The Joshua Tree 2019 Tour in Sydney: November 23, 1997 vs. November 22, 2019
Updated: Jul 30, 2020
U2's The Joshua Tree Tour 2019 landed in Sydney, Australia for two nights, starting on November 22, 2019, the 22nd anniversary of Michael Hutchence's death. Michael Hutchence, who was the lead singer of INXS and a good friend of U2's, died in Sydney on November 22, 1997. We were at the U2 show on November 23, 1997 in San Antonio, Texas and have raw and emotional memories from that night and the proceeding concert in Atlanta, Georgia. Tune in as we reminisce about November 1997 on the PopMart tour and compare the similarities to November 2019 in Sydney, Australia. And of course, more questions over whiskey and cake for Bono.
