U2 is ready to go on tour to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the bands Joshua Tree album with a stop in Pasadena, CA on May 20. The tour will make stops in the US and Europe this year with the last show in Brussels.
U2: The Joshua Tree Tour 2017Â kicks off in Vancouver on 12th May for a run of dates across North America, and includes U2â€™s first ever U.S. festival headline appearance at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival.
The tour then moves to Europe with the first stop in London on 8th July, finishing up in Brussels on 1st August and taking in their hometown show in Croke Park on 22nd July.
Noel Gallagherâ€™s High Flying Birds will provide support across Europe, with Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers and One Republic joining the tour through North America.
â€œIt seems like we have come full circle from when The Joshua Tree songs were originally writtten, with global upheaval, extreme right wing politics and some fundamental human rights at risk,â€ reflects The Edge. â€œTo celebrate the album – as these songs seem so relevant and prescient of these times too – we decided to do these shows, it feels right for now. Weâ€™re looking forward to it.â€
â€œRecently I listened back toÂ The Joshua TreeÂ for the first time in nearly 30 years,â€ adds Bono. â€œItâ€™s quite an opera. A lot of emotions which feel strangely current, love, loss, broken dreams, seeking oblivion, polarisationâ€¦ all the greats… Iâ€™ve sung some of these songs a lotâ€¦ but never all of them. Iâ€™m up for it, if our audience is as excited as we areâ€¦ itâ€™s gonna be a great night. Especially when we play at home. Croke Park.. itâ€™s where the album was born, 30 years ago.â€
