1987 all over again

U2 to play Heinz Field

U2 will bring The Joshua Tree Tour to Heinz Field on June 7 with special guest The Lumineers, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 17 at Ticketmaster.com

U2 will play "The Joshua Tree" in its entirety in celebration of the 30th anniversary of its 1987 album, which featured hit singles such as "With Or Without You," "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" and "Where The Streets Have No Name."

"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," guitarist The Edge said in a statement. "To celebrate the album — as the songs seem so relevant and prescient of these times too - we decided to do these shows, it feels right for now. We're looking forward to it."

"Recently I listened back to The Joshua Tree for the first time in nearly 30 years … it's quite an opera," lead singer Bono added. "A lot of emotions which feel strangely current, love, loss, broken dreams, seeking oblivion, polarisation… all the greats... I've sung some of these songs a lot… but never all of them. I'm up for it, if our audience is as excited as we are… it's gonna be a great night."

It will be the band's first show in Pittsburgh since the U2 360° Tour in 2011.
