Forbes reports that U2 has announced a tour that will celebrate the 30th anniversary of 1987’s The Joshua Tree. The dates include the Bonnaroo festival, the first time the band has headlined a US festival. Each performance will feature the band playing the album in its entirety. It includes tracks like “With or Without You” and “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.” Tickets go on sale on January 17.

Bono said in a statement: “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, polarization… 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.
