UNLESS YOU HAVE been living under a rock, you will be aware that U2 take to the Croke Park stage tomorrow.

Or, more accurately, they’re constructing a stage on which to play in Croke Park tomorrow.

The Dublin gig forms part of a North American and European tour to celebrate the release of their 1987 album The Joshua Tree – which saw the Dublin band elevated to superstar status, 11 years after their formation.

As has become the norm, the set up for the gigs is a massive and complex operation and drone pilot Nahuel Gutierrez caught some footage above GAA HQ today.

Released to near-universal acclaim on 9 March 1987, The Joshua Tree features U2 classics like With Or Without You, I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For and Where The Streets Have No Name.

It went to number one in Ireland and around the world, selling in excess of 25 million albums, and catapulting Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr “… from heroes to superstars” in the words of Rolling Stone magazine.

Tickets for tomorrow are of course sold out, but can be got if you fancy parting with an arm, a leg and your first-born.
