This amazing concert tee commemorates a joint tour from 1992 between two of the biggest names in hard rock, Guns N Roses and Metallica. The tour took place amidst Guns and Roses already running Use Your Illusion Tour which was designed to promote their albums Use Your Illusion I & II. Meanwhile Metallica had just finished their Wherever We May Roam Tour and chose to join Guns N Roses before starting their upcoming Nowhere Else to Roam Tour, which was scheduled to promote their self-titled fifth album, better known as The Black Album.
The opening act for the tour was Faith No More, although Guns N Roses frontman, Axl Rose had been hoping to book Nirvana, before Kurt Cobain declined the opportunity. The joint tour was considered to be a success and earned both band's a Metal Edge Reader's Choice Award for "Best Concert Tour" in 1992. There were a few incidents along the way though, including one concert in which Metallica's frontman James Hetfield suffered serious burns after accidentally getting too close to some of the pyrotechnics. While his injury barred Hetfield from playing guitar until his burns healed, the singer soldiered on and continued to provide lead vocals for the rest of the tour.
Fits like a modern unisex adult large. There is light fading on the front, see pics.
