The Joshua Tree is one of the worlds best selling albums. The album release boosted U2’s popularity as never before and made it possible for U2 to put a tour on the road different from anything they've ever done. In this slideshow we’ll go back in time and explore the stories and success of The Joshua Tree tour, a tour from which some parts may see the light of day again in 2017, 30 years later.

During the ZooTV Tour, U2 wanted to play a show in Sarajevo. Due to logistical problems they couldn't play there during that tour so instead they created a video uplink to Sarajevo during most ZooTV shows. On the Popmart Tour, they played their first (and so far only) show in Sarajevo, finally fulfilling that vision.
