Can someone verify if this is real Prince merch?

Hi everyone!

My mom saw Prince live during his Musicology tour and brought this T-shirt back for me. I've always wondered if it is official Prince merch, or if perhaps someone made it and sold it in the parking lot at the show (for example). Does anyone have any insight?

Thank you!

The font is wrong, the colors are wrong for Musicology.

Welcome to "the org", laytonian… come bathe with me.

My verdict would be--fake. It's not of the graphic style or cut of what was offered within the venues. Those concert tees were really expensive though, and anyway, you got a nice t-shirt from your mom honoring an act that she likes! Still pretty cool, IMO.

I bought a couple shirts during the Musicology tour, I dont recall this one in particular one. I cant say it's not real if it's real or not
Cant believe my purple psychedelic pimp slap pimp2

They did sell some non-tour specific shirts on that tour that were rather plain/generic looking...the tag, though, does not match the tag in the shirt that I bought. I imagine all the official merchandise was the same manufacturer.
