It's always a treat for us when we have an opportunity to offer a very rare historical Pink Floyd poster and this example by artist Robert E. Brown is in amazing MUSEUM QUALITY condition! Brown's work in the 60's appeared in Yellow Dog Comix and Promethean Enterprises.

 

By spring of 1970 David Gilmour had come into his own within the band and their live performances throughout their US spring tour were quickly becoming legendary. In early May their spaceship landed at the Terrace Ballroom located on Main Street in Salt Lake City Utah.

 

Originally called Coconut Grove when it opened in the 1930's this ballroom would come to host shows in the sixties and seventies by popular bands like The Doors Frank Zappa The Grateful Dead and more. It's location was surrounded by Mormons few of which were interested in being part of a young peoples psychedelic movement therefore posters from this venue seem to be extra hard to find. They were printed in very small quantities of 500 which makes them extremely rare these days in ANY condition. Examples of this poster in lesser condition have sold in the past for around $800 in other public auctions. This is the finest quality we have ever handled of this highly sought after issue.
