Celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of its 1987 release, it's the ultimate collector's edition of The Joshua Tree.

A live recording of The Joshua Tree Tour from Madison Square Gardens in 1987, b-sides from the original singles and new remixes from Daniel Lanois, St Francis Hotel, Jacknife Lee, Steve Lillywhite and Flood form part of this special edition of The Joshua Tree.

Set for a June 2nd release, it will also feature an 84-page hardback book of unseen personal photography shot by The Edge during the original Mojave Desert photo session in 1986. "When I see the people we were back then,” writes Edge, in his introduction. "I see a bunch of pilgrims on a journey towards some kind of creative home. I think that really does capture the spirit of the band at that time.” What does The Joshua Tree mean to you ?

Check the full tracklisting and special content on all 30th anniversary formats below.

The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 opens in Vancouver on 12th May, kicking off a run of stadium dates across North America and Europe, including U2’s first ever U.S. festival headline appearance at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival this summer. More here

The Unforgettable Fire
I have been an admirer of U2 since I was 15, am now 47, with a 23 year old son on the autism spectrum. He is my greatest accomplishment, as he has few symptoms that remain Music helped to engage his curiosity and was instrumental in pulling him out of his prison. I passed on his love for your music as he is a huge fan of the entire band, and Brian Eno as well. Would love to.be there at one of your shows, but isn't that simple for us. I will be there in spirit and promise myself to bring him another year. It is one of my dreams to see you in person sometime. Have a great tour, and God bless you and all of your loved ones.

running to stand to still
I have been running to stand still for a long time, like many of us...I hope to hear that song in tampa, florida and in many other cities. I can't wait to connect to songs about Iris..Iris is a memory and song and a flower and a star for me. Please sing it!!

Happy birthday
I've been a fan from the beginning and the news of the 30th anniversary concert and goodies made my day. I bought the original JT album and went to the concert I then bought the 20th anniversary addition, I've not been able to decide on the super delux vinyl or super delux cd sets so I've bought both! I have also got my tickets for the London shows. The Joshua tree has been and big part of my life, I've even got it tattooed on my leg! Looking forward to the summer

The Joshua Tree: Cover picture that got
There are very few things in life which you think of and it ALWAYS returns that joy of life. One Tree Hill is so charismatic that when I was 21 and suffered so much from Asthma, I used to simply play One Tree Hill cassette on my old tape recorder. My breadth calmed down, filled my heart with new hope, with hope that life isn't that bad. It gave me strength. People around me thought I was somewhat crazy to hear a song like that and feel that I am getting alright. Years passed over, my hairs now started greying out. But each time when I feel like being alone, Running to stand still comes to my mind, Bono's voice, so honestly echoing the common man's struggle to survive. Three chords and the truth..... the book I brought and embraced it. Music, so true so honest, so simple yet so charismatic. I don't know how this planet would have looked like without U2.

A Masterpiece
I was a late bloomer fan for U2. When Achtung Baby was released, it just blew me away. Such a lush sound, amazing. So I went backwards to the beginning. I knew the hits from TJT but I was now hearing it with new ears. It is a seminal point for the band and I congratulate them on its 30 year anniversary!

Don't Forget Pop
We will see a 20th anniversary Pop release? I've been a fan for over 33 years, first single I bought was New Year's Day...but Pop is actually one of my favourite U2 albums. I love that they weren't afraid to experiment. I would love if U2 gave this great album more recognition. Hopefully we'll see a nod to this great album soon and more of these songs added to the live shows. See you in Dublin boys☺

Madison Square Garden show being release
U2 played 2 nights on the North American tour, is this from one night or a mix of the two nights? September 28th and 29th. Thanks for letting us know. Cheers

Amazing album... I would like to sample.
I would like to sample the new remixes. I have the previous anniversary box set, which is great. Also maybe more out takes from Rattle & Hum coming? Maybe a full concert? Please, please, please.

Not the full show
I wish they would have included the whole New York show.....and this is not even a rights issue like C'mon Everybody missing from the Paris show. They cut Bad and Spanish Eyes. I just wish this band, my favorite for decades now, would just do like many bands do and release concerts via digital download.

I just want the shirt.
Love the album, but... I just like the shirt with the Golden Joshua Tree. Will you be selling it without pairing it with the CD?

Please Print More For Record Store Day
Please print at least 10,000 copies of your release on Record Store Day this year. With so many fans attending the Joshua Tree Tour this summer many more of us will want the copy that is coming out in April.

It's a musical journey....
30 years ago. Stood outside the door of HMV in Liverpool with my mates. Got the first copy on vinyl of an album that just blew us all away. July, Leeds and the live performance of that album was unbelievable. 2001 and I'm crawling through Joshua Tree national park listening to THAT album. 2012 and I'm back doing the same thing at Zabrieski Point. The songs are just as current, just as great, just as compelling. 2017 will reinforce this further. Loving the new formats and looking forward to more next Arizona excursions. Timeless.......it's all I can do.......

Rattle & Hum +100
The historical reception of R&H wasnt U2's moment of success at the time but the track history and past set lists show it as one of their best moments and formative to their development towards Achtung baby.. Shame it and the Lovetown Tour arent recognised. ....Gimme Hawkmoon again...Having heard it live in Sydney once along with Love Rescue Me (twice in 30+ years!!) I wish all fans shared these moments.

Where's Rattle and Hum?
Surprised Rattle and Hum is not included here (or at least the studio tracks from that album), similar to the inclusion of Zooropa in the super deluxe reissue of Achtung Baby several years ago. Still looks to be a great set!

I already have a 25th anniversary box se
Mixed feelings about this. A 25th anniversary set was released a few years ago. Why not the big showy box set then? As a result, I'm likely to pass on this.

Remastered? Original tapes used?
I wish I little more technical details were shared for the LP release, for instance, is this a new remaster or is it based on the 2007 remaster? What source was used? Original master tapes? A digital master? If so, at what resolution? Having this information would go a long way to help me decide if I should splurge or not in this realease as I already own two copies and while the new content is nice it is, for me, peripheral and does not add much to the core album. Finally, as someone suggested above, download codes should include hi-res options, this is not 1999 people! My home broadband can support downloading hi-res (192k or DSD) uncompressed files.

Eno and Lanois' "With or Without You" pl
I'm disappointed that U2 aren't releasing more stuff that wasn't included on previous releases. I couldn't care less about remixes. I and many fans would LOVE to hear Eno and Lanois original mix of "With or Without You" before Steve Lilywhite mixed it into a pop song. The last reissue was great for releasing that amazing 1987 Paris DVD. Why not another one from another show, not just audio, but the visuals, too!
