NEW YORK - To celebrate the 20th anniversary of its landmark album "The Joshua Tree," U2 is reissuing the set in four different incarnations on November 20.

The album will be available as a remastered single CD, a 2-CD set housed in a hard back case, a 2-CD/1-DVD box that includes five portfolio prints, and a double-vinyl package.

The DVD is understood to comprise a July 4, 1987, show at the Paris Hippodrome, and the documentary "Outside It's America."

Although details have yet to be announced, demos, alternate versions and B-sides from the period are expected to appear on the expanded versions. Band members have also contributed new liner notes.

"The Joshua Tree," boasting such singles as "With or Without You," "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" and "One Tree Hill," won the coveted album of year Grammy.
