These were the jeans I'd always wear to gigs in Manchester in the mid/late 80s, and over time I added patches, bleach, safety pins, etc. Eventually, my mum complained about "the state of them!" and insisted I threw them out. I would go out wearing other jean,s with these jeans in a plastic bag, and would change into them on the train. There are four Black Sabbath patches, one Led Zeppelin, and one Kerrang. I added the beer towel to cover a massive hole I accidenally created with the over-enthusiastic use of bleach.
The tour went from August 1983 when it kicked off with dates at Birmingham NEC until March 1984. Support bands included Diamond Head.

This is the denim jacket I pretty much lived in between 1986 and 1989, when it got a bit too small. Most patches came from a stall at Basingstoke market.
