Title: U2 shirt at Walmart!
Post by: RobBankRobber on May 17, 2009, 10:38:59 PM
Picked up this U2 shirt today, at WALMART of all places!!

I was totally surprised to see it there.. and it was only 10 BUCKS!!!

And if that's not good enough, it comes with a FREE subscription for 12 issues of Rolling Stone Magazine. No strings attached.

Run out and get one while they're available!

MJ, are they really that orange-red color? I was gonna ask Rob if there was some weird filter on his camera when he took the pic.

Yes, that's the color.
They also have AC/DC, Kid Rock, Nirvana, plain guitar and amp and others as well. My store had them on a table in the men's department. You do get a year subscription to Rolling Stone for buying it too.

No way.  :o I'm running out there to get one tomorrow. Hope my WalMart is carrying them. I'll come & post here tomorrow if I find one.

I think I'll snag one too. Hopefully they'll have 2X or 3X.

They're a bit more on the red side than my picture shows. My flash brightened it up a little.

A really cool shirt for Walmart though. It's got a soft, thin, vintage look and feel to it.

Word up, Rob.  Good enough for me. Thanks!

I agree, they are more red than shown here.

The cost is $10 up to XL and $12 for sizes above that. I thought the price was reasonable but wish it came in a different color. Red is the only option for U2.

Post by: the Edge Gotto on May 18, 2009, 08:44:12 AM
I didn't find the shirt on their website. I also live kinda far from WalMart so there is a low chance of me getting one. Honestly, I find WalMart a little scary too.

OMG, I just bought that same shirt and wore it to a U2charist my youth group put on! And I'm taking full use of the Rolling Stone subscription (now THAT'S what I call promotion - instead of making people pay to advertise for you, give them a real incentive to buy your crap)(not that the shirt's crap, of course.)

I called the WalMart near me. The said that they probably don't have it any more. It's actually been sort if a drama. I'll call the other near by stores.

Thanks for the offer. I told my mom about the shirt today. She said to just give up on it. In the scheme of things it's not a huge deal. Thanks for the offer though.

I'll check online in the men's dept later yooper. If I don't find it I'll pm you in the morning and perhaps you could pick it up for me!  I am not sure about size.  I don't like it too tight or too loose. If it is a men's then I think a small may be OK.
Thanks so much yooper! I'll let you know.

Oh sorry m2! Actually I just found out about it not too long ago myself. I just got done telling a forum member that I never found any U2 shirts outside of their official store and all of a sudden news of U2 shirt at Walmart breaks   :o :o :o :o :o!!!
Walmart  ??? ??? ???  It took me a day to get over the shock of it!   ;D ;D ;D ;D

Thanks for the reminders, gang - just got one for me, and one for my 11-year-old son. Little big for him, but he'll grow into it.

They're really quite red, and a little bit washed out, too.

I'm not in Canada? I'm in Texas.. anyway, Found them, they're cool, they're definately red though. & they DO come with the Rolling Stone subscription. There's supposed to be a card attatched to the shirt that tells you about the subscription.
Title: Re: U2 shirt at Walmart!
Post by: m2 on May 21, 2009, 03:38:38 PM
Speaking of the RS subscription, does anyone want my card? I'm not gonna use it for the free subscription, so if someone else wants it, speak up. The card says "new subscribers and USA only."
Title: Re: U2 shirt at Walmart!
Post by: dreamnation on May 21, 2009, 06:08:53 PM

A teacher asks her class "Who can tell me, who is the greatest man that ever lived? If you can answer the question I will give you this delicious apple."
A Muslim boy stands up and says "Muhammad". "Sorry" says the teacher, "Anyone else?"
A Buddist boy raises his hand and says "Buddha". "Sorry" says the teacher.
A Jewish boy raises his hand and says "Jesus Christ". "Here is the apple" says the teacher, "But tell me why did you say that? I wouldn't expect a Jewish boy to give that answer". The boy replied "Ma'am, personally I think Moses was a much greater man, but business is business"  ;)

I don't know yet, I only saw the sticker for the Johnny Cash shirt. My friend up north said she's seen it and will pick me up one. When I get it I'll report back.

