Bono's back surgery, which we mentioned yesterday without making any bad puns, has really taken a toll on U2's summer plans. The band has been forced to cancel their slot at Glastonbury, and they'e rescheduled 16 stadium shows. See the complete list after the jump.

According to the U2 site, Dr Muller Wohlfahrt confirmed: "Bono suffered severe compression of the sciatic nerve. On review of his MRI scan, [Dr. Wohlfahrt] realized there was a serious tear in the ligament and a herniated disc, and that conservative treatment would not suffice. [He] recommended Bono have emergency spine surgery".

Doctors are hoping for a speedy recovery.

The following dates had to be postponed:
6-03 Salt Lake City, UT - Rice Eccles Stadium
6-06 Anaheim, CA - Angel Stadium
6-07 Anaheim, CA - Angel Stadium
6-12 Denver, CO - Invesco Field
6-16 Oakland, CA - Oakland Coliseum
6-20 Seattle, WA - Qwest Field
6-23 Edmonton, Alberta - Commonwealth Stadium
6-25 Pilton, England - Glastonbury (CANCELLED)
6-27 Minneapolis, MN - TCF Bank Stadium
6-30 East Lansing, MI - Spartan Stadium
7-03 Toronto, Ontario - Rogers Centre
7-06 Chicago, IL - Soldier Field
7-09 Miami, FL - Sun Life Stadium
7-12 Philadelphia, PA - Lincoln Financial Field
7-16 Montreal, Quebec - Montreal Hippodrome
7-17 Montreal, Quebec - Montreal Hippodrome
7-19 New York, NY - New Meadowlands Stadium

More details as they arise. -joe
