So, what are you waiting for? Catch the sensational band live in Missouri by purchasing U2 Kansas City tickets now.
When it first started out in 1976, U2 could not be placed in any existing musical genre. However, that did not prove too daunting a prospect for the band members, since they created their own original sound, resulting in the creation of and a market for pop/rock music. U2’s originality and musical success has inspired many artists after them, including Noel Gallagher, Coldplay and Snow Patrol. The longevity of their career is particularly note-worthy. Despite having gone off the radar for a while, their official comeback since 2014 has been going strong, with two albums being released and toured since. The band is currently working on its new album, Songs of Experience which is set to release some time next year.
The first ever Joshua Tree Tour took place in 1987, when Ronald Regan was still president. The album was politically charged, focusing on women’s rights, terrorism, refugees and war. It is interesting, then, how 2017 is not much different. U2 have picked up on this point as well and stress that this tour is not a nostalgic one. The first leg of the tour has lived up to this claim since lyrics have been altered in order to fit modern predicaments and depict current issues. As a result, the tour is bound to be fresh and current, while still retaining the classic elements of U2. This is a concert you do not want to miss.