I was a HUGE Johnny Cash fan in high school and college-to the extent it was my nickname. Mind you, this was in 1972! It shocked my socks off when I heard Wanderer the first time. So I really have to get that shirt!

I don't know yet, I only saw the sticker for the Johnny Cash shirt. My friend up north said she's seen it and will pick me up one. When I get it I'll report back.

Johnny Cash rocks, birdlover! It is so funny though to hear my 10 year old playing all his stuff! Most kids his age are not playing Ring of Fire!!! :D!

I bet he's great! I got to see the Man in Black in concert 13 times in my teens. He was truly a major influence on my life. It's so nice to see he's still appreciated.

In Ireland we dont have Walmart at all, and I went shopping for a U2 t shirt this weekend. My supplies of U2 t shirts are from my teenage days in the 80s and are now being worn my my kids (they wouldnt fit me anyway!). Guess what? Not a single shop sold U2 t shirts! In Dublin of all places. Now unless there's some backstreet under the counter venue everyone else but me knows about, you can't buy a U2 t shirt in the shops in Dublin! They were everywhere way back when I was young! sigh

Hi Davey!

trust me it is not such a bad thing not to have even one Walmart at all in Dublin!!

Sorry about the shirts, that stinks, you would think they would have something, I bet as the concert series gets closer and more tourists are coming over for the show there will be more for sale?

Did you try the internet? or here there are some actual "record shops" on the college campus that has some "vintage" stuff *sighs over the fact that her high school era is considered "vintage"*

U2 in Wal-Mart?!?!?! 

I swore I'd never step into that store ever again.

Wish they had these in Target.

Remember U27?

I miss those days.

Fudge...gotta step into a Wal-Mart...damn it.

I *just* saw this tee today at Rue 21. As I was not in "personal shopping mode" I passed. Rue 21 price is $15.99 and NO RS subscription. They had the Aerosmith, Jimmy Hendrix and Stones versions but I didn't see any of the others mentioned. Sadly when I saw those I thought, man, these guys are either savvy cash machines or have simply become a commodity (prolly a little of both). Then, whoa!, there were the boys up there on a display with stunningly ubiquitous wrinkly button down shirt.  Hmmmm. I had to rethink that whole commodity/cash macnine thought for a sec.

I don't know if my mind has changed but this was the first time I've seen our boys jump into this fray. Dunno. Maybe we'll start seeing old War or Joshua Tree tees next to all the Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Kiss, et al. tees.  It'll be another way for an increasingly aging U2 (gasp!) to keep in front of teens and 20-somethings.

Plus Rolling Stone mag has a few interesting things going on here too: selling their old covers AND coming up with a unique subscription promotion. It's a new revenue stream for them. From a fan's perspective, you KNOW U2 will get a cover in the next 12 months and a freebie Rolling Stone U2 mag is worth $5 right there. Coming from a marketing guy, this is quite the cross-promotion for a paper magazine in an era where most all print mags are dying on the vine. They need cash and subscribers, this might help with both.

Of course, with all that said, I can't say that I won't be heading to Walmart tomorrow. I have the perfect button down wrinkly shirt to wear it with...

It's in the men's department.  The shirts are on a table rack with a very tiny RS ad sign on top.  I walked right by it myself too.  If it had been a snake, it would have bitten me.  Just before I asked where it was at, I looked around slowly again one rack at a time and finally found it.  It doesn't stand out very well.  The shirts were folded in half lying flat on the stack of tables.  That's why you can see it from a distance.  Again, look for the itty bitty RS mag ad sign and you'll find them.

Hey Davey- I was just reading that Walmart operates as Asda in the UK-- if you have one of those, maybe they have the shirt.

Like someone else said-- I wish they were selling these at Target instead. I rarely shop at Walmart. Guess I will not be purchasing this shirt. Target is cleaner and has a better track record on employee relations.  The following story is one that has really stuck with me in regards to Walmart. 

