I think most people, myself included, feel that the most appropriate occasion to wear a band's shirt is when you're NOT seeing them. Not because it's cool or whatever, but because there's really no good reason to advertise the fact that you like that band or show support for that band, which are the only purposes of a band shirt, when you're at their concert. Those things are implied by your presence, the shirt is redundant.
The time to wear them is elsewhere, when showing you like them or showing support for them is relevant.
