Special guestNoel Gallagher’s High Flying Birdsis confirmed as support for the dates in New Zealand and Australia with Noel sayingWe, NGHFB, are beside ourselves.

Following the highly successful 2017 tour in celebration of the band’s seminal album, The Joshua Tree Tour 2019will see the band make a much anticipated return to New Zealand and Australia for the first time since the record-shattering U2 360° Tour in 2010, as well as the first Tokyo shows since the Vertigo Tour in 2006. The Joshua Tree Tour 2019will also bring U2 to Singapore and Seoul– for the first time ever– with what promises to be very special concerts from “the biggest band in the world” (The Guardian).  

“The stuff of encores… Had Twickenham had a roof, it would surely have been blown off…”5/5 stars

London Evening Standard,

Bono said “It’sonly taken me 30 years to learn how to sing these songs and it’s great to be able to say that I’ve finally caught up with the band. Our audience has given the Joshua Tree a whole new life on this tour. 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. And now we get to do it all over again. Auckland, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney, Tokyo, Singapore, Seoul… We’re coming for you”. 

 “We really, REALLY wanted to bring The Joshua Tree to New Zealand, Australia and Asia” added The Edge.“We promised we would and finally, now we can say that we will see you in November… It’s going to feel like a homecoming and we are very excited”.  

“They are a live act simply without peer… [U2] kicked the crowd into a whole other gear of euphoria”
