This cool double-sided concert t-shirt is for the beloved English new wave musician Elvis Costello, and the shirt commemorates the singer's tour for his 1994 album Brutal Youth. This was the first album since 1986 to feature recordings from both Costello and his band the Attractions. Costello began playing music in the London pub rock scene of the early 1970s, but his career didn't take off until the first wave of British punk and new wave which emerged at the end of the decade. He first formed his backing band the Attractions in 1977 and they appeared on his second studio album This Year's Model.

After creative differences caused Costello to split with the band in 1986, he continued on as a solo artist and released the albums Spike and Mighty Like a Rose. The early 90s saw Costello experiment some with classical music and he collaborated with Brodsky Quartet on The Juliet Letters. His return to both rock and roll and playing with the Attractions was a great success. Brutal Youth made it to the number two spot on the UK Charts and included the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks top ten hit "13 Steps Lead Down".
