This sweet vintage concert tee comes from Peter Gabriel's This Way Up Tour in 1986. The tour was launched the same year that he released his album So. This was Gabriel's best-selling album with over five million copies sold in the US alone. It included the singles "Sledgehammer", "Big Time", and "Don't Give Up". "Sledgehammer" in particular gained a lot of attention, reaching the number one spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Its music video, which was a collaboration between Stephen R. Johnson, Ardman Animations, and The Quay Brothers, won a record breaking nine awards at the 1987 MTV Video Music Awards.
1986 also saw Gabriel performing at A Conspiracy of Hope. This was a tour of six benefit concerts for Amnesty International. The shows were headlined by U2, Sting, and Bryan Adams. In addition to Gabriel they also featured Lou Reed, Joan Baez, and the Neville Brothers, and some of the shows even saw a reunion of the Police.
Fits like a modern unisex adult medium. This shirt is a white on white ringer.
