Grateful Dead Oakland 1995 Mardi Gras Concert Poster. A great way to start or add to your art collection. This poster is numbered out of an edition of 7500. Original first printing concert poster for The Grateful Dead at The Oakland Coliseum Arena, February 24, 25, 26. The Dead celebrate Mardi Gras in Oakland for this 1995 concert. 10.75″ x 24.5″ poster, designed by Troy Alders. The poster is in NM condition. In fact I moved to Berkeley CA in October 1984 to go to tech college and record the Dead at The Berkeley Community Theater when the Grateful Dead announced that tapers would formally be recognized with their own designated taping section behind the soundboard. Mardi Gras shows were always some of my favorite Bay area shows back in the day and this poster is pretty awesome. Although Mardis Gras is typically held in New Orleans, it’s a party whenever the Dead play, so in 1995 they brought Mardi Gras to Oakland for three nights. They commissioned the famous artist Troy Alders to create the poster for the shows, and it is a timeless beauty. I think that he did a great job – this is an extremely nice piece of art! You don’t even have to be a Deadhead to like it. A hard to find item in any case, this one is extra special. Original first printing concert poster numbered 3310/7500. Obviously with Garcia passing in August of 1995, this was the last time the Grateful Dead would ever do a Mardi Gras concert. The poster is in very nice condition. Stored flat in a light tight box for over 20+ years, it looks like it did when it was first made. This is a piece that you can be proud of – it is nice enough to be the centerpiece of your collection.
