  • U2 returns to the Superdome Sept. 14.

U2 will expand its 2017 world tour to include a show in New Orleans in September, the band's first performance in the city in more than a decade. The band returns to the Superdome Sept. 14 as part of the band's The Joshua Tree tour. Singer-songwriter Beck will open.

The tour celebrates the 30th anniversary of the release of the band's landmark fifth album The Joshua Tree, produced by Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois and featuring its enduring hits "With or Without You," "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" and "Where the Streets Have No Name." The band also recently released a massive anniversary edition of the album with live recordings, rarities and B-sides, remixes and photographs.

The band last performed in the Superdome alongside Green Day in September 2006 to mark a dramatic reopening of the Dome following Hurricane Katrina.

Tickets to the band's New Orleans show start at $35-$75 and go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, June 16. A presale for U2 subscribers at U2.com opens 10 a.m. Tuesday, June 13. There will be a four-ticket limit for subscriber purchases and a six-ticket limit for general sales.
