U2: The Joshua Tree Tour 2019 in Japan (Dec)

U2 announced a couple of Tokyo shows as part of the upcoming “The Joshua Tree Tour 2019”.
It’s been a long time! In fact, Japanese fans have been 13 years for U2’s return.

With this tour, U2 commemorates their landmark 1987 album, which includes some of their greatest hits such as “With or Without You” and “Where the Streets Have No Name”. Judging from set-lists of previous tour legs, the band will perform the album in its entirety (plus a bunch of tracks from other albums).

Both gigs will take place in Saitama, in the outskirts of Tokyo. Members of their fan club are first in line when it comes to ticket sales.

What are the benefits of RED ZONE tickets?
You get priority venue entry, a collectors’ souvenir ticket, an opportunity to be chosen for a pre-show backstage tour, access to purchase pre-show refreshments. Also, a portion of the proceeds from your purchase supports the (RED) campaign. However, note that ID will be checked for these type of tickets, so you need to purchase them using your own name and can probably not enter with RED ZONE tickets from resellers or scalpers.
