U2 Fans Freak Out After Bono Declares "We're Going Away Now"

We've got some "Bad" news for U2 fans: It wasn't a "Beautiful Day" when the legendary rock band closed out their most recent tour in Berlin on Tuesday night with frontman Bono hinting that the group may be ready for retirement. "We’ve been on the road for quite some time, just going on 40 years, and this last four years have been really something very special for us," the 58-year-old Bono declared in his typically "Mysterious Ways" before adding, "We’re going away now." Consequence of Sound notes that last month, Bono said in an interview, "I can’t do as much as I used to [and] I don’t take anything for granted...It's okay to acknowledge work you’ve done and give it respect, but if it’s the best we can do, then we’re not an ongoing concern." However, the respected U2 fan account @U2gigs tweeted Tuesday about Bono's cryptic announcement, "Every final gig is the same: mass panic that this is the last gig...Ten bucks says I'll be covering another gig with you folks sometime down the track. I will concede that this is the first time the mass panic has at least seemed plausible. But there'll be *something* for Boy at 40 or Achtung Baby at 30, or a new record. U2 won't sit still and they won't break up, and they've got enough years ahead of them yet to fit in more gigs!"
