U2's Joshua Tree Tour - which celebrated the 30th anniversary of the landmark album in stadiums across Europe and North and South America in 2017 - is headed to Australia and Asia in November and December for an encore run. The shows will mark their first concerts in Australia since 2010 and their first appearances ever in Singapore and South Korea.
"It's only taken me 30 years to learn how to sing these songs and it's great to be able to say that I've finally caught up with the band," Bono said in a statement. "Our audience has given the Joshua Tree a whole new life on this tour. Doing these shows has been very special for us, a lot of emotion... From the despair of how relevant some of the dark songs still are, to the joy, pure fun of the staging... it's quite a ride. And now we get to do it all over again. Auckland, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney, Tokyo, Singapore, Seoul... We're coming for you."
