Brick & mortar and future don't belong in the same sentence. Probably a pop up store.

I'll also say that the tongue logo has been a fashion pattern for years, worn mostly by people who don't even know what it means. That's not U2's case.
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...

Eventually, I wouldnít be suprised to see a U2 store in Dublin.

Hereís a few pics of the Stones store

The one thing U2 doesnít have is great merchandise and an identifiable logo. Iíve bought many Stones, the Who, and other shirts over the years but havenít bought a U2 shirt since the Elevation tour.

This is U2's logo:



I realize that is JT30, but whether that tree is gold on black, black on red, black on white, or anything else, that's the shape that is identifiably U2's.

I used to collect the 3 logos t-shirts. Great call for undercover U2 fans. Nobody ever picked up, though.
