Through August 1st
When U2 first toured for The Joshua Tree in 1987, the band was struggling with its new fame and how to mount a stadium show. "I, for one, didn't enjoy it," says bassist Adam Clayton. "This summer is almost an opportunity to take it back." The band looks forward to readdressing the grandeur of songs like "Where the Streets Have No Name" and "Mothers of the Disappeared," which took aim at Ronald Reagan's devastating foreign policy. "There's an element of nostalgia that we can't avoid," says the Edge. "But it's not motivated by a desire to look backward. It's almost like this album has come full circle."
