U2 Announces 2017 Joshua Tree Tour, With Stops in Miami and at Bonnaroo

It's been 30 years since U2 released its now-classic album The Joshua Tree, packed with hits such as "With or Without You" and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." The bad news is that if you were a fan of the album, you probably feel pretty old right now. But there's good news too: U2 is commemorating the anniversary with the Joshua Tree Tour, and it's coming to Miami.
The tour will begin with a May 12 show in Vancouver and visit massive arenas across the nation, including Hard Rock Stadium June 11. Along the way, U2 will be joined by various supporting bands, including Mumford & Sons, the Lumineers, and OneRepublic. (In Miami, OneRepublic will open.)
At each stop, U2 will play The Joshua Tree in its entirety. The band will make only 17 stops on the North American portion of its tour, including the Bonnaroo Music + Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee — U2's first headlining performance at a music fest.
The group's Miami show will mark U2's first return to the city in six years. In 2011, during the 360° Tour, Bono closed out the show at then-named Sun Life Stadium with a tribute to Clarence Clemons, who had recently died in a Palm Beach hospital. U2's last tour, titled iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE, visited just ten cities; the closest one to Miami was New York City.
After its 17-show tour in North America, U2 will continue on to dates in Europe. Here's the full schedule:
