U2 Confirm First Australian Tour In A Decade
They’ll be performing The Joshua Tree in full.
Irish rock royalty U2 have announced their first return to Australian shores in almost a decade.
Performing their seminal fifth record The Joshua Tree in full, as well as some of their greatest international hits, U2 will be supported by Noel Gallagher (of Oasis fame) and his current band High Flying Birds.
The tour will kick off on 12 November 2019 at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, before travelling the country, performing in Melbourne, Adelaide, Sydney and Perth.
Released in 1987, U2’s Grammy Award-winning album The Joshua Tree topped charts globally and included classics such as With Or Without You, I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For and Where The Streets Have No Name.
As well as a performance from their extensive catalogue, the band will be framed by the largest high-resolution cinematic screen ever used in a concert.
"Our audience has given The Joshua Tree a whole new life on this tour," said U2 singer Bono.
"Doing these shows has been very special for us, a lot of emotion … from the despair of how relevant some of the dark songs still are, to the joy, pure fun of the staging … it’s quite a ride."
U2 fan pre-sale kicks off on 4 June before general public sales go live on 11 June. More info and tickets here.
