Dear Alan,

The band will be back on the road this summer celebrating 30 years of The Joshua Tree… and performing the album in full every night.

Playing stadiums in North America & Europe, U2: The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 will kick off in Vancouver on 12th May for a run of dates across North America, including the band’s first ever U.S. festival headline at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival.

The tour then moves to Europe with the first stop in London on 8th June, finishing up in Brussels on 1st August and taking in a 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.

Tickets for European dates go on sale on January 16th, with North American dates on sale the day after. As usual, subscribers can enter a -sale opening this Wednesday, January 11th. Not a subscriber but interested in taking part in the presale? Subscription details here.
