U2 skips Denver, grabs the Lumineers and OneRepublic for The Joshua Tree Tour

(Seth McConnell, The Denver Post)
To mark the 30th anniversary of its seminal album, “The Joshua Tree,” U2 announced a massive U.S. tour, hitting every major American city save for one. See the full list of tour dates for U2’s The Joshua Tree Tour below. It’s worth noting the band played Denver’s Pepsi Center in 2015. That, coupled with the fact that Red Rocks cemented the Irish group’s reputation as a killer live band, makes the Mile High City’s exclusion a puzzling — if not suspicious — choice. There’s an eight-day gap between the band’s Dallas and Chicago dates at the end of May/beginning of June. U2 performs at the Pepsi Center in Denver on June 6, 2015. May 12 – Vancouver, BC – BC Place*

Like so many Maynard James Keenan projects (see: Tool), A Perfect Circle likes to take its time. The band kicked off with the psychedelic “Third Eye,” a song that closed one of their earlier (and most celebrated) albums, a 15-minute song that would normally serve as an epic encore. Those hoping to hear new Tool music last night had to settle for a few short instrumental jams sprinkled throughout the set. See the full list of tour dates below (via Facebook). Tool / A Perfect Circle singer Maynard James Keenan, seen here in a quasi-Postal Service uniform at Tool’s June 2010 Red Rocks shows, likes to prowl the darkened corners of the stage. 26.
