It was 20 years ago today - well nearly

Anyone else got one of these?

:D I thought I had lost it but found it turning out a cupboard the other day.
:D :D :D

I bought it at the Albert Hall concert in 1988 - what a show that was. My sister had the other style, black with gold lettering. She still wears it.
I have posted it up large in case anyone wants to save the image. Although it's a bit faded now - like its owner

Yes, I bought an identical one at that same concert at RAH.
It was a gift for a girl who was sadly unable to accompany me on that day. We've been together now for almost 20 years, have 2 sons.... and also the Tshirt.
We missed Leonard's '93 tour,but this June we'll see LC in a Manchester concert together. :D

That must have been really near where I was sitting - can't find my ticket unfortunately. I remember how quiet it was when he sang as though the audience was inhaling every word. I do have the show's programme, somewhere. They don't seem to do programmes much now, I think not at all in the USA. Do they still do produce them in Europe?

I love that image from I'm Your Man, honeyrose - but, for collectibles, I think The Future had the best image. Very clean, and so identifiable. Still, yours is pretty cool too. I'm killing myself for being elsewhere during that tour.
