U2 Show Canceled Mid-Set When Bono Suffers ‘Complete Loss of Voice’

U2’s show on Saturday, September 1st in Berlin, Germany ended in the middle of their set when frontman Bono suffered a sudden “complete loss of voice.” The official cause of his voice-loss has yet to be revealed. When playing “Beautiful Day” the singer’s condition worsened and he eventually stopped the music and apologized to the crowd, saying they would take a break; however the band never returned to the stage. Early on Sunday, Sept. 2nd the three remaining members of the band released a statement on U2’s website: “we’re so sorry for tonight’s cancellation.  Bono was in great form and great voice prior to the show and we were all looking forward to the second night in Berlin, but after a few songs, he suffered a complete loss of voice. We don’t know what has happened and we’re taking medical advice. As always, we appreciate our audience’s understanding and all our fans’ support in Berlin and those who travelled from afar. We will update you very soon. Adam, Larry and Edge”
