U2: The Joshua Tree Tour 2019
Time Out says
The mammoth rock band will bring the victory-lap tour to Melbourne this spring
U2 is bringing their Joshua Tree tour to Australia. The Irish stars have built a four-decade career off the back of powerful rock anthems and heartstring-tugging ballads. Bono, his signature tinted sunnies (they’re for his glaucoma) and the rest of the band will be headed to Melbourne this November.
The upcoming tour is a celebration of the band’s 1987 album The Joshua Tree which features some of U2’s best-known hits and truly raised the group to superstardom (think 'With or Without You', 'Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For' and 'Where the Streets Have No Name'). The victory-lap tour was first run in 2017 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the namesake album’s release, however, Australia, New Zealand and Asia missed out.
The Joshua Tree tour 2019 will be the first time U2 has played in Australia for almost a decade and they’re bringing some pretty big name friends with them. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds has been announced as the tour’s support acts, which basically makes the gig a double bill.
You can see U2 perform at Marvel Stadium on Friday, November 15. Tickets for U2 subscribers go on sale Tuesday, June 4 and general sales start Tuesday, June 11.
