In the mid eighties The Smiths made waves in the rapidly growing indie-rock scene. Their frontman and primary songwriter Morrissey pursued a successful solo career afterwards. These shows in Seattle and Portland during October 1997 were part of the tour supporting his sixth studio album "Maladjusted" released on Island Records two months prior. This original poster was designed by the legendary modern poster artist Mike King. The FIRST CGC graded example to ever be auctioned and in Museum Quality Condition with no visible flaws of any kind!
