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.
It's popping up all over the place.
No, we said popping not ... nevermind.
Wine, cats, coffee — what more could you ask for?
A Georgia driver hit more than a bump in the road while driving.
Elysia Morris said she was driving her red BMW through a construction zone when a truck was driving toward her without stopping.
She said she veered to the left to avoid a possible collision when her car got stuck in fresh, wet concrete.
"[The truck is] still driving towards me, still honking the horn, so I bear over to the left and my car ends up submerged in fresh, wet concrete," Morris said.
Morris was rescued safely, but her car was lodged deep into the mixture.
She said the construction company told her the concrete would cure in an hour and the tow truck that responded asked her to sign a waiver saying the county wasn't responsible for any damages before they would tow it.
She refused to sign, and they left the concrete to dry around her car, cementing it into the street.
Construction workers eventually used a jack hammer to remove the block of concrete and the car and loaded it onto a flatbed truck.
Condolences are pouring in from all over ... for a girl they never knew. But her story speaks to all of them.
