One and a half years after Detroit promoter, Russ Gibb, started holding shows at the Grande Ballroom, he began bringing acts up to Canada. His first Canadian show was the Jimi Hendrix Experience in February of 1968. He saw how thirsty the canucks were for a heavy dose of rock n roll and brought the Who, the Troggs, MC5, and Raja to the 8,000 person CNE Coliseum two months later on April 7th, 1968. This 1st printing poster, measuring 12 7/8 x 21 7/8, is on uncoated paper stock similar to Fillmore posters from the same era. This poster is in mint condition, with the smallest white mark in the right border, 2 from the top corner. This would be a very clean addition to a Who, Grande/Russ Gibb, or Gary Grimshaw collector.
