U2 Kicked Off The Joshua Three Tour 3 months ago in Vancouver and now they've finally reached Europe. The worldwide concert tour is commemorating the 30th anniversary of their 1987 album:The Joshua Tree. Last weekend the Irish band entered Europe by performing twice in Twickenham Stadium in London. Let's have a first look at the shows, so that you know what to expect!

U2 is celebrating 30 years of The Joshua Tree on tour. The Joshua Tree is one of the world's best-selling album, with over 25 million copies sold. The album produced the hit single 'With Or Without You', 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For', and 'Where The Streets Have No Name'. And now, U2 is celebrating 30 years of The Joshua Tree with a world wide tour. Yeah! It's kind of logical that the show is about 'The Joshua Tree': U2 plays the entire album during the shows. So that is what you can expect at least. What else? Let's have a look at the setlist of the show at the Twickenham Stadium in London.

Setlist

Saturday was the first night in London and they played 24 songs in total. Looking at the setlist you can see that they - of course- played the full Joshua Tree album. Yes, that means that you will hear beauty's like 'Red Hill Mining Town' and 'Running To Stand Still' live. But there is another surprise in the Saturdays setlist. Noel Gallagher provided support for U2's 'The Joshua Tree' tour. At the end of the show, U2 invited Gallagher on stage to perform an encore. Watch them perform 'Don't Look Back In Anger' below:

Production and Stage

U2 shows are always an impressive production with a great stage and impressive lights. For the Joshua Tree tour they brought something that looks like an enormous movie tape which features the famous Tree:
