Released to universal acclaim on March 9th 1987 and featuring hit singles â€œWith Or Without Youâ€, â€œI Still Havenâ€™t Found What Iâ€™m Looking Forâ€ and â€œWhere The Streets Have No Nameâ€, The Joshua Tree was U2â€™s first #1 album in the U.S., topping the charts globally including the U.K. and Ireland, selling in excess of 25 million albums worldwide, and catapulting Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr â€œâ€¦ from heroes to superstarsâ€ (Rolling Stone). Time Magazine put U2 on its cover in April 1987, proclaiming them â€œRockâ€™s Hottest Ticketâ€ in a defining year for the band that saw their arena dates roll into stadium shows to accommodate escalating demand – setting them on course to become one of the greatest live acts in the world today. The 12 months that followed saw the band create now-iconic moments: the traffic-stopping Grammy Award-winning music video on the roof of a Los Angeles liquor store, winning a BRIT Award and two Grammys – including Album of the Year – their first of 22 received to date, distinguishing U2 as the most awarded rock band in Grammy history.
U2â€™s fifth studio album The Joshua Tree was produced by Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, and featured iconic artwork which cemented the career of photographer and director Anton Corbijn. Recording took place in Dublin at Windmill Lane Studios and Danesmoate, the house which subsequently became bassist Adam Claytonâ€™s home.
â€œIt seems like we have come full circle from when The Joshua Tree songs were originally written, with global upheaval, extreme right wing politics and some fundamental human rights at risk. To celebrate the album â€“ as the songs seem so relevant and prescient of these times too – we decided to do these shows, it feels right for now. Weâ€™re looking forward to it.â€ â€“ The Edge
â€œRecently I listened back to The Joshua Tree for the first time in nearly 30 yearsâ€¦ itâ€™s quite an opera. A lot of emotions which feel strangely current, love, loss, broken dreams, seeking oblivion, polarisationâ€¦ all the greats… Iâ€™ve sung some of these songs a lotâ€¦ but never all of them. Iâ€™m up for it, if our audience is as excited as we areâ€¦ itâ€™s gonna be a great night.â€- Bono
