Celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of its 1987 release, it's the ultimate collector's edition of The Joshua Tree.

A live recording of The Joshua Tree Tour from Madison Square Gardens in 1987, b-sides from the original singles and new remixes from Daniel Lanois, St Francis Hotel, Jacknife Lee, Steve Lillywhite and Flood form part of this special edition of The Joshua Tree.

Set for a June 2nd release, it will also feature an 84-page hardback book of unseen personal photography shot by The Edge during the original Mojave Desert photo session in 1986. "When I see the people we were back then,” writes Edge, in his introduction. "I see a bunch of pilgrims on a journey towards some kind of creative home. I think that really does capture the spirit of the band at that time.” What does The Joshua Tree mean to you ?

Check the full tracklisting and special content on all 30th anniversary formats below.

The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 opens in Vancouver on 12th May, kicking off a run of stadium dates across North America and Europe, including U2’s first ever U.S. festival headline appearance at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival this summer. More here

Tommy Lee Jones opened me to U2 and The
That title probably seems strange. After seeing Jones' performance in The Fugitive in the 90s, he rapidly became one of my two favorite actors, leading me to watch movies from throughout his career, including Blown Away. In Blown Away he plays an Irish bomb-maker set on taking revenge on the protagonist, a bomb-defuser played by Jeff Bridges. During the movie, while watching Bridges, Jones' buys a U2 cassette of The Joshua Tree from a lady selling it on the street. He says to her "U who?" And she says "U2! The Irish Band..." During the rest of the movie, the album is featured as Jones' listens to it, and even sings along to it near the end. Of course I then sought after this album myself and eventually obtained it. Then it began. U2 became my favorite band. I knew of U2 before Blown Away, but I never really listened or paid attention before. U2 is the only musical artist I can listen to indefinitely without ever getting tired of it (I've tested this). My education in film has made me involuntarily knit pick movies apart, and I always find problems with everything, except The Fugitive. It's perfect, and so is Tommy Lee Jones' performance in it. Well deserved of his Oscar for it. That led me to Blown Away. That led me to U2's The Joshua Tree, which led me to other music, videos, interviews, U2360, clothing... and now the 30th anniversary of The Joshua Tree Tour that just came and went from Pittsburgh, my city. My favorite song on the album is Bullet the Blue Sky, and it was outstanding- equally so was Exit. U2 is eternal. Thank you, gentlemen, including Tommy Lee.

Just received the JT box set in the mail and it's amazing! Everything inside it awesome! Then today I got the black t-shirt (with the gold Joshua tree) in the mail. It's such a great shirt, can't wait to wear it to my next show.

Under a desert sky
Seeing the boys both nights at the Rose Bowl was magical. Having two of my favorite people in the world join me for the shows was also very special. "Bad" brought me to tears and the guitar sounds the Edge produced on "Bullet" and other songs were unbelievable.

It is said that the negotiations are already 90% for it to be the first time they come to Lima, hopefully since it will in fact be SOLD OUT

EXCEPCIONAL - MAGNIFICENT
Hello, I'm a suspect to say something about U2, because I'm a Vox Bono Performer in Brazil and I've had U2 cover band since 1990 ... I hope I can have all of this in my hands .. abs and U2 live !!!

Rose Bowl
Looking forward to both shows at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena. I am hoping that U2 will play 'Silver and Gold' as well as 'Desire' during the show, as they both speak, along with the entire Joshua Tree Album, to the complete insanity that we are witnessing globally right now.

New Jersey!
I went to my first U2 concert when I was 15 years old, the Joshua Tree tour. It was impossible to get tickets. I won a pair on Z-100. I loved seeing them come out to the red background to Where the Streets Have No Name and love how you see red for that song hinting it's about to come on. Now I'm 45 and seeing this tour again (must have seen them 50 times in between). So excited. Seeing it with my family on the first night in New Jersey. Then on the second night I was able to get a red zone ticket. I can't wait. Was never that close before!!!!!!! ❤

May 14th show in Seattle
Hello, I was wondering if you all could perform "Kite". My mother just passed away on March 25th and that song means so much to me at this time. It will be a hard day since it'll be the first Mother's Day without her.

The Unforgettable Fire
I have been an admirer of U2 since I was 15, am now 47, with a 23 year old son on the autism spectrum. He is my greatest accomplishment, as he has few symptoms that remain Music helped to engage his curiosity and was instrumental in pulling him out of his prison. I passed on his love for your music as he is a huge fan of the entire band, and Brian Eno as well. Would love to.be there at one of your shows, but isn't that simple for us. I will be there in spirit and promise myself to bring him another year. It is one of my dreams to see you in person sometime. Have a great tour, and God bless you and all of your loved ones.

running to stand to still
I have been running to stand still for a long time, like many of us...I hope to hear that song in tampa, florida and in many other cities. I can't wait to connect to songs about Iris..Iris is a memory and song and a flower and a star for me. Please sing it!!

Happy birthday
I've been a fan from the beginning and the news of the 30th anniversary concert and goodies made my day. I bought the original JT album and went to the concert I then bought the 20th anniversary addition, I've not been able to decide on the super delux vinyl or super delux cd sets so I've bought both! I have also got my tickets for the London shows. The Joshua tree has been and big part of my life, I've even got it tattooed on my leg! Looking forward to the summer

The Joshua Tree: Cover picture that got
There are very few things in life which you think of and it ALWAYS returns that joy of life. One Tree Hill is so charismatic that when I was 21 and suffered so much from Asthma, I used to simply play One Tree Hill cassette on my old tape recorder. My breadth calmed down, filled my heart with new hope, with hope that life isn't that bad. It gave me strength. People around me thought I was somewhat crazy to hear a song like that and feel that I am getting alright. Years passed over, my hairs now started greying out. But each time when I feel like being alone, Running to stand still comes to my mind, Bono's voice, so honestly echoing the common man's struggle to survive. Three chords and the truth..... the book I brought and embraced it. Music, so true so honest, so simple yet so charismatic. I don't know how this planet would have looked like without U2.

A Masterpiece
I was a late bloomer fan for U2. When Achtung Baby was released, it just blew me away. Such a lush sound, amazing. So I went backwards to the beginning. I knew the hits from TJT but I was now hearing it with new ears. It is a seminal point for the band and I congratulate them on its 30 year anniversary!

Don't Forget Pop
We will see a 20th anniversary Pop release? I've been a fan for over 33 years, first single I bought was New Year's Day...but Pop is actually one of my favourite U2 albums. I love that they weren't afraid to experiment. I would love if U2 gave this great album more recognition. Hopefully we'll see a nod to this great album soon and more of these songs added to the live shows. See you in Dublin boys☺

Madison Square Garden show being release
U2 played 2 nights on the North American tour, is this from one night or a mix of the two nights? September 28th and 29th. Thanks for letting us know. Cheers

Amazing album... I would like to sample.
I would like to sample the new remixes. I have the previous anniversary box set, which is great. Also maybe more out takes from Rattle & Hum coming? Maybe a full concert? Please, please, please.

Not the full show
I wish they would have included the whole New York show.....and this is not even a rights issue like C'mon Everybody missing from the Paris show. They cut Bad and Spanish Eyes. I just wish this band, my favorite for decades now, would just do like many bands do and release concerts via digital download.

I just want the shirt.
Love the album, but... I just like the shirt with the Golden Joshua Tree. Will you be selling it without pairing it with the CD?
