U2 have announced that they'll be adding two more months to their Joshua Tree 30th anniversary tour. The Irish legends have tacked on extra legs, including one in North America and one in South America.
The original version of the tour was set to run from May to August, but now, you have a chance to see U2 all the way until October. New U.S. dates start September 3 in Detroit and end with a September 22 show in San Diego. The South America leg then begins on October 3 in Mexico City and concludes Oct. 19 in São Paulo, Brazil. Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds have signed on to support the South American dates.
The Joshua Tree tour celebrates the 30th anniversary of the seminal album, which is more timely than ever after the 2016 presidential election. The Edge told Rolling Stone earlier this year: "It just felt like, 'Wow, these songs have a new meaning and a new resonance today that they didn't have three years ago, four years ago.'"
The tour is currently weaving through North America, kicking off in Vancouver in May and making a return to the Rose Bowl (read our show review here). This weekend, U2 will bring their show to Bonnaroo in Tennessee.

Sep 3 - Detroit, MI Ford Field
Sep 5 - Buffalo, NY New Era Field
Sep 8 - Minneapolis, MN US Bank Stadium
Sep 10 - Indianapolis, IN Lucas Oil Stadium
Sep 12 - Kansas City, MO Arrowhead Stadium
