U2 play first night of 30th anniversary Joshua Tree Tour
U2 opened the 30th anniversary of The Joshua Tree tour in Vancouver BC Place Stadium last night (May 12).
Along with playing all eleven tracks from the album, the band also performed a new song called ‘The Little Things That Give You Away’, which you can hear below.
The opening night was generally a major success with customary impressive production and band performance. However, a number of fans took to social media to complain at the length of time it was taking to get into the stadium due to restricted access, with some left queuing outside as openers Mumford & Sons began their set.
Gig goers complained that the stadium had only one entrance for thousands of fans with standing tickets, and only four entrances for fans with seated tickets.
One fan shared a picture of Mumford & Sons playing the stadium, captioning it; “bc place is like 10% full for the Mumford and sons. Great job on organising security!”
U2 continue to tour playing a series of dates with support from Noel Gallagher at London’s Twickenham Stadium next month, along with further dates in Berlin, Rome, Barcelona, Dublin, Paris, Amsterdam and Brussels in July and August.