"Brain-damaged woman at center of Wal-Mart suit." ... "[Debbie]  Shank suffered severe brain damage after a traffic accident nearly eight years ago that robbed her of much of her short-term memory and left her in a wheelchair and living in a nursing home." ... "It was the beginning of a series of battles -- both personal and legal -- that loomed for Shank and her family. One of their biggest was with Wal-Mart's health plan." ... "Eight years ago, Shank was stocking shelves for the retail giant and signed up for Wal-Mart's health and benefits plan." ... "Two years after the accident, Shank and her husband, Jim, were awarded about $1 million in a lawsuit against the trucking company involved in the crash. After legal fees were paid, $417,000 was placed in a trust to pay for Debbie Shank's long-term care." ... "Wal-Mart had paid out about $470,000 for Shank's medical expenses and later sued for the same amount. However, the court ruled it can only recoup what is left in the family's trust." ... "The Shanks didn't notice in the fine print of Wal-Mart's health plan policy that the company has the right to recoup medical expenses if an employee collects damages in a lawsuit." ... "In 2007, the retail giant reported net sales in the third quarter of $90 billion." -CNN

But, Walmart did this crap for years, acting like they were doing nothing wrong when they got called out on it. Rule Number 1. Stay far away from any corporation operated by Ultra Right Wing Conservative Christians who pays women less and force employees to work off the clock. Granted,  other companies do shady stuff, but Walmart is the ultimate piece of crap. Personally, if they failed for some reason during the economic down-turn. I would drive to Arkansas myself to laugh at the executives.

Reminds me of one time when I went into Walmart with a friend of mine who is an attorney, we went in simply to  annoy the management.
Manager: "Can I help you?"
My friend: "Yes you can sir! How much less do you pay women at this particular Walmart as compared to the others?!"
The manager had this crazy look of shock, that TWO MALES were asking this question...in the middle of his morning staff meeting (which was being held in the aisle).
As we walked away I said "You know you can sue them right, ladies?"
Then we left.  :D

I agree with both of you. Stupid corporation.

Reminds me of one time when I went into Walmart with a friend of mine who is an attorney, we went in simply to  annoy the management.
Manager: "Can I help you?"
My friend: "Yes you can sir! How much less do you pay women at this particular Walmart as compared to the others?!"
The manager had this crazy look of shock, that TWO MALES were asking this question...in the middle of his morning staff meeting (which was being held in the aisle).
As we walked away I said "You know you can sue them right, ladies?"
Then we left.  :D

*high five*!

But, Walmart did this crap for years, acting like they were doing nothing wrong when they got called out on it. Rule Number 1. Stay far away from any corporation operated by Ultra Right Wing Conservative Christians  who pays women less and force employees to work off the clock. Granted,  other companies do shady stuff, but Walmart is the ultimate piece of crap. Personally, if they failed for some reason during the economic down-turn. I would drive to Arkansas myself to laugh at the executives.








please replace with "religious types"  bein a believer I object to bein lumped in with these folks that are lost in their religion and have no concept of of the realtionship that Christ asks for. As for "wally world" if someone could create a store where those in financial hardship could shop and where the workers arer paid a fair wage than that would be a succesful store in deed !!!

what really bothers me about walmart is that they will put one of those super-stores anywhere and totally choke out the mom and pop stores that have been around for 50 years.  in some small towns everything is gone - except walmart.  it is very sad.  if, or should i say when, walmart fails the people in those kind of towns will be screwed.

I don't think that should have been read as offensive, or was intended as offensive, unless one would be descriving oneself as an "Ultra Right Wing Conservative Christian", which you don't appear to be - just a "regular" believer as such. The point, I believe was about the mindset of Ultra Right Wing Conservative Christians than Christians in general.

I understand why it may have bothered you zip. There are many conservative Christians who are kind hearted and generous people.  Unfortunately, that label has come to be known as a bad one because of the acts of  some (like the Walmart people).
It happens every where with every group of people. I just hope that people in general judge each person they meet as individuals and NOT merely as part of the group they are lumped into.  I will continue to believe that good will always triumph over evil!  Some will call me a dreamer I suppose. So be it.

