Concert shirts

I used to have a bunch of concert and band shirts when I was in high school, but I got rid of most of those over the years due to outgrowing them or just needing the space. I have aquired some new ones in recent years and wear them all the time, well not at work, but I do wear them at home. My brother was up for a visit recently and he looked at the Lizzy Borden shirt I was wearing and said "I thought you grew out of that stuff" and I responded "Why would I want to do that?". Anyway the favorite band shirt that I currently own is a Van Halen shirt I bought in the mid 90's. It has the logo from the first album on the front and Eddie's white guitar on the back. Probably the oldest shirt I have is a Metallica shirt from 1988. Do you or did you have a band or concert that you liked above all of the rest?

I sadly did not have any other than Tiffany. But you should save yours. People pay BIG money for them in thrift shops. They put some of those stones on with that Bedazzler thing and they sell for hundreds.

I had a Scorpion's 'Virgin Killer' T-shirt that got me sent home for a day. It was swiped from me a few years later. I would love to get another one.

I have a Motorhead "No Sleep 'Til Hammersmith" tour T shirt that I cherish. It's an original and I bought it off a guy who actually went to the Hammersmith concert.

I had an Erasure shirt that I wore out, completely. I'm slightly embarrassed to admit that.

The other day, though, I saw a kid walking around with a Dead Kennedys shirt on...I wanted to beat him and take it from him. :-)

I have this Morbid Angel, Altars of Madness shirt from 1991 that I'm still hanging onto. It's probably my oldest shirt and it is so beat up that I can only wear it around the house.

I used to have this awesome Slayer shirt that said, Slaytanic Wermancht(sp?). I think that my mom threw it out because she was terrified of it.

I used to have a KISS shirt from the Crazy Nights tour that had Paul Stanley on the front with 2 scantily clad chicks. The back read: "Life is like sex, the more you put in, the more you get out."
Got detention for wearing that to scholl and my mom took it. She still has it somewhere in her house.

The oldest one I have now is a KISS shirt from the Revenge club tour. It's old and tattered and in storage.

My favorite one right now is my Saxon shirt from the Metalhead tour (saw them at The Station in West Warwick), my UFO shirt from the You Are Here tour is a close 2nd.

I had a black RATT shirt with a skull head in white and red bone wings underneath it. I wore that shirt all the time. All I used to wear were concert shirts......that is until I made the fatal mistake of grabbing the bleach instead of the laundry detergent and ruined all of them in two seconds flat!!! I could only save a couple, a Whitesnake shirt and a Scorpions shirt from 1988. They both became holey within the next two washes and fell apart.

I had a Last in Line concert shirt, black and red, cut the sleeves off and the bottom to make a perfect half shirt, to go with my jean cut-off shorts and no shoes - my summertime "uniform". I'm sure my Mom thought I looked like "trash". :)

My favorite was the VH/1984 concert shirt. The scissors didn't touch that one though!

My senior year of college someone stole several of my shirts from the laundry room. My Slayer-Reign in blood shirt, my Wrathchild America shirt from when I saw them in 92, my Aerosmith shirt from when I saw them, a longsleeve Hendrix shirt and my Ratt-Detonator were all stolen.

I still have a KISS shirt from the Crazy Nights tour. I remember the one vicious steve had, but mine is just a picture of the album cover and on the back it says "I WENT CRAZY WITH KISS." The one I wear the most, though, is from the '96 reunion tour at Madison Square Garden.

Nope, I didn't have have any concert shirts, but I did have a KISS one with the big logo on the front when I was younger.

Too bad you had all those shirts stolen. Those things are irreplaceable.

I was actually proud of my Jethro Tull concert t-shirt ... because nobody else dared to wear one to Metalica shows.

I have tons of concert tees. But I think I'd have to say my favorite shirt is one from Ozzfest. The front is an awesome demon flipping the bird!

I saved all my concert t-shirts from back in the day. It would be hard to pick a favorite, but 2 stand out....my Motley Crue muscle shirt from shout at the devil with the big pentagram on the front...and my Rush t-shirt from Grace Under Pressure...the logo would glow in the dark..hey, at 16, I thought that was pretty cool!
