U2 Back On The Road

Bono appeared to be in good form Friday during the U2 concert in Turin, Italy Friday (8/6) that marked the lead singer's return from serious back surgery (story). The concert before a packed Olympic Stadium crowd roared to life with Beautiful Day and included two new songs, North Star Acoustic and Glastonbury.  The Irish rockers were forced to pull out of the headline slot at the Glastonbury Festival after Bono sustained the injury that required him to have emergency surgery in Germany.  He revealed that the recovery from the operation was so painful that he agreed to take morphine while in the hospital, saying the narcotic came with some unwelcome side effects.  '...I did strange things. I always wanted ice cream. I drank. I even started smoking again.'  The lead singer looked fit and limber during the set, during which he expressed appreciation to his bandmates for their patience, understanding and support while he was laid up.
