U2 frontman Bono underwent emergency back surgery Friday in Munich, forcing the band to cancel its headlining slot at Britain's iconic Glastonbury festival next month. The band will also postpone its upcoming North American tour until 2011.

Meantime, singer Christina Aguilera axed her summer tour today, saying she needs more time to prepare. She's been busy shooting her debut film, "Burlesque," and preparing her new album, "Bionic," due out June 8.
