Landing Beetle Shirt - Version A
This one is the first example i am sharing of what i like to call the Journey "landing beetle" shirts. The artwork appears on the cover of the Escape tour souvenir book and this cool picture disc i have and a couple other shirts forthcoming. To me it means that Journey is otherworldly and is gracing us with their hard rockin presence as a special treat.
This one has the stadium scene that was also used by the Rolling Stones - but instead of the beetle it has some dragon sitting in there. The two bands toured together once, so i assume that is how such a dubious partnership arose. These shirts were made for several shows, and only the town name and venue is different among them. Its a common shirt.
