WHERE ARE THE THREE SYMBOLS SHIRTS????????????????????????????????

This, this, this

I mean, seriously! I have a collection going! Maybe that's just a few of the shirts and more are available inside? I didn't see any women's shirts, which seems odd.

Let's hope so.

On another note those prices seem steep....

This is the live nation store for the symbols shirt from 360....

Only shirts I have ever liked are the ones with the the symbols on, like the globe, trolley and record player on popmart....

Ones with band pics on always look tacky to me.

Pretty uncool looking stuff.


My feeling exactly. I love what they usually do with symbols and icons and imagery, but straight up photos of the band are very uninteresting. However...they do have a flask...

The more I think about it ... I bet this isn't all. No women's shirts, no event-specific shirts, and no vintage/distressed tees from prior albums or tours.

EDIT: I guess maybe 9, 10 and 11 are women's shirts, now that I look at it.

This looks like someone who knows nothing about photoshop tried to make a design for a shirt

Yeah I only like the 1st and last shirt. Could just get them online, sometimes they have different ones too. I might just get that $15 bag, that isn't too bad. Though everything might be a bit cheaper in US?

Plus there are SOI shirts on U2.com for 25. Even with shipping its less.

The shirts look cheap and tacky....   Not cheap as in quality of cloth, but just the cheapness of a thrown together photo.  The bed photo and the other one just look dumb.  Just like the Atomic Bomb album cover.  I wouldn't be caught dead wearing these shirts; love my popmart T.   The SOI album cover with Larry and son but it looks really out of place on a T-shirt.

I guess Larry is no longer involved with the tour merchandise.

I am so disturbed for such high prices, I refuse to pay $50 for a shirt again. Sorry I'm not normally mad on this forum but this is terrible...

I really don't like the shirts with blown-up pictures of the band on the front. I am actually really happy with the modern black and yellow look though. I would buy a shirt with the tour logo on the front and the dates on the back but these all look horible.

I always interpreted the bed shot as a bit of a joke in reference to Bono's recovery, being laid up. I never thought it had more significance than that and find it strange that it should be a tour t-shirt. That and the album cover, (which I know has significance, but never enjoyed) seem like uncreative attempts from Live Nation employees who completely rest on their laurels with their money spinning marquee act.

Zero points for effort and creativity.

 Live Nation is a commercial monster their take over of concert tickets and merchandising is a big time money grab while the quality takes a back seat.
Thank God they don't write the songs ( yet).

Those designs look like they were knocked up in about 5 seconds. Seriously, some look like someone just spilt yellow paint on them. I wouldn't be seen dead wearing some of those.
