Generous rockers U2 have launched a series of T-shirts to help raise funds for Amnesty International.

The Irish group has teamed up with Hard Rock International to produce the U2 Signature Series: Edition 30 T-shirt line, pledging 15 per cent of the item's $32 (£20) retail price to the human rights charity.

Guitarist The Edge says, "I hope this T-shirt generates loads of cash for Amnesty International and their tireless work towards the release of prisoners of conscience all around the world. Plus there's a guitar on it - so it's a win-win as far as I'm concerned."

The T-shirt will be available online or at Hard Rock venues around the globe.
