Rock on! U2 is coming to Phoenix.

Because of high demand, U2 has extended its Joshua Tree Tour, named after its fifth studio album, Live Nation announced Monday.

The band will perform at University of Phoenix Stadium on September 19, 2017. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 23 at 10 a.m.

However, if you're an Arizona Cardinals season ticket holder or U2 subscriber, you can purchase tickets starting Wednesday, June 21 at 10 a.m. through 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 22.

Tickets range between $35-$290. General admission floor seats are $70. However, floor seating will not be sold during pre-sale, said Live Nation.

The Joshua Tree Tour is a bit of a homecoming for the band as it launched in 1987 at Arizona State University's then-called Activity Center (now Wells Fargo Arena) and ended at Sun Devil Stadium that year, according to Live Nation.

U2 was last in Phoenix in May 2015 on its Innocence + Experience Tour.
