How Much Does Bono’s Back Cost?

cbsbono2 How Much Does Bonos Back Cost?

As people grow older, back pains become more and more common. But for [lastfm]U2[/lastfm] frontman [lastfm]Bono[/lastfm] – or, more accurately, his insurers – a back pain mysteriously turned into a wallet-ache. How much did insurance brokerage Robertson Taylor have to dole out to compensate for [lastfm]Bono[/lastfm]’s bad back? We’ll tell you…after the jump!

The back injury that kept [lastfm]U2[/lastfm] out of the Glastonbury festival and forced the rock gods to cancel the US leg of the “U2 360″ tour, cost Robertson Taylor $17 million.

By comparison, Steve Austin cost $6 million…and he was bionic!

As we told you last week, [lastfm]U2[/lastfm] topped last year’s Forbes list of highest paid rock stars. With the [lastfm]U2[/lastfm] cancellations, including scheduled stops in Anaheim, costing upward of $150 million, however, odds are against the Irish rockers repeating the feat in 2011.

[lastfm]U2[/lastfm] sets off on the European leg of “U2 360″ on August 6th in Italy.

Take a listen to this listener that called into Jack Fm, to join the PhonerKaraoke. This Guy really loves U2!
