This original Fillmore East handbill was produced for The Doors appearances on March 22nd and 23rd, 1968. Designed by artist Jimms Nelson, this bright bold and colorful creation was only used for handbills as promotion for the concerts. There were no posters produced before the shows.

The Fillmore East was Bill Graham's contribution to the New York City music scene in the late 1960s. The venue operated from March 1968 to June 1971. During that period, the Fillmore East hosted some of the most memorable shows of the Era. Unlike the West Coast Fillmore, the East Coast counterpart did not use many posters to promote each show.
