This awesome double-sided concert shirt is for the band The B-52s and is from their Cosmic Thing tour. The shirt has the bands logo on the front and the cites they visited during the tour on the back. The B-52s first started in the 70s as a rock surf band, but didn't reach wide spread fame till the early 80s when they released their break out hit "Rock Lobster".
This tour was to promote their fifth studio album of the same name. The success of the album served as a comeback for the group after the death of their guitarist Ricky Wilson, who died of AIDS related illness. After Wilson's death, the band went on an indefinite hiatus. The band regrouped and began writing new material by 1988 and drummer, Keith Strickland switched to lead guitar in Wilson's absence. Cosmic Thing ended up featuring two of the band's most memorable hits "Love Shack" and "Roam".
The tag says extra large but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult large
