Did Bono have a heart problem this last weekend?

The U-2 frontman, known for having a philanthropic heart, may have spent some time in a French hospital this last weekend over a bit of a scare related to his ticker.

According to the Irish newspaper The Independent, Bono, 51, was at dinner in Monaco Friday night with his wife Ali, singer Julian Lennon and fashion designer John Rocha. At some point in the middle of the dinner, Bono abruptly left the exclusive Saas Cafe and was rushed by his wife in their new Audi A8 to a nearby hospital, with friends in a Mercedes rapidly following close behind.

According to The Independent, Bono spent a number of hours at the hospital, was looked at “by a top heart specialist,” then released and told to “get plenty of rest.”

Bono’s heart-related scare followed a grueling world-wide tour. U-2 played in over 30 countries this last year, and Bono had recently returned to his villa in Eze-sur-Mer, an exclusive Monaco-based resort village and tax haven for the ultra-wealthy.

According to a spokesperson for Bono, the rushed drive in the middle of the evening was a “routine” visit, and that the singer was “in good health.”
