U2 Postpones Tonight Show Residency U2 was set to do its week-long residency on the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this week, but those plans are now on hold. A post from the band on their website reads, "It looks like we will have to do our Tonight Show residency another time - we're one man down. Bono has injured his arm in a cycling spill in Central Park and requires some surgery to repair it. We're sure he'll make a full recovery soon, so we'll be back! Much thanks to Jimmy Fallon and everyone at the show for their understanding." It's unclear when the group will return to The Tonight Show.
