Los Angeles: U2 frontman Bono reportedly takes his own bed on tour with him so that he doesn`t aggravate his back, which was operated on in 2010.

The U2 rocker has played during several shows worldwide with his band, but as he suffers from back problems, he decided on his last tour to have the bed from his home in Ireland transported to all of the locations he was visiting, reports

A popular tour manager from the US, Stuart Ross, told The Sun newspaper: “I know somebody whose job it was to drive Bono`s bed from hotel to hotel on the last tour. Bono wanted to sleep in his own bed every night.

“So instead of being able to fly him, I assume, back to Dublin, there was a bed that was in a Ryder (rental) truck and they loaded it into the hotel.”
