A new interview in the New York Times checks in with U2 as they prepare for a series of arena shows. However, Bono says he is still healing from his bike crash in New York last year. Most of his remaining injuries are in his left hand and forearm, and still cannot play guitar. “It feels like I have somebody else’s hand,” he said, adding that his forearm and elbow are "all numb" and titanium, adding that "The shoulder’s better, the face is better.”

The feature also gives a look into the setup for U2's next tour. The band is aiming to play two sets, with an intermission. The first set would essentially be identical each night, with changes in the second set. A triple platform stage has been built, with the sound system fixed to the ceiling rather than the traditional placement around the stage.

Their now-infamous iTunes release of last year's Song Of Innocence was discussed as well. Bono's longtime friend and collaborator Gavin Friday is involved in the production of the tour and told the Times, "The way the album was released, Apple overshadowed the whole thing, so the album was never really listened to. I was told to make the song really real.”

U2's Innocence + Experience Tour begins in Vancouver, British Columbia on May 14, with dates set well into November around the world. In a recently recorded interview, Bono revealed that U2 is planning to play their homeland of Ireland around Christmastime.
