U2 playing a London headline show joined by Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds is a huge deal. The international superstars will be appearing at Twickenham Stadium on Saturday 8 July 2017, celebrating 30 years of the iconic Joshua Tree.

Released back in 1987, it was the band’s fifth studio album and features some of their most well-known hits including I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For and With Or Without You.
