This amazing jersey style rock tee is from 1979 for AC/DC's Highway to Hell Tour. Highway to Hell was the sixth studio album to be released by the iconic Australian rock band. It was also the last to feature singer Bon Scott, who died the following year. The album became AC/DC's first LP to break the US Top 100, peaking at number 17, and it subsequently propelled the band into the top ranks of hard rock acts. Highway to Hell became the second best-selling album released by the group, surpassed only by Back in Black. It included the songs "Girls Got Rhythm", "Touch Too Much", and "Night Prowler".
The band was already beginning work on their next album in 1980 when Scott died of alcohol poisoning. The band was unsure how to move past the loss of their singer and considered disbanding, before Scott's parents insisted that he would want them to continue on without him. The ex-singer of the glam rock band Geordie, Brian Johnson auditioned for the group and ultimately became Scott's replacement. With their new lead vocalist the group was able to release the iconic Back in Black, which was dedicated to Scott's memory.
Fits like a modern unisex adult small. There's some discoloration and small holes, see pics.
