HOUSTON – Legendary rockers U2 will be making a stop in Houston during their upcoming "Joshua Tree" tour.

Powered by singles "With or Without You," ''Where The Streets Have No Name" and "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For," ''The Joshua Tree" became the band's first chart-topping album in the U.S. and has sold 25 million copies worldwide.
The North American leg of the tour kicks off on May 12 in Vancouver and wraps up on July 1 in Cleveland, before heading to Europe. The tour includes a June stop at the Bonnaroo Festival in Tennessee.
U2 will play NRG Stadium in Houston on May 24. Tickets for that performance go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 17.
Mumford & Sons, The Lumineers and OneRepublic will alternate opening for U2 on the North American leg.
