U2 memorabilia sale off the wall

Posted on Thursday, March 03 @ 13:17:26 UTC by Macphisto

(BelfastTelegraph.co.uk) -- Online auction site eBay, are selling a piece of U2 history - a large chunk of wall from the graffiti-covered wall outside the band's famous recording studio in Dublin.

The partition wall outside the Windmill Lane studio has been an altar for U2 fans self-expression for more than two decades.

A chunk of the demolished wall is selling for $150 on eBay but the bids are expected to go higher, as fans from around the world see it as part of their personal history.

On any summer's day, large groups of U2 fans from around the world could be seen scribbling messages and lyrics.

It is being sold by Windmill Lane employee and graphic artist, John Kennedy.

"I have two pieces and there's only a handful more floating around with my colleagues.

"But to be honest they have nothing decent. They only look like something you'd do in your garage," he said.

Mr Kennedy said he would sell his second chunk of rock memorabilia if the first one sells well.

"With the demolition of this section of wall the only remaining part of the fan graffiti section remains on the original Windmill Lane Studios building itself.

"It's going to be around for a long time yet, so this is pretty unique," he said.

Meanwhile, speculation still surrounds who will support U2 on their second date in Dublin this summer.

Northern Irish band Snow Patrol will support the supergroup at Croke Park on June 24, but no act has yet been announced for June 25.

Other support acts on the European leg of the band's Vertigo tour are The Killers and Keane, while Kings of Leon will play with them in North America.

It is believed Bono and Co may ask an Irish band to support them on June 25, with Ash and The Thrills likely candidates.

However, a spokesperson for Ash said they were not aware of any approaches to the Downpatrick rockers.

Other names being mooted include Scissor Sisters and Franz Ferdinand.
