In celebration of The Joshua Tree‘s 30th anniversary, U2 has announced a lengthy summer tour, running from May to August. The first leg of shows (which kicks off in Vancouver, Canada) takes place throughout North America, before the band heads to Europe for the bulk of July. Most notably, they’ll be on tap as headliners for this year’s Bonnaroo.
The band first broke the news to fans via a Christmas video message, in which they also revealed they’d be releasing Songs of Experience (the follow-up to 2014’s Songs of Innocence) later this year. Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers and One Republic will act as tour openers for varying dates, and Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will support on the European leg. Check below for more deets.

U2 ‘Joshua Tree’ Tour Setlist
While we don’t know exactly what U2 has planned for their Joshua Tree 30th anniversary tour, we’d venture to guess that they’ll be playing songs from the seminal 1987 album. Some of these tracks include “Where the Streets Have No Name,” “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” and “With or Without You.” The band may also perform tunes off Songs of Experience, the new album expected to be released this summer.
