Live from Slane Castle, Ireland Vertigo Song recordings produced by Daniel Lanois Songs about heroin. Archived from the original on 22 March Retrieved 2 November On 2 Junethe album was reissued in several formats in commemoration of its 30th anniversary.
Bono described as "an incredibly bad year" for him,  which was reflected in the lyrics. That year was really a desert for us. Over several days in December ,   U2 travelled with Corbijn and Averill on a bus around the Mojave Desert for a photo shoot. This led to him focusing on the background and leaving the band slightly out of focus. Corbijn said, "Fortunately there was a lot of light. The photo shoots took place in the mornings and evenings, with mid-days spent travelling and on preparation.
Bono explained, "it was freezing and we had to take our coats off so it would at least look like a desert. It was definitely the most serious, I think, that you can photograph a band.
For the vinyl record release, Corbijn originally wanted to have a shot of the Joshua tree on the front of the sleeve, with U2 in a continuation of the photograph on the back. The center gatefold showed an image of U2 with the Joshua tree in the center; a mirror used by them to check their appearance was mistakenly left in frame. Since the compact disc was a relatively new format at the time, the creative team decided to experiment with the album cover, selecting different cover images for each format on which the album was released; early pressings on compact disc and cassette tape used a blurry, distorted photo of the band.
The tree photographed for the sleeve fell around ,  yet the site remains a popular tourist attraction for U2 fans. Just prior to the release of The Joshua Tree , Bono was stricken with a sudden panic about the quality of the completed album. This edition rectified the incorrect track splitting between "One Tree Hill" and "Exit" that affected some CD releases; the quiet coda that concludes "One Tree Hill" had previously been included in the same track as "Exit".
Following its 30th anniversary reissue, The Joshua Tree re-entered the Billboard chart the week of 8 June , climbing to number 16—its highest position on the chart since 13 February The magazine praised U2 for eschewing ambient experimentation in favour of uncomplicated but layered arrangements.
U2 is what the Rolling Stones ceased being years ago—the greatest rock and roll band in the world". Hilburn noted that the band showed "sometimes breathtaking signs of growth" and played more "tailored and assured" music. Racine, however, believed the group took itself too seriously, resulting in a record that is "not a whole lot of fun, bordering on the pretentious", which caused him to lose interest by the second side.
In a retrospective review, Stephen Thomas Erlewine of AllMusic said "their focus has never been clearer, nor has their music been catchier". Lasting from April to December , it comprised shows over three legs. Like their previous tours, the Joshua Tree Tour was a minimalistic, austere production,  and U2 used this outlet for addressing political and social concerns.
The band hinted that the stresses of touring led them to enjoy the "rock and roll lifestyle" they previously avoided. It ranks as one of the best-selling albums in the US. They incorporated alternative rock , electronic dance music , and industrial music into their sound, and adopted a more ironic, flippant image by which they embraced the "rock star" identity they struggled with in the s.
All editions included liner notes by author Bill Flanagan and previously unseen photographs by Anton Corbijn. As always, the band had to make sure it was right, and now it is. The bonus DVD includes live concert footage, a documentary, and two music videos.
For the 30th anniversary of The Joshua Tree , U2 staged a concert tour in North America, Europe, and Latin America, on which the album was played in its entirety at each show. It was a period when there was a lot of unrest. On 2 June , the album was reissued in several formats in commemoration of its 30th anniversary. U2  [nb 2]. Additional performers . Technical .

March Australia and New Zealand only. We had done quite revolutionary things So we felt, going into The Joshua Tree , that maybe options were not a good thing, that limitations might be positive.
And so we decided to work within the limitations of the song as a starting point. We thought: We wanted the record to be less vague, open-ended, atmospheric and impressionistic. To make it more straightforward, focused and concise. On this record I had to deal with it on a political level for the first time, if in a subtle way.
Main article: The Joshua Tree Tour. Rattle and Hum was an extension of the album, further exploring American music forms such as blues, gospel, and soul. Then, inevitably, U2 got tired of living in their own shadow, and both Achtung Baby and Zooropa chipped away at expectations of the band. When they finally realized there was no escaping their iconic status sealed by The Joshua Tree , U2 mocked it on Pop. The Joshua Tree Tour The Joshua Tree".

Future music video director Dave Meyers wrote a movie script to the song while a film student at Loyola Marymount University. Lynn Connolly, whose memoir The Mun: Growing Up in Ballymun detailed her raising there in the s and s, readily acknowledged the problems there and also wanted to get out at the time. The Ballymun area was still so associated with "Running to Stand Still" and the drug problem of the time, that local backers of the regeneration went to pains to point out the recent progress.

Ma My birthday and The Joshua Tree to!!! March, 9 th, My favorite album!!! I know you probably hear this a lot, but I was in college when this album came out. You know the feeling! Off on your own for the first time, exploring music, people, ideas, and not really knowing which way was right for you. I heard Where the Streets have no Name and I was hooked!
U2 became and still is my favorite band! I still turn to JT when I need a clarification of who I am! Thank you for your music! It has been my mainstay for a long time and it always will.
Love you Bono Vox. Guitar has a leading role in this album, new brilliant parts, voice is sailing in new waters, drums and bass guitar are complementary.
It is a light dark album. Eleven tracks and each song is a miliar stone in this path, the band is in phase of ascent. I wanna reach out And touch the flame Where the streets have no name. The senses have been amplified. Hear their heartbeat, we hear their heartbeat. I saw the show your are amazing!!! It was a dream. This guys are the Machine Congratulation at your Roadies cool guys!
