In a release, Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic recalls this album, “The Joshua Tree is the first album I ever heard from U2 because it came out when I had just started my love affair with music as a young kid… it’s the album that made me want to write songs and start a band. Joining them for this tour will be the experience of a lifetime, leaving the bucket list fully checked.”

Bono himself is ready to look back with the tour, Recently I listened back to The Joshua Tree for the first time in nearly 30 years… it’s quite an opera. A lot of emotions which feel strangely current, love, loss, broken dreams, seeking oblivion, polarisation… all the greats… I’ve sung some of these songs a lot… but never all of them. I’m up for it, if our audience is as excited as we are… it’s gonna be a great night.”

This announcement coming just day’s after Billy Joel Announced his tour stop in Cleveland at Progressive Field for this Summer. 

The Tour is set to kick off in Vancouver on May 12th before hitting North America and Europe.

As it relates to Cleveland, tickets will go on sale  Tuesday, January 17th at 10:00 AM.

Billy Joel To Play Progressive Field!

Billy Joel announced to play Progressive Field This July!

CLEVELAND, OH (TM216) — The wait is over and Billy Joel has been announced as the ‘major’ act set to rock Progressive Field this Summer.

On Wednesday, the world of Cleveland music was put on ice (figuratively and litterally) when it was announced that the Indians, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and LiveNation would be revealing a ‘major’ concert coming to Progressive Field in summer 2017.

— Get our best stories once per week sent to your inbox for FREE! Add your email here.–

On Thursday, we learned that the major act will be none other than hall of gamer, Billy Joel!

For those that may have been hoping for a more modern artist, this may have come as a bit of an underwhelming reveal. However, those fans of 70’s and 80’s music THIS IS AWESOME! Also, it’s a great opportunity to see the 1999 inductee to the Rock HOF.

Friday, July 14th 2017 the “Piano Man” will return Cleveland to the stadium concert scene. In recent years, several tours that have called stadium’s home, opted for Quicken Loans Arena over Cleveland Browns Stadium or Progressive Field. Both Taylor Swift’s 1989 World Tour and Guns and Roses The Total Package Tour had been rocking outdoor venues outside of Cleveland.

–Did you know Tom Hanks lived in Cleveland? The top five surprise Clevelanders here–

Cleveland used to be home to the World Series of Rock at Cleveland Municiple Stadium. However, since the opening of the Rock Hall back in 1995, Cleveland outdoor concerts have been dominated by country music and a the occassional boy band (*Nsync 2001, One Direction 2016).

Tickets range from roughly $50 to roughly $140. Tickets on sale Friday, January 13th with an American Express presale on Thursday the 12th.

BREAKING: Major Concert Coming To Progressive Field Summer 2017

A major concert has been announced, but not the headliner…. find out who it could be here.

CLEVELAND, OH (TM216)— Could it be Coldplay? Kenny Chesney? Justin Bieber? Or somone else?

It was announced Wednesday there would be a ‘major’ concert coming to Progressive Field this summer. 

UPDATE: Continue reading this page to see our guesses… or Click Here now to see the result of who was announced!

The three names listed above are all schedule to be on stadium tours this coming summer, however, the presence of the Rock and Roll HOF in this equation could signal something else…

–Did you know Tom Hanks lived in Cleveland? The top five surprise Clevelanders here–

In country music, Brantley Gilbert is set to drop his knew album The Devil Don’t Sleep on January 27th, then Little Big Town drops The Breaker on February 24th, and Brad Paisley gives us Love and War on March 3rd. Perhaps a multiple headliner country concert? The genre has held a near monopoly on Cleveland stadium concerts in recent years.

It has been six years since Drake was scheduled to perform just outside of First Energy Stadium (then Cleveland Browns Stadium) before it was postponed due to weather. With the highly anticipated release of New Life scheduled for an early 2017 release, could hip hop fans finally get that outdoor show that was once promised? Could it be a collab with Diddy? Trey Songz? Both have albums TBD for 2017.

On the pop scene there are new albums on the way for Lorde, Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilara.

BUT WAIT! What about U2? That would explain the connection with the Rock and Roll HOF. They have promised a ‘special tour’ this year for the 30th anniversary of “The Joshua Tree”. Could that special tour include a stop in the home last years World Series Game 7?

The countdown is on. An announcement will be made tomorrow.
