The upcoming U2 ‘The Joshua Tree Tour’ shows will bring some rarities and one never played live song into the U2 setlist.

U2 announced The Joshua Tree shows over Christmas and this week dates were confirmed to start with the first show in Vancouver, Canada on 12 May.

‘The Joshua Tree’, released on 9 March, 1987, is U2’s biggest selling album. In the USA ‘The Joshua Tree’ is certified Diamond for sales over 10 million.

Only one song from the album has never been performed live. ‘Red Hill Mining Town’ has never made a U2 setlist but they did soundcheck with it in November 1987.

Two songs, ‘Trip Through The Wire’ and ‘Exit’ have not been performed since the 1980s. ‘Exit’ was last performed at what is now known as Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne, Australia.
