We are excited to offer this 1971 Fleetwood Mac cardboard poster for the FIRST time in any PAE Auction! The concert took place on February 10th 1971 at Gardens Auditorium in Vancouver BC. At this time in the group's history Christine McVie had only officially been with the band for less than a year. Around the time of this February 10th show Guitarist Jeremy Spencer said he was going out to "get a magazine" at a hotel but then never returned. After several days of searching it was discovered that Spencer had joined a religious cult. A week or so later he left the band for good. Their old guitarist Peter Green was asked to step in as a replacement for the remaining shows on the tour. Later in the year the band hired Bob Welch as their new guitarist who stayed with them until 1974 just one of many lineup changes that occurred in Fleetwood Mac history. In September of 1971 they released their fifth studio album  Future Games. 

Reprints of this poster have circulated the internet but the original is more difficult to come by. This example is the original poster!
