U2 Release Amnesty T-Shirt
Artists worldwide have been teaming up with Hard Rock International for more than twenty years as part of the brand’s acclaimed Signature Series program. Now U2 have added to the collection by launching a limited edition t-shirt to benefit Amnesty International.
Hard Rock has been partnering with world-renowned musicians and bands to create and donate imaginative designs for more than two decades. These unique designs are reproduced onto T-shirts and sold at Hard Rock Cafes, Hotels and Casinos worldwide, with a portion of the retail price going towards the artist’s preferred charity. Previous collaborations have included The Who, Bruce Springsteen and Eric Clapton, Jon Bon Jovi, Shakira, Ringo Starr and John Lennon. “We are proud to support Amnesty International and aid in the fight for human rights worldwide through the Signature Series program,” said Annie Balliro, Senior Director of Brand Philanthropy at Hard Rock International. “Hard Rock is honoured to have U2, legendary musicians and dedicated activists, join with us to raise funds and awareness for such an important organisation.”
The U2 Signature Series: Edition 30 has been released in support of human rights around the globe, with 15% of the retail price going to Amnesty International. “I hope this T-shirt generates loads of cash for Amnesty International and their tireless work towards the release of prisoners of conscience all around the world,” said The Edge of U2. “Plus there's a guitar on it - so it’s a win-win as far as I'm concerned.”
The design features an electric guitar with angel wings, emblazoned with the words “JUSTICE”, “HUMANITY” and “EQUALITY”. The back of the T-shirt includes the signatures of each member of U2: singer Bono, guitarist The Edge, bassist Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen, Jr.
The new T-shirt is available in Hard Rock properties worldwide and also online.
