In a press release, frontman Bono writes, "Manila is a first. And that has everyone on their toes…. this has to be one of the great ones!"

"We really wanted to bring The Joshua Tree Tour to Asia," adds Edge. "We'd always hoped that it would include a show in the Philippines and now we can finally say that we will see you in December... We are very excited".
