U2 Is Now Arriving In India! 

If there is an event that the entire nation has been collectively anticipating, it's the first-time arrival of the iconic Irish band, U2 in India! This marks the end of their historic record-breaking tour, The Joshua Tree Tour, with the final destination as our very own, Aamchi Mumbai. U2's visit to India has been orchestrated with a view to celebrate the end of performing this album globally and according to us, there couldn't have been a bigger bang to go out with!

About The Joshua Tree Tour

The Joshua Tree, released by U2 in 1987, is arguably one of the most iconic albums to have existed in the domain of rock music. An album that shot U2 to even bigger fame as well as the cover of Time Magazine, with the phrase "Rock's Hottest Ticket" embossed in flaming gold across a photo of four Irish lads.

This album was U2's first work to reach number 1 on US music charts and furnish them with dozens of prestigious awards. Some of the hits from this album that skyrocketed to widespread popularity almost overnight include "With Or Without You", "Where The Streets Have No Name" and "Bullet The Blue Sky". 

 

In 2017, the first part of two worldwide concert tours celebrating this legendary album was set in motion. As a part of their 2017 tour, U2 went on to perform in stadiums across three geographical zones: North America, Europe and Latin America. This tour allowed U2 to resurface as one of the most revolutionary names in the world of rock in the 21st century, although the band denied any characterisations of nostalgia. The 2017 Joshua Tree Tour sold more than 27 million tickets to its 51 shows, and the rest, as they say, is history. 

 

2019 demarcates the second part of this sensational global tour with U2 now traversing the territories of Oceania and Asia with Mumbai as the penultimate stop!
