Press Release - Following Live Nation’s announcement last week that due to incredible demand, select new stadium shows have been added to U2 The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 and an additional concert was confirmed today in New Orleans, LA on September 14 at the Mercedes Benz Superdome. Tickets for the newly added New Orleans show will go on sale Friday, June 16, at 10:00 am.
Currently wowing fans and critics alike across North America, U2 The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 wraps up North America July 1, heading on to Europe where it kicks off a sold out tour with two shows in London on July 8 & 9 followed by concerts in Berlin, Rome, Barcelona, Dublin, Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels. It will then relaunch in North America September 3 with a return to Detroit – the city where U2 first played a headline stadium show back on April 30, 1987 at the Silverdome on the original Joshua Tree Tour.
Joining The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 as special guest for theses dates will be 2015 Grammy Album of the Year winner Beck. Emerging from the post-modern ruckus of the ‘90s beginning with the anti-anthem “Loser,” Beck's singular career has relentlessly blazed a path into the future while foraging through the past. Beck’s uniquely kaleidoscopic take on American music and culture is a perfect complement to this tour, with his live sets drawing on classics from the dozen albums that have cemented his place in the pantheon.
In New Orleans, tickets for the U2: The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 are on sale Friday, June 16 at 10:00 am. Ticket prices start at $35.00 with general admission floor tickets at $70.00.
