The band's guitarist The Edge provided fans with an update on the singer's current condition, saying that "he's doing OK," but compared his current physical state to the results of a "car crash."
Last month U2 frontman Bono sustained several severe injuries whilst cycling in New York's Central Park, which required five hours of surgery and caused the band cancel their weeklong residency on Jimmy Fallon's 'Tonight Show.' So how is the Irish singer doing several weeks later?

Bono's bandmate The Edge recently spoke with Los Angeles radio station KROQ to provide fans with an update on his condition, saying that "he's doing OK," but compared the injured star's current physical state to the results of a "car crash."
During the crash the 54-year-old singer broke several bones including a facial fracture in his left eye socket, three different fractures in his left shoulder blade and a fracture in the left upper arm, which shattered in six different places. Three metal plates and 18 screws were required while he was undergoing surgery.
"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," The Edge told the radio station. "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."
Bono was forced to miss the band's World AIDS Day performance earlier this week, and scheduled to play the radio station's Almost Acoustic Christmas concert, which he is "so upet" about, 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."
Have a speedy recovery!
