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

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!
