Foo Fighters are bringing back a t-shirt from the band’s inaugural tour in 1995 to raise money for independent music venues amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The sage-green shirt commemorates the Foos’ February 1995 show at the Jambalaya Club in Arcata, California with the date, city and venue printed on the back. The front features a graphic of an alien, in reference to the extra-terrestrial influence on the band’s name.

Proceeds will benefit the National Independent Venue Association, or NIVA. The organization previously published an open letter to Congress asking for financial assistance in support of independent venues, which was signed by Dave Grohl and company, among many other artists.

You can pre-order the shirt now via Shop.FooFighters.com.
