U2 released their epochal album The Joshua Tree on this day 30 years ago. The rock titans have now announced a deluxe reissue of the record, due out on June 2.

Beyond the album’s 11 original tracks, the Joshua Tree reissue includes a recording of the Madison Square Garden concert from 1987’s The Joshua Tree Tour, rarities and B-sides from the sessions, 2017 remixes by original collaborators like Daniel Lanois, Steve Lillywhite, and Flood, and an 84-page book of photography shot in the Mojave Desert by U2 guitarist The Edge.

Earlier this year, U2 announced a commemorative tour where they’ll bring The Joshua Tree to audiences throughout North America and Europe. The North America leg kicks off May 12 in Vancouver and includes headlining gigs at Los Angeles’ Rose Bowl and Bonnaroo.

In 2016, EW ranked The Joshua Tree second among U2’s discography, calling the album “a transporting masterpiece of focused, soaring songs that ripple with dramatic angst and fiery empathy.”
