The Joshua Tree Tour 2019 will also bring U2 to Singapore and Seoul - for the first time ever – with what promises to be very special concerts from “the biggest band in the world” (The Guardian). 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!!!!!”. The Joshua Tree Tour 2019 kicks off in Auckland on 8th November and will visit Brisbane, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. Tickets go on sale Tuesday 11th June (times vary per city).
