With Special Guest Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds.

Live Nation is excited to confirm that U2 will bring their acclaimed Joshua Tree Tour to New Zealand in November.

Following the highly successful 2017 tour in celebration of the band’s seminal album, The Joshua Tree Tour 2019 will see the band make a much anticipated return to New Zealand for the first time since the record-shattering U2 360° Tour in 2010.

“Electrifying.” – Daily Telegraph

“In scale, ambition or impact… U2 are bulletproof.” – The Independent

“Still masters of stadium rock.” – Mail On Sunday

“The stuff of encores… Had Twickenham had a roof, it would surely have been blown off…” - London Evening Standard

“They are a live act simply without peer… [U2] kicked the crowd into a whole other gear of euphoria.” - Rolling Stone

“A generationally important band… empathy, hope and, ultimately, exaltation.” - The New York Times

Special guest Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds is confirmed as support for the dates in New Zealand and Australia with Noel saying, “We, NGHFB, are beside ourselves. The Joshua Tree 2017 Tour was some of the most fun we ever had. It will be both an honour and a pleasure to share the stage with our friends and comrades once again. It’s gonna be a ripper!!”.

Bono said “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… From the despair of how relevant some of the dark songs still are, to the joy, pure fun of the staging… 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”.

“We really, really wanted to bring The Joshua Tree to New Zealand, Australia and Asia” added The Edge. “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 Joshua Tree Tour 2019 kicks off in Auckland on 8th November and will visit Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth, before moving on to Singapore, Tokyo and Seoul.

Tickets for the New Zealand show go on sale on at 2pm Tuesday 11th June 2019.

U2.com subscribers will have first opportunity to purchase tickets starting Tuesday 4th June through Thursday 6th June with a 4 ticket limit (see www.U2.com for details).

In a first for any artist performing in New Zealand and Australia, and to ensure fans have the best access, stadium floor tickets for all the band’s NZ/AU shows will be paperless with delivery via mobile devices 72 hours prior to the applicable show. There will be an 8 ticket limit for general public sales.
