As the Edge told Rolling Stone, the Tree dates give the band an opportunity to celebrate its storied past without curtailing its commitment to new music — which includes the impending release of Songs of Experience, an LP he says they temporarily held off on releasing so they could “make sure that it really was what we wanted to say.” That delay gave them an opportunity to reflect on a record many still view as their crowning achievement, and hear it in the context of current events.“The two sort of coincided and we decided we were gonna do some shows. And we’ve never given ourselves the opportunity to celebrate our past because we’ve always as a band looked forward, but I think we felt that this was a special moment, and this was a very special record,” he added. “So we’re happy to take this moment to regroup and think about an album that’s so many years old, but still seems relevant.”U2: The Joshua Tree 2017 Tour Dates5/12 – Vancouver, BC – BC Place5/14 – Seattle, WA – CenturyLink Field5/17 – Santa Clara, CA – Levi’s Stadium5/20 – Los Angeles, CA – Rose Bowl5/24 – Houston, TX – NRG Stadium5/26 – Dallas, TX – AT&T Stadium6/03 – Chicago, IL – Soldier Field6/07 – Pittsburgh, PA – Heinz Field6/8-11 – Manchester, TN – Bonnaroo Festival6/11 – Miami, FL – Hard Rock Stadium6/14 – Tampa, FL – Raymond James Stadium6/18 – Philadelphia, PA – Lincoln Financial Field6/20 – Washington DC – FedExField6/23 – Toronto, ON – Rogers Centre6/25 – Boston, MA – Gillette Stadium6/28 – East Rutherford, NJ – MetLife Stadium7/01 – Cleveland, OH – FirstEnergy Stadium7/08 – London, UK – Twickenham7/12 – Berlin, DE – Olympic Stadium7/15 – Rome, IT – Olympic Stadium7/18 – Barcelona, ES – Olympic Stadium7/22 – Dublin, IE – Croke Park7/25 – Paris, FR – Stade de France7/29 – Amsterdam, NE – Amsterdam Arena8/01 – Brussels, BE – Stade Roi BaudouinRead More: U2 Unveil 'Joshua Tree 2017' Tour Dates | http://ultimateclassicrock.com/u2-joshua-tree-2017-tour/?trackback=fbshare_mobile_top&trackback=tsmclip
