U2's 1987 classic Joshua Tree turns 30 this year, and to celebrate the band is going on a world tour that stops at Tampa's Raymond James Stadium on June 14, 2017 where they will be the album in its entirety.

"Recently I listened back to The Joshua Tree for the first time in nearly 30 years… it's quite an opera," Bono said in a press release. "A lot of emotions which feel strangely current, love, loss, broken dreams, seeking oblivion, polarisation… all the greats... I've sung some of these songs a lot… but never all of them. I'm up for it, if our audience is as excited as we are… it's gonna be a great night."

Tickets go on sale January 17 at 10 a.m. EST, and will cost $25-$280 via Ticketmaster. One Republic will play support on the Tampa date. There is an exclusive presale for U2 Subscribers at U2.com that runs from 9 a.m. EST on January 11 to 5 p.m. EST on January 13, and the press release adds that there will be a four ticket limit for subscriber purchases and a six ticket limit on general ticket sales. All floor tickets will be paperless unless otherwise noted.
