A NEW museum is seeking U2 memorabilia relating to the band's history for a permanent exhibition in Dublin.
Rare photographs, posters, set-lists, and T-shirts are among items sought by the Little Museum of Dublin on Stephen's Green.
The non-profit museum decided to set up a permanent U2 exhibition after a record number of visitors came to an exhibition of photographs which opened in May.
"We've had people coming from as far away as Greece and Italy. The response has been incredible," museum director Trevor White told the Irish Independent.
The former publisher believes it's high time Dublin had a museum to celebrate U2.
"We envisage a place where fans can see memorabilia from throughout U2's career. But we need help from the public" added Mr White.
Members of the public with rare U2 memorabilia should contact Simon O'Connor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
