This cool sleeveless sweatshirt was made to celebrate the 1982 American Tour of the Who. This was the last concert tour to be launched before the band broke up, and it occurred the same year that The Who released their final album of the 20th century. It's Hard was the band's tenth studio album, and it featured Kenney Jones on the drums. Jones was selected to step in, after the tragic death of the band's original drummer, Keith Moon.
During this period the band was at odds with one another. Roger Daltrey and John Entwistle were content to tour and perform the band's earlier hits, while Pete Townshend wanted the band to become a studio act and concentrate on generating new noteworthy material. Their farewell tour saw them travel throughout the US and Canada with The Clash serving as their supporting act. They'd later reunite several times, beginning with a performance a few years later at Live Aid.
The tag says medium but this shirt fits like a modern unisex adult small. There's some discoloration around the collar, see pics.
