BC Place welcomes U2 for start of The Joshua Tree Tour 2017!

BC Place is excited to welcome U2 back to BC Place this Friday, May 12 as they kick off The Joshua Tree Tour 2017! More than 40,000 fans are expected for the first major concert event in Vancouver for 2017. Guests are encouraged to visit BC Place’s website for information and FAQ’s in preparation for a busy event.

In addition to the main concert event this Friday, residents and visitors of downtown Vancouver have been delighted by the familiar sounds of one of the world’s most enduring rock bands; BC Place Stadium has had the unique honour of being chosen to host the superstar band for several weeks of stage production, tour preparations and band rehearsals before they hit the road for their world tour.

U2 will perform The Joshua Tree Tour 2017 with support from Mumford & Sons – one of the hottest bands to tour North America this summer. Following U2 The Joshua Tree World Tour 2017, BC Place has a busy summer of concerts in 2017 with Metallica, Guns N’ Roses and Coldplay all scheduled to visit in 2017.
Since opening in 1983, BC Place has hosted U2 for six concert events: one in 1987, two in 1992, one in 1997, one in 2009, and now again in 2017. The most recent concert in 2009, the U2: 360 Tour at BC Place, attracted more than 16,000 fans from out of town and generated more than $14million in economic activity in the province of BC* .
