U2's 1987 album, 'The Joshua Tree' remains a high point of the Irish band's career, and now with the upcoming 30th anniversary of the album's release, U2 have announced that they will feature the entire album at all of the tour stops on their 2017 world wide tour! In the tour announcement, Bono had this to say about the band's 'watershed' album: “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, polarization … 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.”

Released to universal acclaim on March 9th 1987 and 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 No. 1 in Ireland and around the world selling in excess of 25 million copies and catapulting Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr “… from heroes to superstars” (Rolling Stone).
