U2 is heading to Australia to celebrate its landmark album The Joshua Tree.
U2 first embarked on the Joshua Tree Tour in 2017 for the album's 30th anniversary, but this is the first time it will come to Australia. The band last toured the country in 2010 for its 360° Tour.
The Joshua Tree contains some of the band's most beloved songs such as With or Without You, I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For, and Where the Streets Have No Name, and was produced by Daniel Lanois and revered musician Brian Eno. The band drew on their experiences touring the USA and were informed by the what they felt was a disjunct between the lived experience of Americans and the country's mythic identity. The record is filled with socio-political themes and spiritual imagery.
The album has sold more than 25 million copies worldwide.
Tickets go on sale Tuesday June 11 2019 (times vary per city). U2.com subscribers can purchase tickets starting Tuesday June 4 until Thursday June 6. For complete tour and ticket information visit u2.com.
