I was asked to post my favorite album from my birth year and here it is! For some reason I mostly listen music from '90s and after but 'The Joshua Tree' is one brilliant album from the late '80s! Below you can find few interesting facts about this album. //
U2 - The Joshua Tree // 1987 // @u2 // 1. The Joshua Tree is the bands highest selling record with 25 million sales. //
2. Regardless of the success of the final product, making the album was quite basic, Bono saying; “A lot of the songs were ones that were recorded in Larry's spare bedroom or Adam's living room”. //
3. The shelved album title was “The Two Americas.” Bono has said the original name was in reference to “the mythical America and the real America.” //
4. Front-row seats in 1987 cost $15.50. Live Nation’s VIP seats on the 2017 tour cost $1,400, and even fans with cheap seats spent more than $15.50 just on Ticketmaster fees. //
5. The actual Joshua Tree on the sleeve died in 2000 – and a couple died trying to find it. //
