I love rock concert poster art!

Beware when buying, though. Some of those (especially the rainbow background type and others) are pretty easy to create on a computer. In some cases the posters never existed or contain blatant errors.
For example, I once saw a poster for a Rolling Stones concert with a 1969 date on it. The picture of the band on the poster featured Ron Wood, who didn't join the band until 1975.

Those are some nice ones, Kenny.

I love the artwork from that era. I was not at any of those shows, but I was at this one:

Definitely watch out for all those "Hell Yeah" posters claiming to be from ABB concerts.
Some will tell you that the posters were made for a concert that didn't happen for various reasons, and some will be honest and tell you it's made for a concert that really happened, but it wasn't the poster for the event.

Most of those posters are PHONY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They are hard stock cardboard posters that were mass produced in the 90s in an attempt to sucker unsuspecting people who know little about music posters.

These are the phonies in the bunch:

1. Rolling Stones Altamont (the show was NEVER advertised as the venue was changed 24 hours before the actual free concert!!!)

2. CSNY Ontario Speedway 1974

3. End the War Rally Grateful Dead September 23, 1971 Yale Bowl (This show never existed)

4. Alice Cooper Dillon Stadium

5. Janis Joplin Freedom Hall June 1970

6. Stones/Skynyrd 1976

7. Isle of Wight Festival (The artists couldn't even get the date correct, the festival took place August 26-30th, not August 8-9)

8. Frank Zappa Cal State College

9. Mar Y Sol

10. Bruce Bottom Line

11. Doors Hollywood Bowl

12. Woodstock (the photos are FROM Woodstock!!!! How can a show be advertised if it already took place??????!!!!)

13. Grand Funk

I have several posters. I don't have the real cool ones form the 60's, but I've got a couple of good ones. I bouth this one at a headshop in the Haight-Ashbury area this past summer.



I have it framed and matted. It looks real nice next to the 2003 Beacon poster.

I'm not worried about how authentic they are, I just thought they were nice to look at. I would still like to have them for my music room.

One of my collecting hobbies is San Francisco postcards and handbills from the 60s. The posters are way expensive, but most of the postcards are $15 to $50.

These aren't mine, but I have copies of these:

It's all good, collecting phony posters as well as genuine. I have a few reprints on my walls when the original is too expensive!!!

I have this poster also, I got it for free as I was leaving The Fillmore after the show
the only problem was that neither Dickey nor Jaimoe were at the show
Kimock sat in for IMOER

Hey Kenny .Great post.
I have an older brother who went to the Mary Sol concert.
Even though I do have a Peter Max autographed poster,I would kill to have the 30 or so Peter Max posters my best friend had in his bedroom circa '70/'71.

The good ones I had when I was younger are long gone (damn, that's true about so many things!)

But one I really miss was from Gregg's tour--'74, maybe?--when he played at UGA. The poster was a beautiful, large, black-and-white, pen-and-ink, line-drawing of Gregg's face. I kept it rolled up in a tube for years and years, but I guess I finally managed to lose it in all the times I've moved around since then. Bummer.

There is a poster shop on broadway in Nashville called Hatch Printing Co. whenever someone plays the Ryman right around the corner they print up posters and sell them at the show. They are the real deal. They have been printing posters for years back in the early days of Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Ernest Tubb, etc. They have a website. I went there to see if they had any copies of a Gov't Mule show that I went to left but they had already sold out.

Alot of your favourites are Bob Masse's. He lives on saltspring Island here in Beautiful BC. I see him once in a while at a record store I go to in Victoria. Check out
http://www.bmasse.com/ most of his posters are still for sale and I think he will sign them as well.

I have a signed version of below from him
