This sweet double-sided concert tee is for the Irish rock band U2 and the shirt commemorates the band's 1985 tour promoting their album The Unforgettable Fire. This was the group's fourth studio album and they based the title on an art exhibit about the bombing of Hiroshima. For this album, U2 was looking to experiment with a new direction for their music. After the harder-hitting rock sound of their previous release War, the band chose to hire Brian Eno and Daniel Lanois as their producers, and the duo helped them to experiment with a more ambient sound.

This new sound proved tricky to translate from the studio to stage. For the Unforgettable Fire Tour, U2 had to introduce programmed sequencers to recreate the complex layering of textures that their new music required. Amidst the tour, the group performed during the Live Aid benefit at Wembley Stadium. Their performance at the concert is remembered for their 12-minute long rendition of their song "Bad", during which lead singer Bono entered into the crowd to dance with a random female fan.

Fits like a modern unisex adult small. There is screenprint burn on both the front and the back, see pics.
