Bono is seeing a "great doctor" after losing his voice during U2's concert in Berlin on Saturday.

The band were in Germany's capital for the European leg of their 'eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour'. 

Bono was performing their hit single, 'Beautiful Day', when he told the crowd "something has happened and I think we can't go on". 

"I’m sure this is not a big problem but I’m gonna have to do something," he told concertgoers before suggesting a 10-minute break.

But the 58-year-old and his band members were unable to finish the show. According to a statement on U2's website, he suffered "a complete loss of voice'. 

“We don’t know what has happened and we’re taking medical advice," the statement read.

Bono has since seen a doctor and announced in a statement that U2's tour will go on.

“I’ve seen a great doctor and with his care, I’ll be back to full voice for the rest of the tour. So happy and relieved that anything serious has been ruled out. My relief is tempered by the knowledge that the Berlin audience were so inconvenienced. There was an amazing atmosphere in the house, it was going to be one of those unforgettable nights but not for this reason," he said in a statement.

U2 have promised to play another concert in Berlin in November to make up for the show they had to abruptly end.
