Steven Strosberg Somebody still needs to explain to me A) Why U2 has no date in phoenix or Denver on this tour and B) Who was the A$$hole who let them cut Bad from the Live album ?
Joy Leung There are 3 copies left at Good Records in Dallas about 30 minutes ago and they have the Mojo with U2 on the cover as well.
Keif Mullis Have to say the difference in Bono at 57 and at 27 are barely noticeable i.e. the verses and chorus blend so well together!
William Durgin Why are you playing with the fans love of your music😡. Its bin over a year with the anoument of a new album. Still nothing. A bin of advice. If you are working on a new album. Don't say a word. Deny. Deny. Deny. If you are ask about it. Say nothing. ...
Patrick Harrison I also remember the comment that went along with the material for billy joel when he had 10'000 bucks in guitars stolen summer of 1980 in new york i was in new york looking for my dad who was missing

Martin Tolan Leonie Martin. Play this version to John. Brilliant!!!
Vinicios Savio Juliano Zucareli, menos reverb na batera e mais ênfase nos metais. O que achou?

Daryl Ewry My mom's favorite U2 song. Although she could never remember the title. To her, it was always "That U2 Song Where They're In Las Vegas In the Video."
Lacy Keyser We've been learning all about your tour and history in my U2 class. Would be amazing if someway you guys could come to our big premiere final in our U2 class you guys would love it :)
Jayne Hawkins I can't wait for London. First time I saw you was 1982 supporting The Police at Gateshead .. mind blowing gig .. I can remember buying the Joshua Tree the day it came out in 1987 .. ❤️
Patrick Harrison I really hope you find a way to tell the truth about me writing your songs if not? Whats the point? Your so great you dont need to pay?
Robin Duncan When your band was in the Mojave Desert making a video about the streets with no names some of the crew or band saw my mother taking a walk through the desert. And, someone kept saying we're making a video please don't be ...

The Joshua Tree Tour (the first one) opened up in Tempe, Arizona, thirty years ago this week. Here’s the original 'rigging plot’. When #U2TheJoshuaTree2017 opens up in Vancouver next month, the crew probably won’t be using this one.

Heather Foltz Wish they were coming back to AZ on this tour...!!! 😩
Verdun Augustine 30 years ago; the day before coming to Thailand I was given a ticket to the Vancouver Joshua Tree showing! It was absolutely amazing. A memory I will forever treasure. Thanks Cecil!!
Jodi Barker I was there, wish they had included AZ this time, would have seemed fitting, considering.
Anita Burchett Claussen Yup...my friend who was an athlete let me sneak into the ASU stadium and I heard your sound check -- was a poor student, so didn't get to see the show, but the 5 minutes I heard still gives me goosebumps!
Dion Patricia Simte Some if the greatest times of my life that week at ASU!!

Chris Amedee Cool footage, I didn't realised they performed any other songs on the rooftop. Although it must be said that it's obviously the soundtrack of In God's country from the Rattle and Hum movie that we are hearing in this clip.
Bill Evidon I was very lucky to be there on 7th and Main that day with my girlfriend (now wife) and brother. The cops cut the power during "Pride" as I recall and Bono sang a few lines through a megaphone before being escorted off the roof. Great day!
Mike Haines Phenomenal. Oddly enough I just watched the video yesterday that was made of "Where the Streets Have No Name" from that same venue. It is quite significant to me that the police unilaterally decided to shut down the performance. Many are concerned ...
Kim Smith If this song ever stops giving me goose bumps, check my pulse. By the time it ends, you feel like you've been baptized on a roller coaster ride soaring through heaven, where corkscrew turns are tunnels through redemption, hope and forgiveness before the ...
Jovi Neri This is only half-true. Sure, this video was shot exactly 30 years ago today, but the audio used in this video is not from this exact day but from a November 1987 Colorado show! Sorry if I am anal about this but a U2 fan has got to do what a U2 fan ...

Michele Monfuletho It's not the same.. yes his voice has changed some since 1986 but the remix is to clean.. The original version has more soul and depth to it..
Jodie Hansen This band started in middle school when Larry Mullen Jr put up a sign saying he was going to start up a band. Bono, The Edge Adam and a couple other guys showed up. The two guys faded out but the 4 still rocking it all these yrs later. Bono is with 600 ...
Greg Lochtefeld A truly great album that permeated our souls and unlocked unbridled passion and inspiration in so many people. Brings back some great memories.
Jef Musicien this new mix is pointless: the new voice take by Bono has less "soul" than the original one. And this new synth is UGLY, it sounds like a cheap toy for Christmas. Keep It Simple Stupid : your album is perfect, don't change a single thing. Sometimes the ...
Daniel Serranoria Beautiful... couldn't you make sure, we, the U2.com suscribers get access to this without having to buy it through Ebay to people not interested in it... making a special order for us....?

Bono and The Edge explain why, 30 years later, the biggest-selling album of their career feels disquietingly resonant.

Jana Caye ♥️❤"And people suffer us talking about America because we love it so much. Rather arrogantly, we don't think you own it. We think America is an idea that belongs to people who need it most."
Joe Rosales Hey knuckleheads, if you want to take a divided country and attempt to bring it together start by performing in all 50 states..... yeah, that's what I thought!
Laura Slade They were always liberal, but never joined in to be vitriolic against the GW Bush Presidency, because Bush was willing to do humanitarian work in Africa, so they were aligned on at least one issue. Maybe people wrongly thought, Bono became more ...
Yvo Haast Joshua Tree was rooted in reality, which made it relevant. If their postponed album was as well, they could have released it no matter who won the US election. But they assumed Clinton was going to win, maybe they based some songs on it. A song called ...

Margot Edhouse Just watched this on St Paddy's Day/my 60th and decided to treat myself to it. Loved watching U2 concert in Auckland New Zealand in the rain a few years back....a birthday present from my eldest son! ❤❤❤

Otthella Wiersma-Roelofs I remember that day, a different album with songs that made me so happy. Playing the video on the roof hilarisch in LA with one of my favorite song when the streets have no name ❤🗽 and nobody who can stopped it 😂 and bono says NO WAR 👌
Ulrika Englund Happy 30th!! I didn't realize it was today but I'm so happy I played "Still haven't found what I'm looking for" in one of my dance classes tonight, my students did some beautiful dance improv to this song. I can't wait to see your concert in Toronto ...

Steve Styles Shine Like Stars: Where does this beautiful extra verse in With Or Without You come from? Did Bono improvise during tour rehearsals and decided to stick with it, or does it have another genesis? #AskU2 #U2TheJoshuaTree2017

Pam Rodriguez-Cochran Trying to write what this album means to me is like trying to describe the origin of the wind. As a true child of '80s music (started 7th grade in 1980 and graduated from college in 1990), The Joshua Tree represents the true feeling I have about that ...
Priscila Arguedas Marín I was a little girl of 3 years when The Joshua Tree came out... and probably I would never imagine that 30 years later I will be here waiting for the tour and my second time to see them playing live. The music of U2 has marked me and it is like the ...
