Bono told Bang Showbiz: “Recently I listened back to The Joshua Tree for the first time in nearly 30 years … it’s quite an opera. 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. Especially when we play at home. Croke Park … it’s where the album was born, 30 years ago.”

Noel Gallagher said of his support slot: "It will be both a pleasure and an honour to play my part in what still remains the greatest show on Earth."
