This double-sided dark maroon t-shirt commemorates a concert performance featuring Heart and John Cougar Mellencamp at the Buffalo Memorial Auditorium in New York. The concert took place in October of 1982 and was sponsored by Harvey & Corky Productions of the 97 Rock radio station. Heart was first formed in 1967 as The Army, and they went through several more name changes before landing on Heart in 1973. The group was fronted by the Wilson sisters Ann and Nancy. Around the time of the concert the group released their sixth studio album Private Audition which included the minor hit "The Man is Mine". They also appeared as the opening act at a sold out concert at Elland Road headlined by Queen.
Meanwhile John Mellencamp was still performing as John Cougar and he had just released his breakthrough album American Fool, which contained the hit songs "Hurt So Good" and "Jack and Diane", the latter of which spent four weeks at the top of the charts. "Hurt So Good" went on to win the Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance, and the commercial success of the album allowed John Cougar enough clout to force the record company to start using his real surname, Mellencamp.
Fits like a modern unisex adult large. There are repairs on the front, see pics.
