There was a report in the Sunday Independent newspaper claiming that Bono was rushed to a hospital in Monaco suffering from chest pains, but the 51-year-old U2 frontman and his people were quick to deny the story, saying that Bono visited the hospital for a routine checkup only.

Bono and his family have been vacationing in the south of France, where they own a home, after U2’s massively successful but grueling world tour ended last month.  Naturally he’s feeling tired, but that’s about all.

"Despite press stories to the contrary, Bono has not suffered a recent health scare," a U2 spokeswoman said. "Reports of his being rushed to hospital for emergency treatment are untrue. Bono is in good health and enjoying a family holiday in the south of France."
