"If you look at music as emotion, then I think you'll connect us to the ballad tradition, to the wailing and keening of the old music."

@U2 Remembers The Joshua Tree

@U2, November 09, 2009
By: Matt McGee

 

While U2 are remembering The Unforgettable Fire on its 25th anniversary, a bunch of our @U2 staff spent some time last month remembering a different album: The Joshua Tree. It was part of a staff meetup that coincided with U2's concert in Las Vegas. We met in Las Vegas the night before the concert and paid a visit to Fremont St., site of the video for "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For." We saw the concert itself on October 23rd. The day after the concert, we made a pilgrimage out into the California desert to see the real Joshua Tree itself (which fell over back in 2000) and Zabriskie Point, site of the cover photo from The Joshua Tree.

It took a couple weeks, but our best photos and videos are now online, and you're welcome to share in what we saw during a terrific weekend in the great southwest.
