Bono Rides a Bike for the First Time Since His Accident – with a Little Help from Jimmy Fallon
Bono and U2 were supposed to be opening-week guests when Jimmy Fallon took over the Tonight Show last November, but those plans were cancelled after the Irish singer was seriously injured in a bike accident while riding through New York’s Central Park.
But on Friday night, the Grammy winner and humanitarian got back on a bike for the first time since his accident, and joined Fallon in a sketch that poked fun at the crash that left him with serious injuries including a facial fracture, three fractures of his shoulder blade and a fractured left arm.
In addition to the sketch, Bono and the band performed their hit “Beautiful Day” and their latest, “Song for Someone,” on The Tonight Show. And in a web exclusive posted on the show’s website, they performed “Angel of Harlem” with The Roots.
