Bono is going to be stuck in a moment he can't get out of--a painful one.

The U2 singer injured his arm in a Central Park bike accident, forcing the band to cancel its weeklong residency at "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon."

Bono will need surgery on his arm, the band said on its website.

"We're sure he'll make a full recovery soon, so we'll be back," read a message from the Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr.

This is the second strange incident for Bono in a week. While the singer was flying aboard a private plane from Dublin to Berlin last week, a rear luggage door fell off the plane in the air, a German travel official said. Bono landed safely in Berlin, and the incident is under investigation.
