(I wear a Beatles shirt to some show's (except U2 shows), cuz the people there won't say s**t... I mean , it's the Beatles!!)
Definitely ok. Wear whatever you want. If you want to wear plaid pants with a striped shirt, do it. If you want to wear a Henry Rollins tee to a U2 show, do it (but be careful).

I doubt many eight-year-olds are fully in control of purchasing their own wardrobes. I'm guessing an adult got it for him, which I think is actually pretty cool. If I had kids, I'd definitely buy them some throw-back rock concert shirts.

And to give my opinion on the other question, I think it's great to wear other band's shirts to concerts. I had a really interesting conversation with a girl at the Stereophonics show about Placebo (I was wearing a Placebo shirt). I like showing that I'm a fan of other bands, and you never know what conversations will get started or what other fans you'll meet.

like i said, I'm fine w/ people wearing a shirt of the band they are about to see live.

It's similar to tailgating b4 the show and everyone is blasting the group's music from their cars. you hear the same group but a different song every 7 feet. I'm cool with that too. I think it helps the vibe.

I cant believe people actually think about this kind of crap, like if its right or wrong to wear a U2 shirt at a U2 concert. This has never even crossed my mind.. Who cares, wear whatever you want, support the band with your shirt.

It's only not okay if you're going to wear a really old band tee shirt and lord it over everyone because you were into them first.

Where else would you wear it?

Which is more appropriate: a Boy T-Shirt at work or at a U2 gig? Makes more sense to wear it at the gig, where people actually know what the shirt is about.

Wear it where you want, when you want.

Who gives a damn?

Since I rarely pay attention to what other people are wearing, unless it's almost nothing, I see nothing wrong with wearing the band's shirt to the show and have done so many times and I'm fully aware that I'm not cool.

A note to the Single ladies (or others )...this is a great way to draw attention from guys/others (wearing a band T-shirt to another band's concert/show). It makes small talk really easy for guys who are not good at "small talk" (for example: MUSIC GEEKS).

Depends on what show? if its an indie rock show then its absolutely forbidden, if its clay aiken its required. If its U2 - somewhere in between, but i think that i'd stick with another band's shirt.

Thank you, Zoney! As I am a shy, music geek, you put my thoughts into words.

You're cool.

All I request is that a person does not dress up like a band member or wear a costume that looks like a character that one of the band members played during a previous tour.

Go to an indie show in the East Village in NYC. 1/2 the guys there will have the same haircuts as the lead singer. Hipster nirvana.
