U2 The Joshua Tree Tour 2017
U2 return to Croke Park this Saturday with U2: The Joshua Tree Tour 2017. The tour is in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the band’s seminal album. The concert will see U2 bring The Joshua Tree back to a sold out stadium in the 30th anniversary year of their original Joshua Tree Tour which took place in June 1987.
Featuring hit singles “With Or Without You”, “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” and “Where The Streets Have No Name”, The Joshua Tree went to number one in Ireland and around the world,
There is now doubt that nostalgia will be high at Saturday nights gig, taking us all back to 1987 when U2 made the cover of Time Magazine proclaiming them “Rock’s Hottest Ticket”, after which they returned home for four unforgettable shows in Belfast, Dublin and Cork.
Only two more sleeps until they recreate the magic.
