A SPOKESWOMAN FOR U2 frontman Bono has denied reports that he was rushed to hospital in Monaco after suffering chest pains on a recent holiday.
Yesterday’s Sunday Independent had reported that the 51-year-old singer was taken to the Princess Grace Memorial Hospital in Monaco after experiencing heart palpitations.
Today the band’s publicist denied the reports, saying the singer had not suffered a health scare.
“Reports of his being rushed to hospital for emergency treatment are untrue,” Sky News quoted the statement as saying. “Bono is in good health and enjoying a family holiday in the south of France.”
While Bono – real name Paul Hewson – had visited the hospital, it was for a routine check-up, she said.
The singer suffered health problems earlier this year when a back injury forced U2 to delay some of its 360° tour – including a headline slot at Glastonbury.
