U2: U Can Own Their Gear
U2 is auctioning off some of their equipment and memorabilia to raise money for The Edge’s Music Rising charity, which he established to help musicians who lost equipment following Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
Bassist Adam Clayton is parting with the bass rigs he used on the band’s 360° tour along with an Aguilar Bass. Also up for grabs is the band’s MTV Video Music Award for “With or Without You,” a platinum disc for The Joshua Tree and a signed guitar from Bono.
These items will all go up for bids along with memorabilia from The Beatles, Stones and many others at the Music Icons, Legends and Rebels auction on Saturday at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York.
