Why See U2?
Joshua Tree 30th Anniversary
U2 are back on the road in a rare retrospective to celebrate their legendary Joshua Tree album and its 30th anniversary! The band's previous tours remain some of the highest grossing concert series of all time, which isn't surprising given the boys' enviable back catalogue and their penchant for jaw-dropping stage design. They'll be supported by various bands, including Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers, though who exactly will be with them backstage depends on the tour date.
Formed in Dublin, 1976
U2 are approaching their 40th Anniversary as a band. Comprised of Bono, The Edge, Larry Mullen Jr. and Adam Clayton, the band's early sound drew heavily from post-punk bands like Television, but by 1987's world-conquering Joshua Tree, it was a grand, romantic rock, steeped in the influence of Americana. Just when their new found signature sound was threatening to go stale, they reinvented themselves again, with the electronica-tinged trilogy of Achtung Baby, Zooropa and Pop. Into the 2000s, U2 returned to the business of making guitar orientated anthems, producing huge hits like 'Beautiful Day' and 'Vertigo'.
Throughout their career, one of U2's trademarks has always been their spectacular live shows, from the multimedia Zoo TV Tour to 2009-2011's 360 Tour, which featured a huge spider-like sound system, and remains the highest grossing concert tour of all time. See what the band have in store this time when they play Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, MA , June 25, 2017.
Performance date: 25 June 2017
