We knew it was going to be special but damn, what a night it was!
U2 was at FedEx Field last night for The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 and showed us once again why they are among the elite in the music world. To go out and play an album from 30 years ago, where it sounds just as great as ever, that's what separates U2 from other bands. Plus they had a ton of other hits in the set. A massive stage. An intimate feeling with a sold out stadium. Only U2 can pull off magic like that.
By the way, I can't say too much about this but we got to meet U2 before they played. We sat in a room and they played a few new songs for us. Each of them had a different story and a unique vibe. When they do come out, I promise you're going to like what's next from U2!
