U2 have confirmed they are planning to bring their Joshua Tree anniversary tour to Australia next year in what would be their first of the country since 2010.

Appearing on 60 Minutes last night, Bono and The Edge said Aussie fans should expect to see them in 2018,

"Unfortunately, it’s partly the distance and all that stuff but we absolutely are coming," The Edge said.

Bono added "We want to go, we really do and if there's any way we can, we will."

The iconic outfit is set to release their fourteenth studio album, Songs Of Experience, this Friday.
