Rumors of a first U2 tour of Australasia in nearly a decade have been bouncing about since February, or earlier. The band confirmed the big news with a social media post.
U2’s Joshua Tree Tour of 2017 was a home run, selling more than 2.7 million tickets across 50 shows, which were staged on three continents. All told, the concerts generated $316 million in box office revenue, according to data provided to Billboard.
The five-month-long jaunt, which commemorated the 30th anniversary of U2’s classic 1987 set The Joshua Tree, saw the band perform each song from the album at every concert.
U2: The Joshua Tree Tour is produced by Live Nation Global Touring.
