On the 7th they were in SLC Utah but according to this shirt, played the Bronco Bowl in Dallas. Anyone know the back story on this one?

I don't thing I've seen that before. For a shirt that is 23yrs old, it looks pretty damn new to me. Sure, it could be well preserved, but I'm thinking it is a fake.

They were in Dallas on the 6th so it is possible that the tour dates were changed and the shirt was made prior. However, you would think that they would keep the design/etc. IDK...
Crazy that that was my first post. Haven't been on the forums in a long time but I thought I was more than just a lurker... Guess not haha.

They were in Denver on the 6th. The shows in Texas were the month prior. All those dates are confirmed.

I don't think it's a fake but it is for November 7th, not December 7th.

Fake, as in NOT band or Warner Bros. approved.
It was quite common during this time for bootleg shirts at various concerts to be sold after the concert was over by people in the parking lot or on street corners while the line of cars were trying to leave.
