Vintage Black Sabbath "World Tour '83" Raglan Shirt
In 1983, Black Sabbath, the heavy metal icons who were formed by Ozzy Osbourne, Tony Iommi, Geezer Butler, and Bill Ward way back in 1968, were in somewhat of a liminal period. Ozzy left the band in 1979 and was replaced by Ronny James Dio. Dio subsequently left the band in 1982. The band found a new singer: Ian Gillian, previously a member of Deep Purple. With a new singer, the band worked on a new album, Born Again, and got right back out on the road for a world tour in its support. The tour lasted for nearly a year and went all over Europe and North America and it notably featured an error from their manager when he got the band a Stone Henge set that was too large to fit on any stage. This original Black Sabbath raglan shirt, nicely worn in and faded with a few small ink spots on the shoulder, is from the band's 1983 World Tour in support of Born Again.
