Bono was treated for heart palpitations and chest pains at a hospital in Monaco on Wednesday and Thursday. The U2 frontman, who was on holiday in the south of France, spent some time at the Princess Grace Memorial Hospital, but was not kept overnight. The singer was examined by a top heart specialist and told to get some rest. Only one night later, he was seen relaxing at one of Moraco's most exclusive nightclubs.

Bono's heart scare comes only three weeks after U2 completed their massive 360 Tour, which occupied much of the group's time over the past two years. The band was forced to postpone several gigs last summer when Bono had to undergo emergency back surgery after injuring himself while training for the tour.
