This epic concert tee comes from Elvis Costello's 1989 US late summer tour with the Rude 5 band. It's aged incredibly well after all this time, capturing that old school charm for years to come. Features double sided print, soft poly cotton, and and a classic Handtex tag. So comfy and easy on the eyes.
Costello embarked on his '89 late summer tour with Rude 5 immediately after his 1989 solo tour across the USA, Europe, and Japan- no breaks! This backing band was comprised of various members from bands he had worked with before like Jerry Scheff of the Confederates; Pete Thomas of the Attractions; and Larry Knechtel formerly of Bread. The unique mix of musicians gave Costello's shows a big variety of instrument sounds ranging from tubas and trombones to marimba and anvils.
Elvis Costello started off in London's pub rock scene circa 1970s, and was among the first emergers of British punk and new wave throughout the decade. Some of his most notable albums includes My Aim is True, This Year's Model, and Armed Forces. All three have been among Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
Fits like a modern unisex adult small. Double sided print.
