Anton Corbijn Revisits “The Joshua Tree” for U2 Tour

Thirty years after shooting the iconic album cover for U2’s “The Joshua Tree” Director/photographer Anton Corbijn has gone back to the desert for “the biggest band in the world” as they revisit their 1987 album in a sold-out global tour. Corbijn filmed a set of emotionally charged cinematic visuals that accompany the main stage set for the tour. Shown on a curved 200ft screen that is the largest and highest-resolution ever used for a concert tour, the Corbijn-directed series provides a dramatic backdrop to the band’s messages of love and hope.

The New York Times and RTE have both highlighted Corbijn’s stunning visuals in their reviews of the tour and Men’s Vogue Italia devoted their March cover story to U2 and Corbijn’s longstanding collaboration
