U2 Unveil ‘Joshua Tree 2017′ Tour Dates

U2 will spend the summer on the road celebrating the release of their watershed 1987 album The Joshua Tree by performing the entire LP in concert.

«Recently I listened back to The Joshua Tree for the first time in nearly 30 years,» Bono said in the tour announcement. «It’s quite an opera. A lot of emotions which feel strangely current, love, loss, broken dreams, seeking oblivion, polarization . all the greats. . I’ve sung some of these songs a lot . but never all of them. I’m up for it, if our audience is as excited as we are. . It’s gonna be a great night.»

«It seems like we have come full circle from when The Joshua Tree songs were originally written, with global upheaval, extreme right wing politics and some fundamental human rights at risk,» added guitarist the Edge. «To celebrate the album — as the songs seem so relevant and prescient of these times too — we decided to do these shows, it feels right for now. We’re looking forward to it.»

Tickets for the tour, which begins May 12 in Vancouver, go on sale for U2 subscribers Jan. 11; public sale is scheduled to start Jan. 16 in Europe and a day later in the United States. The tour’s North American leg, which features support from opening acts Mumford & Sons, the Lumineers and OneRepublic, includes an appearance at Bonnaroo — the band’s first-ever U.S. headlining performance.

As the Edge told Rolling Stone, the Tree dates give the band an opportunity to celebrate its storied past without curtailing its commitment to new music — which includes the impending release of Songs of Experience, an LP he says they temporarily held off on releasing so they could «make sure that it really was what we wanted to say.» That delay gave them an opportunity to reflect on a record many still view as their crowning achievement, and hear it in the context of current events.

«The two sort of coincided and we decided we were gonna do some shows. And we’ve never given ourselves the opportunity to celebrate our past because we’ve always as a band looked forward, but I think we felt that this was a special moment, and this was a very special record,» he added. «So we’re happy to take this moment to regroup and think about an album that’s so many years old, but still seems relevant.»

NEW YORK , Oct. 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — U2’s acclaimed The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 came to a triumphant close in Brazil tonight. As the only band ever to have played four successive shows at São Paulo’s Morumbi Stadium, U2 have smashed their own record for ticket sales in the city with over 280,000 Brazilian fans turning out to see the Dublin band in less than a week.

Having played to over 2.7 million fans in just 51 shows across North and South America , the UK and Europe , and Mexico , The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 is the most successful tour of the year.

The Joshua Tree Tour 2017, a celebration of the original album and tour of the same name undertaken by U2 in 1987, featured the complete Joshua Tree album played in sequence plus a selection of highlights from U2’s extensive catalogue of songs. The innovative staging included a new series of haunting and evocative films from Dutch photographer and film-maker Anton Corbijn – whose iconic photography accompanied the original recording — in brilliant 8k resolution on a 200 x 45 foot cinematic screen, the largest high-res LED screen every used in a touring show, behind the group in live performance.

The Joshua Tree Tour 2017, produced by Live Nation Global Touring, opened to rave reviews on May 12 th at BC Place in Vancouver and made its U.S. debut May 14th at CenturyLink Field in Seattle—the latter kicking off some of the most enthusiastic critical notes in the history of U2’s relationship with America. Rolling Stone hailed the band as «a live act simply without peer» and USA Today noted «Thirty years can’t dull searing music, hopeful lyrics or the captivating Irish band behind them.» The North American run featured 20 sold out stadium dates and U2’s first ever U.S. festival headline June 9th at Bonnaroo before «…the biggest band in the world» arrived in Europe to play Twickenham Stadium, London on 8 th July, a performance which «oozes contemporary confidence and command. They are totally in their element.» (5/5 stars – The Guardian). The sold out European run saw the Dublin band return home to play to 78,000 fans in Croke Park, almost 30 years to the day after the played the legendary Dublin venue on the original Joshua Tree tour. In September, the band hit the road again taking in dates in Mexico City , Buenos Aires , Santiago de Chile and São Paulo, as well as a historic first ever visit by U2 to Bogotá, Colombia for an unforgettable show at the city’s Estadio El Campin.

U2 The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 is produced by Live Nation Global Touring. UPS is the Official Logistics Provider of the tour.