Now back to that U2 Tee Shirt!!! ;D

the thing about the Rolling Stone subscription that is great is that you don't even have to send a reciept or anything - just send in the card! 

that's trust - you could easily go in and just take a card without buying a shirt!

I'm surprised U2 let this happen...a shirt for sale specifically at Walmart?! This is crazy. What is going on with U2's marketing?! It's like they hired someone that Chris Martin recommended with the intentions of infiltrating and sabotaging them.

They have had some of the worst marketing I've seen lately...weird decisions. Shame, as the album is outstanding.

I got to wear mine to work today because it was causal day.  ;D ;D However, to my dismay.. no one told me how incredibly cool I was!!  >:(

By the way.. U2 didn't specifically market the shirt to Wal Mart.. the t-shirt is an old Rolling Stone magazine cover, just like the other ones.. There are several different ones.. I remember a Nirvana one?, Johnny Cash?, etc etc.. U2 probably barely knows about it, if they know about it at all, seeing how Rolling Stone owns the rights to the magazine cover picture.. so try not to say our boys are corporate pigs just yet. ;)

That's correct. U2 did not need to give approval for the shirt. The image belongs to Rolling Stone and they are free to market their magazine and album covers however they want. Do you think the Pittsburgh Penguins have to give approval for Sports Illustrated to sell the commemorative issue they're about to start selling? No, they don't.

I don't know if my mind has changed but this was the first time I've seen our boys jump into this fray. Dunno. Maybe we'll start seeing old War or Joshua Tree tees next to all the Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, AC/DC, Kiss, et al. tees.  It'll be another way for an increasingly aging U2 (gasp!) to keep in front of teens and 20-somethings.

i bought the war shirt thats on U2's site at hot topic today...next to pink floyd, aerosmith, zepelin, and a few others like you mentioned...

I am still looking for a Johnny Cash one, though. Those haven't come back in yet.

Hi Birdlover. I just got a really nice Johnny Cash t shirt for my 11 year old son on the official Johnny Cash website. They have quite a selection and the prices are reasonable. It is a bit more than Walmart prices but they are much nicer. Try it!

If you spotted Edge's 'new' ones on the Jonathan Ross show, I do believe they are the polka dotted design on the site.
I got the first pair at Hot Topic because I could try them on there. The young people that work there are super nice to us 'oldies but goodies'.

None in the Hot Topic near me.  :(  The girl was very helpful even though I couldn't keep my eyes off her tattoos and piercings, there were more than I could number. She told me they haven't gotten it in yet, so to keep checking.  :-\

As much as I hate Hot Topic, I have to go back. They have so many shirts with bands I like. The Killers, The Who, Radiohead, Muse, The Rolling Stones, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, The Beatles, David Bowie, etc. The choices are endless!  :o

Boom Cha! you are too young.  For us OLC members this is what every record store was like back in the day, all those kinds of t-shirts PLUS music!!! it was before corporate BS took over!!

It's been a long time when I bought this t-shirt in local Walmart. I am lucky because there is still one available when I went there. Many people are also there to buy at that time.

I am going to have to check out my local Walmart.  Hate the store, but a U2 tee shirt is worth it!  Thanks for the info.

Picked up this U2 shirt today, at WALMART of all places!!

I was totally surprised to see it there.. and it was only 10 BUCKS!!!

And if that's not good enough, it comes with a FREE subscription for 12 issues of Rolling Stone Magazine. No strings attached.

Run out and get one while they're available!

I can report I just saw these at the Walmart here in Edmonton...but I don't know how long they have been available here in Canada.  (Sorry I didn't go back to read the whole thread if someone already saw them)
I should mention they are very...um....thin.  They look rather cheaply made and are already twisting and not very well cut. But that is just my opinion.

I have two of them that I wear constantly and they've held up very well. They've not been in my Walmarts since last fall, though.
