U2 Reveal Big Plans for 2017
U2’s Bono has posted a bit of tantalizing news on the band’s Facebook page. In addition to moving closer to releasing their new studio album, Songs of Experience, the British rockers are planning a series of concerts to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their seminal album, The Joshua Tree.
"Happy Christmas everyone,” says Bono, in a Facebook video featuring the band. “Next year is going to be a big year for the U2 group. We have Songs of Experience coming and, to honor 30 years of The Joshua Tree, we have some very, very special shows coming. Very special."
Released in 1987, The Joshua Tree went on to sell 25 million copies and spawned the colossal hits “Where the Streets Have No Name,” “With or Without You,” and “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.” In 2014, the Library of Congress honored the album by selecting it for inclusion in the National Recording Registry.
