PAPERLESS TICKETS

With Paperless Tickets (credit card entry), please be sure to bring the credit card used to purchase and go directly to your entry gate. If you purchased tickets for friends, you must all enter together as tickets cannot be transferred to other credit cards. If you have both Field GA and Reserved Seats on the same credit card, please go directly to a Box Office Resolution window with your credit card and picture ID. If you no longer have the credit card used to purchase the tickets, contact TicketMaster immediately at TicketMaster.com/h/customer-service.html or call 1-800-653-8000.

CLEAR BAG POLICY

Though Heinz Field encourages fans to not bring any type of bags, fans will be able to carry the following style and size bag, package, or container at stadium plaza areas, stadium gates, or when approaching queue lines of fans awaiting entry into the stadium. The NFL’s Clear Bag Policy affects the type and size of bags that are permitted into the stadium — not the items that you normally need to bring to an event. Each fan may carry in their pockets items such as keys, makeup, combs, phones, wallets, and credit cards. Fans will continue to be able to carry in blankets and jackets.

THE JOSHUA TREE

Released to universal acclaim on March 9, 1987, The Joshua Tree featured hit singles “With Or Without You”,“I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” and “Where The Streets Have No Name.” The Joshua Tree was U2’s first #1 album in the U.S., topping the charts globally including the U.K. and Ireland. The album sold in excess of 25 million copies worldwide, and catapulted Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr “… from heroes to superstars” (Rolling Stone).

Time Magazine put U2 on its cover in April 1987, proclaiming them “Rock’s Hottest Ticket” in a defining year for the band that saw their arena dates roll into stadium shows to accommodate escalating demand – setting them on course to become one of the greatest live acts in the world today. The 12 months that followed saw the band create now-iconic moments: the traffic-stopping Grammy Award-winning music video on the roof of a Los Angeles liquor store, winning a BRIT Award and two Grammys – including Album of the Year – their first of 22 received to date, distinguishing U2 as the most awarded rock band in Grammy history.

WHAT THEY’RE SAYING

“It seems like we have come full circle from when The Joshua Tree songs were originally written, with global upheaval, extreme right wing politics and some fundamental human rights at risk. To celebrate the album – as the songs seem so relevant and prescient of these times too – we decided to do these shows, it feels right for now. We’re looking forward to it.”The Edge

“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.”Bono

“I can remember covering the U2 song “One” in bars back in NYC 10 years ago, with Jer on drums. A lot has changed since then, but still – I NEVER thought we’d get the chance to open for such a legendary band, on such a legendary album – The Joshua Tree. Their songs are so timeless and transcendent, it’s impossible to imagine a time when they didn’t exist. That type of songwriting has always been the mountaintop for us – songs that can transcend generations.”Wesley Schultz, The Lumineers
