Which tour yielded your favorite concert-tee?
« on: December 09, 2009, 07:55:36 PM »
My attendance at U2's shows dates back to ZOO TV.  I have a nice a nice black long-sleeve tee from the first leg of ZOO TV with the baby, star and Trabant images.  Achtung Baby is printed in red in the sleeves.  I can't believe that it's still wearable.

I haven't actually bought any of the official shirts, but I've seen quite a few from looking online. I think Vertigo had the coolest shirts. There was the album cover, the one with the bomb that said "Dismantle", the Edge word maze one...

I like my Zoo TV arena leg shirt (star, trabant, baby, I think), which gave up the ghost a long time ago.  Since then I haven't bought too many, as that one set a high standard for me.

I think the LoveTown Tour t-shirts were the coolest design, but the t-shirts I got from the '93 Zooropa Tour are my favorite.  Double-sided silkscreens with tour dates listed on the backside.  And they haven't fallen apart yet.

Two from Popmart are my favorites.  The lemon shirt with the shopping cart in orbit and also the ultra rare POPTART shirt.  Unfortunately, I couldn't find an image of the latter :-\

I buy the three-symbols shirt from every tour. I am still kicking myself for not buying a PopTart shirt in Memphis.

I love the UABRS shirts, both the one Bono wore and the red and black one.

I love ,pardon the pun, my LoveTown tour T-shirt from Paris . But my all time favourite has to be the Unforgettable fire tour T-shirt . my original is so thin now its unwearable . but luckily i've found a replica one on the Internet which i am now wearing to death.

The UF one is so pretty. I love the red and gold together. It's a nice change from the usual black and white U2 shirts.

My favourite are the 'three symbols' shirts on each tour. Though, to be honest, I thought the Pop era shirts were best. I dislike the ones with pictures of teh band looking moody on, T-shirts like that are so obvious.

Loved the car one from achtung baby. not a tour tee so much as an album one. Wore that one to death as a 15 year old.

Oh man. Hands-down, it was my gold ZOO TV OUTSIDE BROADCAST t-shirt. I wore that thing constantly. I still have it, although it's full of holes now, and literally coming apart at the seams. Haven't worn it in over a decade but I'll never throw it out! #2 is my Popmart Lemon t-shirt (as shown above). #3 is the custom shirt I had made for this year's 360 shows, with the pic of Bono and me on the front, and the 12 U2 shows I've been to (1992-2009) on the back, tour-style. I found the crazy 360 tour font and everything. Fun! Don't know how I'm gonna top it for next year.
