“It’s only taken me 30 years to learn how to sing these songs and it’s great to be able to say that I’ve finally caught up with the band. Our audience has given The Joshua Tree a whole new life on this tour. Doing these shows has been very special for us, a lot of emotion, joy, it’s quite a ride… And now we get to do it all over again… Auckland, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney, Tokyo, Singapore, Seoul… We're coming for you” – Bono

“We really, REALLY wanted to bring The Joshua Tree to New Zealand, Australia and Asia. We promised we would and finally, now we can say that we will see you in November.... It’s going to feel like a homecoming and we are very excited.” –The Edge

In a first for any artist performing in New Zealand, and to ensure fans have the best access, floor tickets for the band’s shows will be paperless with delivery via digital wallet 72 hours prior to the applicable show.
