Two years ago, U2 celebrated the 30th anniversary of their landmark Joshua Tree album with a massive tour. After dropping their full-length Songs of Experience later in 2017, they spent the next year playing shows under the “eXPERIENCE + iNNOCENCE Tour” banner. Now, however, the rock legends are relaunching “The Joshua Tree Tour” with a new round of 2019 tour dates.
The new trek launches November 8th in Auckland, New Zealand before continuing in Australia, marking U2’s first shows in the region since 2010. They’ll next head to Asia in December, playing their first Tokyo, Japan gigs since the “Vertigo Tour” in 2006 and hitting both Seoul, South Korea and Singapore for the first time ever.
