TAMPA, Fla. - U2 is celebrating the 30th anniversary of their acclaimed 1987 album, "The Joshua Tree," by performing it in its entirety at stadiums across North America and Europe this spring and summer.
The tour which will begin on May 12 in Vancouver includes a stop at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on June 14. The largest crowd ever recorded in the stadium, more than 72,000 people, came on October 9, 2009, with U2's 360° Tour.
According to Rolling Stone magazine, U2: The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 will be the first time the rock band has played a classic album in concert.
"The Joshua Tree" includes such classics as "Where The Streets Have No Name," "With or Without You" and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For."
The concert may not follow the album's order of tracks, but it will include them all. U2 is also planning on releasing a new album this year called "Songs of Experience."
Tickets for the U.S. shows go on sale Tuesday, January 17. There will have general admission seating on the field and reserved seats in the stands. Presales open for U2 fan club members starting on Wednesday.
