U2 Prepping Joshua Tree 20th Anniversary Edition

U2 Joshua Tree

If you look at the screens very closely, you can see a message on the the left side that says J33-3. This message refers to the bible, specifically to a part of Jeremiah in the Old Testament’.
Finally we thought you might like to have a look at the limited edition Promo bono which was sent out to particularly important VIPs.
‘He talks! He promotes!” it says on the box. ‘Pull the cord for random quotes like ‘Lets bite the arse of the pop charts’ and ‘They’re boys, we’re men’.

Sound familiar??!!
