U2 to return to The Tonight Show

U2 will return to The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon this Friday, May 8.

"You heard that right!,” tweeted Fallon. “U2 will be back on the show.”

The appearance marks the group’s return to the NBC late night program since they were forced to postpone a week-long residency following a serious bicycle accident involving Bono in Central Park last November.

While attempting to avoid another rider, the singer suffered a series of injuries including a facial fracture involving the orbit of his eye, three separate fractures of his left shoulder blade, and a fracture of his left humerus bone in his upper arm, which shattered the bone in six different places; doctors repaired the bone with three metal plates and 18 screws.

The U2 frontman has spent the past six months in physiotherapy and was placed under doctors' orders to refrain from performing until he has fully recuperated.

U2 will launch their “Innocence + Experience” tour in support of “Songs Of Innocence” in Vancouver, BC on May 14.
