Blue Oyster Cult Robbie Laws Concert Poster. This original 11x17 inch telephone pole poster was printed to advertise Blue Oyster Cult with Robbie Laws and the Urban Allstars 2/9/90(possibly '96) at The Roseland in Portland, OR. Design by Mike King.

Today’s concert posters and handbills are simply the newest in a long and colorful history of entertainment posters beginning with the letterpress style vaudeville broadsides produced to advertise events at the turn of the century. From there we go to the French Art Nouveau posters of the 1920’s, the boxing style posters of the 1950’s, and on up to the Fillmore posters of the Sixties and Seventies.

The newest wave began with the “cut and paste” styles of the late 1970’s punk scene, and exploded with the mid-eighties popularity of Frank Kozik’s silkscreen monstrosities. We are now witnessing the most extensive poster scene since the advent of music with quality posters being commissioned for events large and small, ranging in design from simple and elegant to explosive and angry. There are many ongoing series such as the New Fillmore & Electric Factory, as well as many artist specific series. All are printed in limited editions, which are actually much smaller than in previous eras. For example, a large run these days is around 1000 prints, where as  many Fillmore Era posters were printed in runs of around 3000 prints. These posters are only becoming more relevent as the traditional visual elements of music are disappearing with the decline of record album cover art from the LP, to the Compact Disc ( CD ), to the MP3 and so on. Traditionally, the posters also give other relevent information such as price of tickets, venue information, sponsors and will often display an era photograph of the performers during periods when they were performing but not recording.

At Concertposterart we concentrate on officially commissioned works produced to advertise the event, though some of the material may also have been used for commemorative purposes. All of the pieces we present are the original first printing. Not just a dealer, we maintain one of the world’s largest archives of this type of material.

While documentation of the newer material is still in its infancy, you can bet that the cultural value of the material will follow in the footsteps of its predecessors. In fact, certain areas of the current memorabilia scene are quickly chasing the values of the earlier material, now that a base has been established through a 100 year history of ongoing desirability.

That said, concert posters in general are a proven investment, and hey…they look much better in a frame than your bank statement.
