U2 return to Kentucky for the first time in 16 years.
The show in Louisville Kentucky on June 16, 2017 will be U2's first show in Louisville Kentucky since they opened for the J. Geils Band in Louisville Kentucky at the "Gardens" on March 13, 1982 during their October Tour.

U2 Tour history in Kentucky:

March 13, 1982 - Louisville Kentucky - Gardens - opening for J. Geils Band - October Tour

October 23, 1987 - Lexington Kentucky - RUPP Arena - Joshua Tree Tour

May 4, 2001 - Lexington Kentucky - RUPP Arena - Elevation Tour

June 16, 2017 - Louisville Kentucky - Pappa John's Cardinal Stadium - Joshua Tree Tour 2017

Good job, U2. Deciding to my state after I've already gotten tickets to Chicago.

To be fair, I'm in such the ass end of my state that going to Chicago is only a couple hours farther than going to Louisville. Chicago is going to be more fun anyway.

But still

Why not go to both? Louisville show is on a Friday. This is a short tour that is only playing a relatively small number of cities in Europe and North America. They are also unlikely to ever do a retro "Joshua Tree Tour" ever again.

Because I don't have the money and the free time to do both.

Would that part of the state be the Paducah area of Kentucky?

Hillary was never going to win Kentucky. Now, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, that is where you should ask registered Democrats why they stayed home on election night. Trump got less votes than Mitt Romney in Wisconsin. Mitt Romney lost Wisconsin in 2012 by 7 points, yet Trump gets less votes and wins the state in 2016. Trump voters did not win the election, registered Democrats who did not turn out on election night in those three states lost the election and allowed Trump to win.

I'd like to visit that area someday. I have ancestry in the 19th century that lived in Metropolis Illinois just across the Ohio River from Paducah Kentucky.

128 days until JT tour hits town. 30 years since I bought TJT, hit play, and never looked back. Taking my 20 and 16 year old to the show. I have a feeling that this is one they'll be telling their grandkids about one day! Who's all going to be there?
