1969 Original Who Poster Boston Tea Party, Boston MA, The Who. Played at 15 Lansdowne st, Boston, MA. It features an incredible image of Pete Townsend in his classic mid-air leap. Art by Eric Engstrom, image is featured in the Art of Rock book on page 307 (plate 3.172). Medium flat index stock poster with discoloration and 3 torn corners from usage wear. Approx 17 x 22. WOULD LOOK AMAZING FRAMED or refurbished! Still the best poster I ever did – the strongest graphically anyway. The image of Peter was based on a blurry photograph; I hand drew his visage and my own “WHO” logo using a Rapidograph pen that constantly clogged up. I doubt anyone ever envisioned that they would someday become collector items. They were intended to be posted on walls, telephone poles, etc. To advertise that weeks performing artists only to be torn down, discarded and replaced next week with a new poster for the next show. This poster is real and not a reproduction! The item “The Who Boston MA Tea Party Concert Poster 1969 Ultra Rare” is in sale since Thursday, July 14, 2016.
