U2 Prepping 'The Joshua Tree' 30th Anniversary Edition With Bonus Tracks, Live Cuts & Unseen Photos

Rob Verhorst/Redferns
The Edge and Bono of U2 perform during The Joshua Tree Tour on July 10, 1987.

U2 will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the landmark fifth studio album, The Joshua Tree, with a commemorative edition featuring bonus tracks and a live 1987 show from New York's Madison Square Garden. The set will feature the original 11-track album -- with international hits such as "Where the Streets Have No Name," "With or Without You" and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" -- plus b-sides from the album's original sessions, 2017 remixes from producer Daniel Lanois, St. Francis Hotel, Jacknife Lee, Steve Lillywhite and Flood, as well as the live recording of a show from the Joshua Tree tour. Although the official anniversary is March 9, the special edition collection is due from Interscope Records on June 2.

The set will also come with an 84-page hardback book of unseen personal photos shot by guitarist The Edge during the original Mojave Desert photo sessions in 1986. "When I see the people we were back then,” writes Edge in his introduction to the photo book. "I see a bunch of pilgrims on a journey towards some kind of creative home. I think that really does capture the spirit of the band at that time.” The original album, released on March 9, 1987, hit No. 1 in the U.S. and sold more than 25 million copies around the world on its way to winning a Grammy Award for album of the year.

The group is kicking off The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 in Vancouver on May 12, which will take them to stadiums across North America and Europe and will include their first-ever U.S. festival headline slot at this year's Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. You can pre-order the album here.
