1987 U2 aka The Dalton Brothers Vintage Shirt

Post by Jimmy_Vintage »


I came across this U2 Vintage shirt. I was wondering if anyone had more information about the shirt.

I know in 1987 during Joshua Tree Tour , U2 had dressed up has "The Dalton Brothers" and opened up for themselves three times during the Tour , impersonating a Country Band called The Dalton Brothers.

I was wondering if this shirt was sold as merch at venues during the tour?

how rare is this item?

and any other information would be great!

Thanks guys for reading!

Very cool. This is a tee that has slipped by me - never seen it, or dont remember... I poked around and couldn't find any other examples of it.

I also noticed U2 tees have rebounded in value regularly fetching 100+ which has not been the case the last many years.

Theres a rare Joshua tree tee that just went for 350 - maybe this could come close. Usually when a fan sets out to buy a U2 shirt they want it to say U2...unless they dig obscure references or are collectors.

try 350 with offers and see what rolls in.
