I have a 25+ year-old CBGB shirt that I got at the venue.

Monsters of Art tour from 1989 - New Order, P.I.L., and the Sugarcubes. Front is a neon US flag, back has show dates/cities. Still have it all these years later.

Second is my rose shirt from the Depeche Mode "Violator" tour.

Green Day Dookie Tour in 1994. 12 year old me was stoked at my first concert at the Hollywood Palladium.

Moose said...

@Trapped - from the Abandoned Luncheonette?

Faith no more, brought during the Brixton Academy concert with L7 supporting in 1992. God damn the hot girl I ended up with after is still seared into my memory. The amount of drugs and hot sex we had that night...

I love the gray one I got from the Peter Gabriel/Sting concert a couple of years ago, "Rock, Paper, Scissors" tour. I wear it all the time.

I'm from St. Louis and a lot of bands come through here - YAY! And I love music more than movies and musicians more than actors.... I have several favorites... from 1988 / 1989 I have the Rolling Stones, The Who, and Pink Floyd - - all of which were supposed to be their last tours, their final farewells... haha! Then, 3-way tie for most favorite would be my 1993 GNR (Riverport Riot), my shoddy, not even 'professional' merch Nirvana 1991ish - they played at a small club called Mississippi Nights, and '92 or '93 Pearl Jam shirts. If I love the band, I bought a shirt. I've been to many concerts that I didn't buy a shirt (Rod Stewart, Aerosmith, Nickleback, etc). There is one concert that I would love to go to / get a shirt... but it will never happen now... Linkin Park. :-(

David Lee Roth, "Eat 'Em And Smile" tour 1987.

Depeche Mode Violator, faded as f but I still love it.

Valorious said...

Going way back...Ted Nugent, 1975. Aragon Ballroom, Chicago. Hey, i didn't know what a fuck he'd become. Why my fave: some biotch tried to rip it from my body! It had a tear on the right shoulder that I held together with several safety pins and wore that sucker to many a concert thereafter. It even went with the nascent punk scene! Good times, good times.

Two: David Bowie Serious Moonlight Tour 1983; Led Zeppelin Day on the Green Oakland 1977 (worn to threads)

The Cure... 4 different shirts from 3 different tours..

I lost many concert shirts to girlfriends over the years.

I have had 3 different Sandman shirts "bought" off my back by various generous young ladies over the years.... (ok, not a concert shirt, but very similar)

Themed T-shirts are annoying, T-shirts are fine with basic colors or basic patterns, but it just sad to see some non-famous person humbly, like poor Uriah Heep, wearing the picture of a
"SUCCESSFUL" entertainer on a T-shirt.

Like, I guess it is ok if you all are at a wedding party and everyone is wearing a T-shirt celebrating the bride and groom, or a random uncle or aunt of the groom or bride, or vice versa, but it is so sad to see some young woman who is a thousand times more attractive than, say, poor little old Mick Jagger wearing a "Rolling Stones" T-shirt when she could be wearing something much more becoming.

@Moose. I don’t remember I just recalled Roxy and my TShirt is white with them in silhouette.
I wash that tshirt by hand.. I went to see them again @the Beau Rivage Casino in Ms 4/5 years
Hall is like fine wine, he only get better with age and I love his Music Studio that he sings live his songs
and others ppl songs with them...saw Elton John in Louisiana 4 years ago he was live and he was just
Outstanding. I was so lucky that they showed a picture of me on the screens above, I was enjoying the concert
singing and a few tears fell, RIP I was remembering my sister and the last time we saw him together..
This new generation music is not timeless and it’s nothing like music from the 50’s-80’s few 90’s but that all..

Mine is a Soundgarden shirt I picked up when I saw them at a festival in 2012. That was a perfect day of music for me (Soundgarden, Kyuss Lives!, BLS, Lamb of God, Black Sabbath) and it ultimately was the only time I got to see Cornell, my favourite singer, in person.

Queen The Crest, bought for me by a boyfriend after a Hammersmith Odeon concert. Wore it until it fell apart, mainly as a nighty.
Pink Floyd, London, black with the prism.

Lol I got a Florida Georgia Line shirt from Goodwill, I love it, it fits well and is comfy and good for what I need to be doing, whether it’s gardening, cooking, housework, whatever. I will always regret not buying the Johnny Gill shirt I saw at a Goodwill in Delaware when I was in high school though. It’s weird I’ve been to tons of concerts but I don’t think I ever bought any shirts. I have no idea why.
