This concert tee is a relic from one of the most iconic Fleetwood Mac tours ever- The Tusk Tour of 1979. It's aged beautifully even after all these years, perfectly preserving that old school rocker vibe. Features double sided print, lovely one hundred percent cotton, and amazing graphics.
The Tusk Tour kicked off in October 1979 and wrapped up in September 1980, after a 112 shows across the world. In true rock n roll style, the band partook in a lot of booze, drugs, overspending, and ultimately strife between members. The production cost ranged somewhere over $1 million- that translates to roughly #3.57 million in 2020, and holds the record for most expensive rock album to date.
Fleetwood Mac prevailed, however, and all the performances and promotion yielded good results for their twelfth album Tusk, selling roughly 4 million copies- not their best work but it was still ranked in several publications like New Musical Express's list of 500 Greatest Albums of All Time; the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die; and Colin Larkin's All Time Top 1000 Albums. Tusk also topped the charts in Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Norway, United Kingdom, and the United States. Its sales were certified 2X Platinum in the US and AU; and Gold in France and Germany.
Some of their best remembered tracks from the album are "Think About Me", "Sara", and "Walk a Thin Line". Core members during this time were Christine McVie, Stevie Nicks, Mick Fleetwood, Lindsey Buckingham, and John McVie.
Fleetwood Mac's lifetime sales surpass 120 million worldwide, earning them the prestigious honor of being one of the best-selling bands on the planet. Their long list of career achievements include a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, inductees of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and a Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music. Fans often may homage to the band through numerous collectibles and memorabilia such as signed plaques, vinyl records, signed guitars, tambourines, and amazing vintage t-shirts like this one.
