I don't typically do band shirts.  But I got a DT shirt at the one show of theirs I've attended (Score), so that would have to be it.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

I've got this DT shirt from that mini tour they did with YES.
it's a cacky military green with all their faces on the front.
Funny part is, I gave the tickets away to a guy on the promise of getting a shirt.
Take care everyone - Bet you all didn't even notice I was gone.

Happy Lives to you all.

I have never owned a concert t-shirt.

I might get a DT one in April, tho.

I barely have any band shirts, but I have that SFAM one and it's my favourite as well.

Oh god, I own dozens of band shirts...
But this one sure is among my favs:



And also a Frost* shirt which says "Keep Calm And Mellotron" on the front and "Careless Prog Costs Lives" on the back.

My father was a Captain in the US Army when we lived in Berlin for two years when I was growing up. I saw the Scorpions play there. It was the 3rd concert I'd ever seen. 1st was Buddy Rich when I was like 9, and the 2nd was the Bee-Gees when I was like 11. Anyway fast forward two years from my Scorpions experience and we were back home in the states. It was August of 79, and I went to see Ted Nugent. About a week before the show it was announced that AC/DC was his opening act. And the day of the show it was announced the Scorpions were being added as well. They were still hardly known here then and my friends knew little about them. They blew even Nugent away. In fact, they were first up, and after AC/DC came out people were still chanting for the Scorpions. Bon Scott told everybody "Fuck the Scorpions, yeah!"  :lol
Nugent was arrested at that concert too. He shot a flaming arrow across the stage during "Great White Buffalo". This was of course a fire code violation, and just before the Who concert tragedy in Cincinnati; so we still had festival seating.  So we were at the rail and saw the cops handcuff him as soon as he left the stage.

All my friends bought Nugent or AC/DC shirts, but I bought a Love Drive tee. I still have it. It really doesnt fit anymore, butI've still got it, and its in pretty good shape.

I also have a Moving Pictures tour shirt. Its pretty "thin" fabric wise now. This of course was eons before I ever befriended the guys. When I saw them in Dayton ,Ohio that year I never dreamt then I'd be friends with them later.  :lol

Hmm, there are a few.
My DT Simpsons and flaming apple shirts are definitely up there.
And Steven Wilson's latest, cause it glows in the dark.

I have literally hundreds and basically live in them - working from home , they're my work uniform  ;D

I'm currently wearing my favourite DT shirt - the 20 year anniversary album collage shirt (Black Clouds and Silver Anniversary) , yesterday it was a Mindcrime shirt, the day before that Dokken : BFTA  :D

In general ...............I have a ridiculous collection of official Van Halen shirts but my favourite may well be one of the knock off jobs sold outside the front of US gigs back in the early 80s'  As an example

I'm still looking for the Metropolis 2000 Jersey ever since mine was lost to the depths of abyss of an EX girlfriends closet (probably shit-canned by now). Then I'll once again have my favorite band shirt. Someday... I will find it.

Both of my Scale The Summit shirts. They were both based on songs from Carving Desert Canyons. Giants and some other one with a guy standing over the raging tides under the cliff.

This one always gets some stares.



And I don't generally like shirts that are just the album cover, but this one gets a lot of "Whoa man that's an awesome shirt"

Orion....that's the one with a bunch of power chords and boringly harsh vocals, isn't it?

Somewhere in storage I have the official Octavarium shirt from the Score show.

Other than that, my favorite concert shirt is the new BTBAM shirt with the owl on the front.

I've got a Megadeth 'Peace Sells' shirt from 1986- I inherited it from someone who was moving.  I always loved it because it was much smaller than all of my other size extra-huge shirts that I used to wear all the time.  But it is unfortunately now, still bigger than I really care to wear.  And the neck is sort of stretched out on it, so it's been a long time since I've worn it...but I love it so much I can't bring myself to get rid of it.

Hmm, from the past, I had a Bill Graham Presents Staff shirt from The Who 1989 Tommy tour, that had the four members portrayed as cartoon dogs, but that got lost in the ages. My current favorite is the Stolen Babies shirt I got when they opened for Firewind and Turisas...

EDIT: Just got this bad boy in with the new record, definitely one of my favorites, the album artwork is just so damn NOICE.

Of my collection:

That Haken one that's posted above.
A dredg shirt I own, with the clouds from El Cielo
A brown Shadow Gallery shirt with the cover of Digital Ghosts on the front and the tour dates of their 2010 tour on the back.

Those are almost the only ones I wear anymore, although I occasionally have a Spock's Beard tee with the cover of BN&DS, an Opeth one with the cover for Ghost Reveries and an Anathema one with the band members on the front and the track listing for Weather Systems on the back.

I also have that Haken one, in fact I need to get a replacement as its been worn a bit too much what with it being my favourite band shirt.
my runner up is either this ziltoid one:

or this Paul gilbert one with a massive robot on the front (couldn't find pic online so I'm afraid you have this grainy pic of yours truly)
