You’ve collected all your favorite band’s albums on vinyl, bought tickets to their tours over the years and can sing every lyric by heart. The only thing that’s left? Showing you’ve been a fan from Day One by donning a new band tee.
To find truly vintage tour and rock tees, eBay is one of the best sites for online browsing, while you can also find them at various vintage shops, like Front General Store in Brooklyn, NY, or even in person at the monthly Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena, CA. However, taking a trip to a vintage shop isn’t the only way to find the best rock tees. If you want a vintage-inspired band tee and have an Amazon Prime membership (sign up for a free 30-day Prime trial), you can now shop a large selection of official rock merch on Amazon’s Artist Merch Shop.
The Artist Merch Shop is a good way to see all of the officially-licensed products you can buy, instead of trying to find the tees yourself or digging your way through crates of old and questionable vintage. And it’s another option if you’ve run out of luck shopping the groups’ individual websites.
The Artist Merch Shop is broken down into helpful categories, so you can shop by genre or per music era — there’s everything from tie-dye Zeppelin and Jimi Hendrix Bold As Love tops, to a curation of merch inspired by tours from the Seventies and Eighties.
Along with tour merch, you can also find tees and tanks from artists like Britney Spears, Bowie, Shania, Zayn, Shawn Mendes and other musicians, as well as accessories like bucket hats and baseball caps for under $20.
Depending on where you’re shopping, prices can range all over the place, with some rare shirts costing as much as a monthly car payment, not to mention being incredibly challenging to track down online. For anyone sticking to a budget, most of the tees and tanks on Amazon’s Artist Merch Shop will cost you about $25 and under.
