U2′s Bono Goes to Hospital for Routine Checkup, Not Chest Pains

Last year, Bono‘s emergency back surgery in Germany had the U2 fan base worried about his welfare.

There was an entirely different kind of concern for Bono over the weekend, when reports circulated that he was treated for chest pains last week at a hospital in Monaco. U2 fans can rest easy, though: It was just a routine checkup, according to a spokeswoman for the 51-year-old singer.

“Despite press stories to the contrary, Bono has not suffered a recent health scare,” the statement read. “Reports of his being rushed to a hospital for emergency treatment are untrue. Bono is in good health and enjoying a family holiday in the south of France.”

With that all squared away, U2 followers can now focus their attention on the upcoming deluxe 20th-anniversary reissues of the ‘Achtung Baby’ album on Nov. 1.
