Those arms are really distinctive. Surely only one or two brands that feature that uniquely. Is that some sort of stone/crystal embedded the arm, also? I like these a lot, don't know what you guys are bemoaning. His last few pairs, while certainly unique to him, have been decidedly dated and not really fashionable.

Yap, agree.

Another guess: LANVIN.... i think the arms must be from the brand LANVIN. Google it: "Lanvin metal aviator sunglasses"

I got three more pictures.

Here are the pictures from an interview. I don't think that's a diamond embedded but has more the look of a logo. No Chanel; Versace; Valentino.
Hope this will help you guys!

Thanks, very cool pics.

Nobody knows someone who knows someone, that knows someone, from the tour staff to ask directly to Bono?

It's hard. The problem is that they can be shades from a brand already spoken here, but a model that is only sold in the near future.

Yeah, that will be great. But, dude, I don't know. Let's begin with the lenses: Bono used this pair of sunglasses also in the interview with Jimmy Fallon. In that interview lenses were dark blue, but now, for the tour, lenses are light purple (near to the rosé).
The frame is large aviator (I suppose 49mm).
We should find big pictures so we could see the logo and find the brand.

Thumbs Up

Found the brand (maybe) not really sure but the logo is pretty similar...
"Electric" is the brand.

They're pretty similar to Electric AV2, but... not the same model. The sunglasses that bono is wearing have a bridge that goes from a temple to another. This "AV2" have a normal bridge. Maybe could be an Electric model that is not on the Electric website.

Yeah, exactly. I've noticed that in the left arm there is like a circle logo, but in the right arm there is the brand or some kinds of logos. See the pics I've attached

Where did you find that pic?
Can you find another picture? Maybe with the inside of the arms or just tell us the brand.

so that's why Bono wears other different pair of shades on last concert (different arms, and not square lenses, but regular aviator lenses)
