This amazing cut-off concert tee celebrates the band Bon Jovi and the shirt is from a tour promoting their third and possibly most popular studio album, Slippery When Wet. The album was produced by Bruce Fairbairn, who would also help to produce their follow up, New Jersey, and it featured some of Bon Jovi's most iconic hits. Notable tracks included "You Give Love a Bad Name", "Livin' on a Prayer", and "Wanted Dead or Alive".
Slippery When Wet was a massive commercial success that reached the top of the Billboard 200 and went certified 12x Platinum, making it Bon Jovi's best-selling album. During development the band wrote 30 possible songs and auditioned them in front of local New York and New Jersey teenagers, so they could figure out which were the best tracks to include on the record. As for the name of the album, it was inspired by a trip to the No.5 Orange Strip Club in Vancouver, British Columbia. The original cover for the album was supposed to include a busty woman in a soaking wet yellow t-shirt, but it was swapped out due to the fear that major record store chains would refuse to carry something so racy and objectifying.
Fits like a modern unisex adult large. The sleeves are cut and there is some light discoloration going around the collar, see pics.
