The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band has sold a staggering 135 million albums worldwide. On top of that, a recent report from Pollstar shows they’ve sold the most concert tickets worldwide since 1980 selling a whopping 26,178,043 tickets. Additionally, they came in at number two on the outlet’s ranking of the top grossing tourist artists since 1980 making $2,127,771,684. (They were only bested by the Rolling Stones who earned $2,165,280,638.)

With all of that in mind, U2’s fans are among the most dedicated in music with no shortage of merchandise to snag. Here are just 15 U2 items that’ll meet a fan’s every desire.

    In November 2022, Bono will be releasing his very first memoir Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story. Per its listing, “‘Surrender’ is the story of the remarkable life he’s lived, the challenges he’s faced, and the friends and family who have shaped and sustained him.”

  • 'Rattle and Hum' DVD

    At the height of their Joshua Tree success, U2 released the documentary/concert film Rattle and Hum. While some critics found the film to be indulgent, it offers a peak into the band during one of the most important periods in their career. The concert footage is simply beautiful.

  • 'U2 Go Home: Live from Slane Castle, Ireland'

    There’s nothing quite like when a band performs for a hometown crowd. U2 released this concert film in 2003 which captured the band’s September 1, 2001 show in their native Ireland in front of 80,000 fans. It’s an especially moving show as Bono’s father died from cancer just days before. Bono would dedicate the song “Kite” to his father during the performance.

  • Zoo TV Buzz Phrases Prints

    As much as recreating the Zoo TV stage setup in your home would be incredible, it’s not exactly the most feasible. However, this print paying tribute to the tour’s many buzz phrases that appeared on its many screens is a nice (and affordable) compromise.

  • Zoo TV Trabant Shirt

    One of the focal points of the Zoo TV stage setup (besides all of the screens) were the decorated Trabant cars. While the Eastern Germany cars were notorious for their many issues, they were made into art thanks to U2. While trying to track down one of the U2 Trabants is very difficult — even though one fan did — having a shirt paying tribute to them is far easier to track down and store, too.

  • 'Achtung Baby' Shirt

    The album that led to the Zoo TV tour! The first studio LP released following the incredible success of The Joshua Tree, Bono has often described “The Fly,” the lead single from 1991’s Achtung Baby as “the sound of four men chopping down the Joshua Tree.” He had a point there. If fans thought the song was wild, then the Achtung Baby album artwork must have thrown them for a loop.

  • 'Popmart - Live From Mexico City' DVD

    The Popmart Tour was basically ZooTV on steroids. It was just so over the top, and its madness in support of U2’s 1997 album Pop was captured in this concert film before a massive crowd in the Mexico City.

  • 'Elevation 2001: U2 Live from Boston' DVD

    After the extravagance of Pop and the Popmart Tour, U2 went back to basics both on their following album — 2000’s All That You Can’t Leave Behind — and its supporting tour. Gone were the over-the-top stage step-ups and outfits. U2 entered a new era, and this concert film representing that era helped cement their legacy as one of the greatest live bands of all time.
