The band will be out on the road again this summer celebrating the 30th anniversary of The Joshua Tree and performing the album in full, every night. In July the tour brings them home to Croke Park in Dublin, 30 years after the original Joshua Tree Tour’s two memorable shows at the Dublin venue in June 1987.

U2: The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 kicks off in Vancouver on 12th May for a run of dates across North America, and includes U2’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 Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will provide support across Europe, with Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers and One Republic joining the tour through North America.

“It 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,” reflects The Edge. “To 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. We’re looking forward to it.”

“Recently I listened back to The Joshua Tree for the first time in nearly 30 years,” adds Bono. “It’s quite an opera. A lot of emotions which feel strangely current, love, loss, broken dreams, seeking oblivion, polarisation… 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. Especially when we play at home. Croke Park.. it’s where the album was born, 30 years ago.”

Tickets for U2: The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 are on sale Monday, January 16th in Ireland, the UK and Europe and on Tuesday, January 17th in the US and Canada. Ticket prices start at €35.00 / £35.00 / $35.00 with general admission floor tickets at  €70.00 / £70.00  / $70.00.

As usual, there is an exclusive priority presale for subscribers from Wednesday, January 11th (9am) through Friday, January 13th (5pm) local times. Tickets will be general admission on the floor and reserved seating in the stands. There will be a 4 ticket limit for subscriber purchases and a 6 ticket limit commencing with public sales.

Released to universal acclaim on March 9th 1987 and featuring hit singles “With Or Without You”,“I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” and “Where The Streets Have No Name”, The Joshua Tree went to No. 1 in Ireland and around the world selling in excess of 25 million copies and catapulting Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr “… from heroes to superstars” (Rolling Stone).

Time Magazine put U2 on its cover in April 1987, proclaiming them “Rock’s Hottest Ticket” in a defining year for the band that saw their arena dates roll into stadium shows to accommodate escalating demand - setting them on course to become one of the greatest live acts in the world today.

The 12 months that followed saw the band create now-iconic moments: the traffic-stopping Grammy Award-winning music video on the roof of a Los Angeles liquor store, winning a BRIT Award and two Grammys - including Album of the Year - their first of 22 received to date, distinguishing U2 as the most awarded rock band in Grammy history; as well as a triumphant return home with the original Joshua Tree Tour for four unforgettable shows in Belfast, Dublin and Cork in the summer of 1987.

In 1987 Hot Press called The Joshua Tree “their most influential album yet”. As for this tour? Noel Gallagher says, “It will be both a pleasure and an honour to play my part in what still remains the greatest show on earth.”

Boston tix. General Admission
Will wrist bands be issued for GA people as in the past? You should do a lottery like you did for "The heart". I did buy RedZone for the last tour and would again, but was not able to access them :( I like the lottery system for getting up close, or at least wristbands as it is hard to wait inline all day, even for a hardcore fan like myself

The Refugee
I can see this masterpiece being played on this tour. I'm a Trump supporter, and can see where this song can be a cry to support this action. Love U2 and this song, hope they play it!
19 February, 2017
Tampa to Cleveland
U2 are the greatest band ever. Their body of work is second to none. It should be interesting to see how the band flex to the Heartland now that our country is looking to help our own starving people and THEN helping the rest of the world. And we will help the rest of the world. We are ONE global community.

Going to Berlin to be with U2!
I´m lucky to have a ticket for the show in Berlin. It´s great that the concert will include all songs from the Joshua Tree album and I´m excited about the chance to hear gems U2 have never or rarely played live. Also, I hope they will add a few b-sides to the set list. For me The Joshua Tree was a gift I received in 1989 and it still means so much to me. Listening to it for the first time back then, I was moved by its intensity, heart and soul immediately. From the majestic intro of Where The Streets Have No Name to the heavy beats of Bullet The Blue Sky, it reveals an extraordinary diversity of sounds. It´s a stunning example of the band´s ability to mix aspects of personal life with politics and spirituality. A mythological masterpiece that takes us on a journey to wide-open spaces, giving us a complex vision of America. Greetings from Austria

second time around
My first ever concert, 1st of July 1987, Leeds. And man, what a show! I became a massive U2 fan ever since. I remember the sudden surge of the crowd as U2 appeared on stage and a sudden flash of electricity that seemed to engulf every single one of us. This concert set me on my way to loving live music and I have since seen them and others many times. What an absolute pleasure to be seeing them on the Joshua tree tour 2017 with my two brothers. I can not wait, (and then seeing JAMES in Newcastle tree weeks later! my two favourite bands in one month!) Thanks lads for the brilliant music and good times, if feels like I have come full circle. bring it on. xx

I totally get Bono when he suggests that the issues being highlighted through the Joshua Tree narrative (predominantly involving the US) have gone full circle, and there is as much relevance and meaning in the lyrics today as there was in the mid-eighties. This Tour can also support a movement that voices compassion, diversity and true liberalism as a counter to the right wing movements that are rising globally (specifically in the US). By the time the Tour begins I am convinced there will be a global movement that this tour can help accelerate. I listened to Silver & Gold this morning and it seems to sit right at the centre of what is happening in Trump America. This needs to appear on the tour - either as a mash-up with Bullet or in it's own right!!
22 January, 2017
Very excited!
I've got a ticket for L.A. and N.Y., I am coming all the way from Japan just to see U2. Too bad I failed to get one in Dublin, but I am happy enough to be involved in this anniversary tour! Let's enjoy!
