Live from BidAmi is one of the greatest rock n’ roll stage worn pieces of memorabilia to survive! It is a custom Chicago Bears jersey worn on stage by Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones in their epic 1981 American Tour
Mick would often stop by to check on the progress of the work and chat with my father. Toward the end of the decorating project, my father was talking to Mick about the recent Tattoo You tour. My father relayed to Mick I (his daughter) was such a fan of the Rolling Stones, and that I had waited overnight for tickets to 2 shows to be played at the Hartford Civic Center on November 9th-10th, 1981. Both shows sold out as I was just five people shy of the box office. My dad told Mick he wanted to surprise me prior to the project ending, with something special from my favorite band. He asked Mick to autograph an album he had purchased for me which Mick did.
Mick told my father to wait one moment and he went into one of the bedrooms and came out with a football jersey. He told my father he wore it in concert and to give it to me with the album. It was the Walter Payton shirt “34” of the Chicago Bears, which Mick wore on the second night on the Chicago stops at Rosemeont Horizon, November 24th, 1981.
I have kept the shirt in mint condition, now 34 years old since worn by Mick in Chicago in 1981. My father recently passed away but his memory lives on his art and such special events such as working for Mick Jagger.”
We have photo matched the jersey to Mick on stage at the Rosemont. We can see the white/orange/white triple set of stripes on the sleeves exhibit the same 1/2 inch spacing. The “34” numeric style on front, back and sleeves is also the exact match and is screened on. Name on back “JAGGER” is also the same 2″ font lettering. We can see the spacing and the squattier “G” style font which is correct. The size is apropo for Mick as he is smaller in stature, and the jersey size is “40”. It measures 20″ across the chest and 25″ in length, exhibiting the cut jersey tail.
All these characteristics are very important to photomatching the jersey however, what seals the deal, is cut jersey tail exhibiting the definitive jagged cut. Side by side we put the photo worn jersey tail next to the jersey jagged edged tail and we can easily see wiithout question it’s the exact same jagged edge on the tail of the jersey. Paul Natkin was one of the photographers at the concert. We have used his photographs as well as other photographs available to photomatch this jersey. High quality resolution photographs are obtainable through his site. Difficult to obtain, is Mick’s personal stage worn costumes. They have brought over six figures and they only become more desirable as these quality pieces become less and less accessible.
