U2 was scheduled to perform on “The Tonight Show” from Monday to Friday. The band helped Fallon launch the late-night show in February as his first musical guest.
“It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time – we’re one man down,” the band said on its website in a message signed by members The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr.
Bono, 54, “has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We’re sure he’ll make a full recovery soon, so we’ll be back!” the band said.
The website did not give details about the incident or the injury.
Bono suffered a spinal injury in 2010 while preparing for a tour and underwent emergency surgery in Germany. The injury delayed part of the tour.
