This raglan baseball shirt is from the Def Leppard 1987 Hysteria tour. The tour promoted their album Hysteria, which went twelve-times platinum in the United States. The album was conceived to be as earth shattering as Michael Jackson's Thriller where every track was a hit single. The concept let down heavy metal fans who hoped to have a sequel to their previous album, Pyromania. Drummer Rick Allen lost his arm in a New Year's Eve auto accident before the recording and ended up creating a customized drum kit that combined both electronic and acoustic instruments. The media's reaction to Allen's accident was the inspiration for the title of the album, which was originally meant to be called Animal Instinct under. Hysteria would also be the last Def Leppard record to include guitarist Steve Clark, who died from alcohol poisoning. The album included the singles "Animal", "Women", "Pour Some Sugar on Me", "Hysteria", "Armageddon It", "Love Bites", and "Rocket".

The tag says medium, but this shirt fits a modern unisex adult small.

There is some serious fading through out the graphic. See pics.
