^ Drops mic. Post of the thread, for sure. Well done!
Didn't you find your "lost cause" though? I was sure you posted about finding it in (maybe) the gig posters thread a while back... I remember there was a post about it for sure. And that The Black Keys is solid, no doubt.

I am too late to edit my two previous posts, but the Mungo Jerry print I said I added to the database had already existed there and I somehow missed it: http://expressobeans.com/public/detail.php/30342
Wilco from my post before that has now been added: http://expressobeans.com/public/detail.php/268131

Never did find it. You might be thinking of me helping pewter score his Morphine fix?

I don't think so. I was pretty sure there was a post about this particular print somewhere and I was sure it was you saying that you finally found it. I guess I am wrong, unfortunately. Good luck finding it. I think your avatar was the first time I ever saw it.

That explosions in the sky is really good. Had it on my list.

Prince was one of the opening acts for this gig. A piece of history here, if interested:
In the fall of 1981, Prince wasn’t a rock star. This was before 1999 and Purple Rain, “Little Red Corvette” and “Let’s Go Crazy.” He was merely a quirky upstart with one falsetto-sung pop-funk hit (“I Wanna Be Your Lover”) under his thong strap. But Mick Jagger was a fan of Prince’s early stuff and he invited the young performer to open a pair of Rolling Stones concerts in Los Angeles. It didn't go well.

The Stones’ 1981 tour was a massive undertaking that saw the band break attendance records while filling America’s most gargantuan stadiums. The L.A. Coliseum was no exception, loaded with an estimated 94,000 music fans. Make that Stones fans. This crowd wasn’t too thrilled with the music that Prince was playing.

At the first L.A. concert on Oct. 9, Prince and his band (soon to be called the Revolution) took the stage before fellow openers George Thorogood and the Destroyers and the J. Geils Band. Before he even played a note, it was clear that the androgynous musician might not have been the best fit for this macho, blues-rock audience. Prince came to the microphone in his typical stage attire from that era – see-through jacket, thigh-high boots, black bikini briefs. Perhaps he was trying to bridge a gap with his setlist, playing rock-ier material such as “Bambi” and “When You Were Mine,” singing falsetto parts in his natural voice and turning the guitars way up.

It didn’t matter, the afternoon crowd began hurling racist and homophobic slurs at the band, and when that didn’t work, bottles, cans and anything else they could find.

“Next thing I noticed was food starting to fly through the air like a dark thunder cloud. Imagine 94,000 people throwing food at each other; it was the craziest thing I had ever seen in my life,” remembered bassist Brown Mark, who had just joined Prince’s band. “I got hit in the shoulder with a bag of fried chicken; then my guitar got knocked out of tune by a large grapefruit that hit the tuning keys…”

After Prince played “Jack U Off,” one fan remembers promoter Bill Graham coming on stage in an attempt to calm the field-level hordes, to little avail. Prince and pals stopped the set partway through their fourth song, “Uptown,” amidst a stadium’s worth of boos. Stones fans had successfully turned Prince away.

A frustrated and upset Prince was reportedly crying backstage, vowing to skip the second show two days later. He flew home to Minnesota without the band. A round of calls from his manager, his guitarist Dez Dickerson and Jagger encouraged Prince to try again on Oct. 11.
...

They finished their set on the 11th.
