In 1987, U2 released their iconic album called “The Joshua Tree.” This record included the hits “Where the Streets Have No Name” and “With or Without You” and won the band the Grammy for album of the year. To celebrate its 30th anniversary, the influential rock band plans to tour huge venues across the U.S. and Europe.

Texans can catch U2 play “The Joshua Tree” in its entirety along with many of their other hits in Houston on May 24th at NRG Stadium and in Dallas on May 26th at AT&T Stadium. Chron.com wants the public to know that Houstonians can grab tickets online starting at 10 a.m. January 17th. Act quickly, because tickets will be a hot commodity, and fan club members will get first pick. The pricing fluctuates between $35 – $280, and the floor of the arena will be standing room only.

Why has the band chosen to revisit their old record? The New York Times spoke with U2’s guitarist, The Edge, about the tour. “It seems like we have come full circle from when ‘The Joshua Tree’ songs were originally written, with global upheaval, extreme right-wing politics and some fundamental human rights at risk. To celebrate the album…feels right for now,” he explained.
