This awesome vintage rock tee is from 1978 and is for the band Black Sabbath from their Never Say Die Tour. Never Say Die! was the group's eighth studio album and the last one to feature the group's original lineup of Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward. Osbourne would not appear on another Black Sabbath album until 13 in 2013. The album included the songs "Junior's Eyes", "A Hard Road", "Shock Wave", and "Swinging the Chain". The album's self-titled single got the band invited to perform on the show Top of the Pops. Osbourne recalls enjoying their time there, as they got to meet Bob Marley.
The tour opened in Sheffield, England with Van Halen serving as the group's opening act. Van Halen helped to draw ticket sales during the US leg of the tour as they were much more popular in the states than they were over in Europe. There were two notable riots that broke out during the tour, one of which occurred at the Municipal Auditorium in Nashville after the band had to cancel when Osbourne failed too show up for the gig. Apparently he had slept around the clock and woke up the next evening thinking it was still the night of the show.
The tag says medium but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult small.
