Bono ready to hit the road

Updated:

U2 singer Bono says he's ready to get back on the road after a serious back injury in May.

Bono underwent emergency back surgery at a hospital in Munich two months ago, but in a video posted on u2.com, bono says he's ready to rock and roll again.

"I'm very well, Thank you. Yes I can sit. I can stand. I can move around a bit. Feeling strong, feeling confident, you know what I'm saying. And I'm ready, rebuilt by German engineering, better design I'm told and I'll be fighting fit next year in the U.S., looking forward to this summer in Europe," Bono said. "And I really wanted to actually apologize for the trouble that this injury has put you all through, those of you who bought tickets, organized hotels and travel plans. It's a very big deal and people go through a lot of trouble to get U2 tickets and we don't take it for granted. Thank you for standing by us in our hour of need."

The injury forced U2 to cancel its entire sold-out North American tour this summer, but now those dates have been rescheduled for May through July of next year.
