    After U2 wrapped up a show in Tampa Bay yesterday, 64 trucks carried stage and crew to Louisville for the next stop on the 2017 Joshua Tree Tour. Tonight's performance will be U2's first stadium show in Louisville.

    U2 tour director Craig Evans has toured with the band since 1997. He says this tour was conceived in just over four months, whereas tours normally are planned one to two years in advance. The quick planning ensured that the tour would coincide with the 30th anniversary of the original 1987 Joshua Tree Tour. Despite the short preparation time, the show is not wanting in wow factor -  especially not with a 200 x 40 foot ultra high definition (​7.6k) video screen reaching across the stadium - as seen below.

    Though U2 has played indoor stadium tours over the years, they've always felt their shows were best in large outdoor stadiums, and so have returned outside for this international anniversary tour. Tickets are still available, and Papa Johns Cardinal Stadium has opened up more seats.
