The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 was the first part of U2’s world tour commemorating the 30th anniversary of their 1987 album ‘The Joshua Tree’.  The 2017 tour visited stadiums over four legs: North America from May to July and in September, Europe from July to August, and Latin America in October.

Researched, sourced and licensed footage, photos and poems for concert projections.

Esquire wrote: “Instead of risking the discomfort of their audience to speak their minds as they did in in the ’80s, U2, in 2017, opts to focus on reaching as many listeners as possible by relying on that giant screen to do as much of their intellectual work as they did: “Ultra Violet (Light My Way)” was coupled with the beaming female faces of “luminous icons,” as Bono called them, from Sojourner Truth to Patti Smith and Hillary Clinton, and “Miss Sarajevo” was tweaked to “Miss Syria” and paired with devastating images from a refugee camp.”
