U2 will bring their Joshua Tree Tour to New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Singapore and South Korea later this year.

U2 broke the news directly to fans via Twitter.

Following the 2017 tour in celebration of the band’s classic album, The Joshua Tree Tour 2019 will see the band make its return to New Zealand and Australia for the first time since the U2 360° Tour in 2010, as well as the first Tokyo shows since the Vertigo Tour in 2006. The Joshua Tree Tour 2019 will also bring U2 to Singapore and Seoul, for the first time ever.

Special guest Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds is confirmed as support for the dates in New Zealand and Australia.

Bono said, in a press release, “It’s only taken me 30 years to learn how to sing these songs and it’s great to be able to say that I’ve finally caught up with the band. Our audience has given The Joshua Tree a whole new life on this tour. Doing these shows has been very special for us, a lot of emotion… From the despair of how relevant some of the dark songs still are, to the joy, pure fun of the staging… it’s quite a ride. And now we get to do it all over again. Auckland, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney, Tokyo, Singapore, Seoul… We’re coming for you.”
