This sweet double-sided concert shirt is for English singer-songwriter Phil Collins for his No Jacket Required Tour. The tour was launched in February of 1985 to promote his album of the same name. This was Collins' third solo album and it featured guest backing vocalists Helen Terry, Peter Gabriel, and Sting. The album managed to spawn four singles that all reached the top ten of the Billboard Hot 100. They included "One More Night", "Sussudio", "Don't Lose My Number", and "Take Me Home" and all of them were released alongside an accompanying music video. No Jacket Required was a huge success both critically and commercially and it received three Grammy Awards including the award for Album of the Year in 1986.
The tour concluded in July of 1985 with the final performance taking place at the Live Aid concerts at both JFK Stadium in Philadelphia and Wembley Stadium in London. Collins was able to perform at both venues by traveling by helicopter to the London Heathrow Airport, then by Concorde to New York City, and finally boarding another helicopter to Philadelphia. During his London performance he was backed by Sting, and then in Philadelphia Collins played the drums for both Eric Clapton and Led Zeppelin members Robert Plant and Jimmy Page.
The tag says small but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult extra small. There is a light spot on the sleeve, see pics.
