This awesome vintage concert shirt is for Joan Jett and the Blackhearts from their World Tour II which was launched in 1983. The tour was to help promote the band's album which was simply titled Album and the front of the shirt features the same portrait of Jett as the album's cover. This was Joan Jett's third release and her second with her backing band the Blackhearts, which consisted of Ricky Byrd, Gary Ryan, and Lee Crystal. It was the first of her album's where the majority of songs were original rather than covers and some of the songs included were "Everyday People", "Fake Friends", and "The French Song".
Following the tour, the group released another album Glorious Results of Misspent Youth. They then played a series of sold out tours alongside big name bands like The Police, Queen, and Aerosmith. Jett was given her own MTV New Year's Eve special in 1984 and she then starred alongside Michael J. Fox in the musical drama film Light of Day. The movie's title song was written and composed by Bruce Springsteen specifically for the film and it was performed by Jett for the soundtrack.
Fits like a modern unisex adult small. There is a faint spot on the sleeve, see pics.
