U2 to Play The Joshua Tree at AT&T Stadium

Bono and company return to Jerry World.

For the 30th anniversary of one of its most remarkable albums, U2 will play the entirety of The Joshua Tree on the band’s upcoming tour, which lands at AT&T Stadium on May 26. The Lumineers open.

It’s U2’s first show in North Texas since 2009, when Bono and company last played Jerry World. For that show, the band’s elaborate stage set-up was so massive it required raising the football stadium’s famously big video screens, a noteworthy moment in the history of U2 stage props, which also includes the time the group got stuck inside a big lemon.

The stage spectacle remains to be seen, but fans can expect a solid setlist at the show in May. The Joshua Tree is indeed classic.

Tickets go on sale Tuesday.

And while we’re here, how about a couple other concert announcements to start the week off? Charlie Wilson is playing Verizon Theatre on March 19, and A Perfect Circle comes to Verizon Theatre on April 23.
