This amazing vintage t-shirt dates back to the early 1970s and features a graphic of former Beatles member, John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono. The shirt also includes the words "One to One" and "Willowbrook", indicating that this tee is a rare souvenir from John and Yoko's only publicly announced, full length concert together. The One to One concerts were two performances given by the couple at Madison Square Garden in 1972, with all the proceeds raised going towards the Willowbrook School for Children.

This momentous musical event was immortalized via a television special aired on ABC TV, as well as a live album titled Live in New York City. While the special aired just a few months after the concert, the album wasn't released until 1986. It was only the second live album to ever be credited to John Lennon, and given his tragic death in 1980, the project was supervised by Yoko Ono. The album was also released alongside another video recording of the concert, aptly titled John Lennon: Live in New York City.

Lennon spent the last eight years of his life still recording, and he even produced chart-topping hits with both David Bowie and Elton John, but his shows at Madison Square Garden would end up being the last live performances he ever gave. After 1972, Lennon was more focused on his personal life than he was with performing, and he even went on a five year long hiatus from the music industry in order to care for his son Sean, who was born in 1975.

The knowledge that this shirt is from the last live concert ever performed by John Lennon, makes it all the more special. Lennon was one of the most famous and influential musicians of the 20th century. His initial international stardom as a member of the Beatles already solidified his place in rock and roll history, but Lennon is also remembered for his solo work and his anti-war politics. His legacy has been commemorated with multiple accolades, including a Brit Award for Outstanding Contribution to Music and inductions into both the Songwriters Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Fits like a modern unisex adult small. This shirt is very soft with several small holes, see pics.
