U2 returns to Pittsburgh June 7 for a stadium tour in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the band’s classic 1987 album, Joshua Tree.
“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,” guitarist The Edge said in a statement. “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.”
“Recently I listened back to The Joshua Tree for the first time in nearly 30 years… it’s quite an opera,” Bono added. “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.” (source: Pittsburgh Post Gazette)
