About The Event
The Joshua Tree was the fifth studio album from U2. Produced by Daniel Lanois and Brian Eno, it was released on 9 March 1987.
U2 chose America as a theme for the record, inspired by America and their experiences, literature, and politics. The record was meant to contrast the "real America" vs the "mythical America". The band focused on sonic landscapes that represented the open spaces of the United States. This theme was carried forward with the album art featuring images of the band and the American desert.
The Joshua Tree topped the charts in over 20 countries, lauded by critics and fans alike, and became the fastest-selling album in UK history. It included hit singles "With or Without You", "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", and "Where the Streets Have No Name". The group supported the record with the massively selling Joshua Tree Tour throughout 1987, and revived the tour for the albums 30th anniversary in 2017 and 2018.
Frequently listed on "greatest album" lists, The Joshua Tree is one of the world's best-selling albums, with over 25 million copies sold. Deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" by the US Library of Congress it was selected for preservation in the National Recording Registry in 2014.
