescheduling their planned residency on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon," and Bono had to sit out on the World AIDS Day performance earlier this week. The Edge spoke with Los Angeles radio station KROQ to update fans about the singer's condition. "He managed to come out of it with what you can only describe as injuries from a car crash, literally multiple fractures of bones in his elbow and his back," he said. "But he's doing OK. We're kind of lucky he was wearing a helmet, so he didn't actually break Central Park. He's made of tough stuff and he's bouncing back." U2 was originally scheduled to play the radio station's Almost Acoustic Christmas concert, but they had to back out after Bono's accident. The singer is "so upset" about that, Edge noted. "He's been told by his doctors to stay put. He's back in Dublin right now and he basically can't move for the next couple of months," he added. "The poor guy, basically his left elbow was shattered, so a lot of the work was reconstructing the joints and putting in wires and plates. He actually showed us some X-rays a couple days later, it looked like a miniature Eiffel Tower."READ MORE

The Edge and Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen, Chris Martin Perform with U2 at World AIDS Day Concert: The Boss Sings 'Joshua Tree' Classics [WATCH]

Buzz 13:20PM EDT

It is not an easy task to fill in for an iconic frontman like Bono on epics like "Where the Streets Have No Name" and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" from U2's "The Joshua Tree," but leave it to Bruce Springsteen to make it look easy. The Boss joined the band onstage last night, Dec. 1, for the A (RED) Thank You concert. Bono could not make the World AIDS Day performance due to a recent bicycle accident, but Springsteen and Coldplay's Chris Martin were quick to help. Kanye West and Carrie Underwood also performed. Had Springsteen decided to where some shades, he would have looked just like the Irish frontman. The Boss strolled out on stage during The Edge's shimmering guitar intro to "Where the Streets Have No Name" and looked supremely confident. Springsteen brought a little of that hardened, New-Jersey grit to the Joshua Tree hit. The band opted for another classic from the 1987 album with "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," which Springsteen dedicated to Bono. Both performances were superb. Check them out in the video below. Former President Bill Clinton introduced U2 with Martin. They ran through 2000's "Beautiful Day" and 1987's "With or Without You."READ MORE
