U2 star cancels tours to rest|

(Irish Mirror via YouTwo.net) -- U2 have ditched plans for concerts in Europe this summer because Bono is exhausted.
I can reveal that the band have decided to stay in the recording studio instead
and give their lead singer a break from his gruelling schedule. The rockers were
set to perform a number of one-off outdoor concerts including a show in Belfast.
But after months of touring and jetting around the world on humanitarian missions
Bono has been ordered to take it easy for a while.
A group insider said: "There's only so much that any human being can do and
Bono needs some time off.
"In the last month alone he has been in America, Africa, Ireland and the UK.
"He wants to spend some time with his family.
"The summer concerts were never set in stone so it's not as if they have to make
any big cancellations.
"They have had a meeting and decided it would be better to go back into the studio
and write new material."
U2 have performed over 100 concerts in the past year.
The star has already written six songs for the new album and material could be
released by November.
Fans were hoping for more live concerts this summer after the huge success of the
But U2 manager PAUL McGUINNESS confirmed the concerts wouldn't go ahead.
He added: "They will not be touring Europe this summer. Instead they are spending
their time in the studio working on new material for a possible release later this year."
Last month THE EDGE hinted that they would stage a concert in Belfast after missing
the city on the Elevation world tour.
He said: "We would love to do a show there if we can get a big promoter behind it. It's
a definite possibility."
