Wonder if it was sold at the show? Nice looking print.
The Ottawa poster was for sale at the main merch tent for $35.

It is obvious now that since Ed Vedder and PJ restrict the artist so much that the posters are not as good

the soundgarden posters have been turning out better and I am sure that the artist had full creative rights
mmmm Beer :pint:

not sure who did last night's poster, but according to one forum, it was 3 or 4 wolves in a rusted cage.

It's pretty ugly in my opinion. Here is a link to it. http://www.gigart.com/2011/2011.grid.htm

depends on who is doing two posters. I could see JR, Soto, Klausen, for sure doing two. That would throw the list off for sure, lol.

I'm hoping for Taylor or Klausen for Chicago, myself.

oh, and the next poster should be pretty nice ;)

I know I am pipedreaming here but there are more shows than artists named and The RedRocks show on Colorado happens to fall on The Late Great Dr Hunter S Thompson's birthday so I am fantasizing a Steadman piece (or at least a Gonzo tie-in).
