U2 announce Joshua Tree tour Croke Park date

Songs of Innocence

U2 will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their landmark album Joshua Tree with a show in Dublin’s Croke Park.

Taking place at the Dublin venue on July 22nd, U2 will headline a show in celebration of the Joshua Tree’s 30th anniversary with support from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds.

Speaking about the album the band state:

 “It seems like we have come full circle from when The Joshua Tree songs were originally written, with global upheaval, extreme right wing politics and some fundamental human rights at risk. 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. We’re looking forward to it.” The Edge

 “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.  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.”-Bono
