To mark this month's 30th anniversary of Achtung Baby, the band have collaborated with Berlin-based French artist Thierry Noir - the first artist to paint on the Berlin Wall - for a special one-off installation at the legendary Hansa Studios in Kreuzberg.
In 1991 U2 commissioned Noir to paint a series of now iconic Trabant cars, which featured on the album artwork, as well as on 1991's Zoo TV Tour.
U2 x THIERRY NOIR sees Noir return with a newly painted Trabant for 2021, and an exclusive mural painted on a section of the Berlin wall.
If you can get to Berlin later this month, then from November 19th to the 26th, you can book a 30 min time slot free of charge to visit the installation at Hansa Studios between the hours of 12:00 and 20:00.
Everything you need to know on this dedicated microsite.
The bonnet of a Trabant will be auctioned at Phillips, London on 9th December as part of their New Now sale with proceeds going to Berlin Institute for Sound and Music.
