This cool sleeveless sweatshirt commemorates a concert tour for the English new wave musician Adam Ant. The tour took place in 1984 and was launched to promote Ant's second solo album Strip. This was the follow up to Ant's commercially successful solo debut Friend or Foe, which had introduced him to the American market. Prior to that, the singer had garnered growing popularity in the UK with his band Adam and the Ants.

Strip didn't quite reach the same level of success as its predecessor, but it still produced a top ten single with "Puss'n Boots", which featured Phil Collins on the drums. During this time, Ant also chose to move to Hollywood to begin pursuing a career in acting. Just a few years after the release of Strip, Ant appeared in his first major film role, a horror movie starring Pierce Brosnan called Nomads. In the movie, Ant played a demonic trickster spirit alongside another new wave artist, Josie Cotton.

The tag says large but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult medium
