The legendary T-Shirt was put up for auction in 2014. It was obtained by Michael Dever, a promoter’s representative in Germany who says that Cobain had left the T-Shirt in the dressing room at Terminal 1 after the show. After it was brought to his production office, Dever tried to return the shirt, but Cobain had no interest in taking it back.
