U2 Head To Australia After New Zealand Shows

U2 have touched down in Australia for their first tour in nine years. After two shows in Auckland on the weekend, U2 will kick off the Australian leg of ‘The Joshua Tree’ tour in Brisbane on Tuesday (12 November).

‘The Joshua Tree’ tour features a complete performance of ‘The Joshua Tree’ album as the centerpiece of the show.

‘The Joshua Tree’ was U2’s fifth studio album. Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois, who also produced the previous album ‘The Unforgettable Fire’, produced the record. Emo and Lanois evolved the earlier record’s ambient sound to include a rock edge more like the first three U2 albums.

Recording of ‘The Joshua Tree’ began in Ireland in January 1986. It was released 14 months later on 9 March 1987.

In 2014 the US Library of Congress declared the album ‘Culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant’. The album cover was shot by Anton Corbijn in the Mojave Desert near Darwin, California.

U2 are touring Australia and New Zealand for Live Nation.
