London: U2 rocker Bono has made a comeback on stage - three months after he was forced to undergo emergency back surgery.
The Irish band had to reschedule the North American trek of its world tour and cancel major gig in the Glastonbury festival in June after Bono was admitted to hospital for the operation in May.
However, the 50-year-old has recovered in time to kick off the band`s European leg of its 360 Degree Tour in northern Italy.
Moreover, the health issue has doesn`t seem to affect his performance, strutting, dancing and jogging around the stage.
Bono thanked fans for their firm support and for the well wishes he`d received during his recovery, while he also paid tribute to his bandmates.
"This band is like a family. It`s a family business, U2. I am the prodigal son. I would like to thank my brothers for their patience," a news daily quoted Bono as telling the crowd.
