LOS ANGELES -- U2 will play the entirety of its classic 1987 album “The Joshua Tree” at each stop during a summer stadium tour to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its release.
Powered by singles “With or Without You,” ‘’Where The Streets Have No Name” and “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For,” ‘’The Joshua Tree” became the band’s first chart-topping album in the U.S. and has sold 25 million copies worldwide.
The documentary “Rattle and Hum,” released in conjunction with the band’s sixth studio album in 1988, was filmed during the first “Joshua Tree” tour 30 years ago.
The North American leg of the tour kicks off on May 12 in Vancouver and wraps up on July 1 in Cleveland, before heading to Europe. The tour includes a June stop at the Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee.
Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers and OneRepublic will alternate opening for U2 on the North American leg.
