U2 announced this week that they are hitting the road and the tour sounds like one that old-school U2 fans have been waiting on for a long time. The tour is called The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 and Live Nation reported that U2 will hit Dallas on the tour for a big show at AT&T Stadium on May 26. Tickets for this big concert go on sale on Jan. 17.
The Joshua Tree was the 1987 U2 album that really made the band huge megastars. Some of their most beloved songs came from this epic album including “Where The Streets Have No Name” and “Bullet the Blue Sky.” The album was U2’s most spiritual and political they will relive it 30 years after the album hit the shelves.
U2 will play the Joshua Tree in its entirety for this tour and they will hit several large stadiums in the United States before heading overseas. This is the first U2 stadium tour since 2011 when they had a record breaking 7,268,430 fans attend their shows. Dallas will be one of two Texas shows, with U2 hitting Houston and NRG Stadium on May 24.
Tickets for the U2 Dallas concert go on sale on Jan. 17 here. The concert takes place at AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, on May 26. Opening bands for the U2 North American tour include Mumford & Sons, OneRepublic, or The Lumineers.
