Men’s Rolling Stones T-Shirt

Men’s Rolling Stones T-Shirt

Usage conditions apply
This is a cotton, Rolling Stones concert t-shirt from their 1978 U.S. tour. It is white with red trim around the neck and shirt sleeves, has black writing and the signature red tongue logo for the band. The Rolling Stones were formed in 1962 by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and Brian Jones. Their first gig was on July 12, 1962 and they have been together ever since making them the longest playing rock band. They attribute some of their longevity to the ability to change and adapt to new musical styles while retaining some sense of their blues roots. In 1989, the Rolling Stones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
