  • The Joshua Tree 30th Anniversary

    U2 announced today that they will go on a limited run of stadium concerts to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the band’s most iconic album, The Joshua Tree. On Saturday, May 20th and again on Sunday, May 21st, 2017 the band will return to the Rose Bowl Stadium in Pasadena for the only shows planned in Southern California, the concert will include a performance of The Joshua Tree in its entirety and an appearance by The Lumineers. The last time U2 played the Rose Bowl was in 2009 during their 360° Tour which drew more than 97,000 fans.


    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. —The Edge


    Second Date Added

    A second show was added on Sunday, May 21st after all tickets sold out for the originally planned show on Saturday, May 20th. Tickets→

    The Joshua Tree

    The album was released on March 9, 1987 and became U2’s first #1 album in the U.S., it featured several of the band’s most revered songs including “With Or Without You”,“I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” and “Where The Streets Have No Name.”


    Recently I listened back to The Joshua Tree for the first time in nearly 30 years… 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. —Bono
