Bono’s rosary beads and Larry’s Bible in U2 auction

Fancy owning a piece of U2? Well, fans of Bono and the boys can scoop a number of unique items in an online auction expected to raise £36,000.

Whether it's a pair of used shoes, backstage passes or candid Polaroid shots of the rock legends, fans can get their hands on all things U2.

But the items, auctioned on the New York website gottahave-rockandroll.com, come with a hefty price tag.

Former U2 stylist Lola Cashman has put the 16-item collection up for auction in the US, including Bono's rosary beads and a Bible belonging to Larry Mullen for the combined price of £6,300.

Cashman was previously involved in a high-profile court case dubbed Stetsongate, for selling items belonging to the rock legends she had collected while joining them on their Joshua Tree tour from 1987 onwards. After losing her appeal against a judge's decision that the items were not hers to sell, she is now auctioning off band items that were personally inscribed to her.

All the items up for grabs hail from the band's early days, with the rosary beads expected to make up to £3,500.
