U2 Extending World Tour To Australia

Rocker BONO is making a speedy recovery after undergoing spinal surgery in May (10) - U2 have announced plans to extend their world tour to Australia.
The frontman was left with partial paralysis in his legs after he was diagnosed with a herniated disc and the group was forced to cancel a string of concerts.
Bono returned to the stage in Turin, Italy earlier this month (Aug10) just three months after his operation and now he's keen to tackle more shows - the band is taking its 360 Degree Tour Down Under at the end of the year (10).
The Beautiful Day hitmakers have scheduled gigs in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth in December (10). They will also make a stop in Auckland, New Zealand.
U2's manager Paul MCGuinness says in a statement, "U2 has always been at their best when surrounded by their audience, and this extraordinary production makes that happen in stadiums.
"It was important to the band that we were able to bring the whole 360 production to Australia and New Zealand so fans could experience the latest of U2's legendary productions."
