U2 Mumford and Sons Tickets

In 1987, U2 released their fifth studio album entitled ‘The Joshua Tree’.  The album was a sharp departure from their earlier upbeat material. With this album, the band aimed for a harder sound and used very socially and politically relevant lyrics. The lyrics dealt with a variety of issues, including the band’s views on the United States, and incorporated spiritual imagery.

About U2 Mumford and Sons

The Joshua Tree was a massive success and topped charts all over the world. It was also the band’s first number one album in the United States. It featured hit songs like “With Or Without You,” “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” and “Where The Streets Have No Name.”

In celebration of the album’s 30th anniversary, the band will be heading out on a tour of select major stadiums in North America and Europe. On the tour, the band will play the album in its entirety.

The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 will officially kick off in Vancouver in May, 2017, and will then proceed to a few more stops across North America. The band will then play in Europe.

On the tour, U2 will be supported by a number of artists including Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, The Lumineers, One Republic, and Mumford and Sons.

The Importance of The Joshua Tree

When asked about their upcoming tour, The Edge had this to say:

“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 these 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.”

Bono added: “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. Especially when we play at home, Croke Park… It’s where the album was born, 30 years ago.”
