While searching YT for any shows I may have missed, I found these two shows from the 1992 F.U.C.K. tour:

I was amazed to see Ed wearing his blue and red jumpsuits from the 1980 Invasion Tour days. Does anyone know how often he pulled these stage clothes out? Did he wear them at any other time during the 91-92 tour? Just curious.

Not the 1980 jumpsuits. Still a cool find, though.

Ed did wear the jumpsuits during a stretch of the tour in the south.

It was right after this they had to postpone some shows due to

Sam’s voice. When I saw the Auburn Hills shows, Ed was wearing

his usual t-shirt & jeans.


When you turn on your stereo, does it return the favor?

Looks like the same red suit from this pic:

Of course he probably had several made. I just find it interesting when they make the odd choice during a tour. When they play a one off song, or use a one off guitar or in this case a classic wardrobe choice from the early days. Maybe it’s a way of keeping things interesting on the road.

It did seem Sammy was a little road worn at this point. He keeps mentioning that he’s trying not to say the same thing every night. I love the harsh critique of the homemade banner in Knoxville. He seems tired.

I noticed the Knoxville show was the day after Right Now was released as a single. That night they had trouble with the playback, Sam was clearly pissed. Also, Sammy has stated how much he disliked making that video.
